The U.S. healthcare reform law makes significant headway in expanding access to care for millions of uninsured Americans. It extends Medicaid qualifications, increases the age limit for young adults on family plans and eliminates pre-existing condition exclusions for insurance. The legislation also addresses congenital heart disease, chronic disease management, prevention and wellness, as well as funding for Medicare and Medicaid pilot programs.
