Health Care

 
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi tours the South of Market Health Center, which opened it doors in March 2011 and serves twice the number of patients as the existing health center with the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

Access to quality, affordable health care is critical to the well-being of America, today and in the future. Central to this is addressing the needs of over 49 million uninsured Americans, strengthening the Medicare system, providing health insurance to our low-income children and families, funding cutting-edge research into cures for diseases, and giving patients the ability to successfully challenge the decisions of health insurers.

The Affordable Care Act, signed into law by President Obama in 2010, ensures that all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care and significantly reduces long-term health care costs. This historic legislation, in the league of Social Security and Medicare, will lead to healthier lives, while providing the American people with more liberty to pursue their hopes and dreams.
