The Affordable Care Act (ACA), commonly known as "Obamacare", is a complex healthcare reform that was signed into law in March of 2010. The centerpiece of the ACA is the Health Insurance Marketplace, which varies by state. According to a recent publication from the American College Health Association, up to 95% of the uninsured ages 18 to 35 will qualify for either expanded Medicaid coverage or health insurance subsidies through the Marketplace.
