Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act  was passed just under a year ago.
The new law made a number of improvements in our nation's health care system for children and youth with
special health care needs (CYSHCN) and disabilities.

Life Navigators organization (formerly The ARC) outlines the items in the Affordable Care Act that are most important to people with disabilities such as the prohibition on insurance companies to exclude people with previous health conditions, in the following article: Provisions in the Health Care Reform Law that are Most Important for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
