HHS Releases Report on ACA’s Lifetime Limit Provision

Twenty-eight million children no longer have to face lifetime caps imposed on their health insurance benefits thanks to the Affordable Care Act, according to an issue brief released this week by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Our research has shown that lifetime caps on insurance benefits are a major concern for families with children and youth with special health care needs. 

To see how the ACA is helping children and families in your state, you can find the report on lifetime limits here or view additional state data here.
