National Partnership for Women & Families

Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the law of the land. It's the greatest advance for women’s health in a generation, and the National Partnership fought hard for its passage. Now, we are defending against attacks on the ACA and working to ensure it continues to expand access to higher quality, better coordinated, lower cost care for patients and families.

Note: Starting on November 1, 2017, you can sign up for affordable coverage at You must sign up by December 15, 2017 if you want coverage in 2018. Learn more – and help spread the word – here.

The fact sheets and reports in this section summarize various aspects of the ACA, how it is helping women and families, and what is at risk in attempts to repeal or undermine the law.
