Obamacare is simply a nickname for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (commonly shortened to the Affordable Care Act or ACA), health care reform legislation that was passed under President Obama.
Obamacare in 2020: With President Trump in office and making changes that impact the Affordable Care Act, is this still the law? Is the ACA still nicknamed Obamacare, or do we now have Trumpcare? Yes, it is still called ObamaCare, not Trumpcare. There is no formal law associated with Trumpcare, however, it generally applies to the Trump administration’s moves to dismantle the ACA.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF:
For people that decided not to apply for health insurance, during the enrollment period, it is important to know that once the enrollment period ends you will not be able to get the insurance that covers pre-existing conditions at a later time unless you have a "Special Enrollment/Change of Life Circumstance". The policies that cover pre-existing conditions are the "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Law", also known as ACA and/or ObamaCare.
