Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, is a United States federal statute which, at the same time, represents the complete reform of the American health care system conducted by the former president Barack Obama. The main goal of this act was to drive better health outcomes, lower costs, and improve accessibility to health services. The whole system was designed to increase health insurance quality and affordability, lower the uninsured rate by expanding insurance coverage and reduce the costs of healthcare. In March 2017 the Republican Party, which opposed Obamacare, released its plan to replace it.
