Floridians For Obamacare: Preventive Care

From Florida CHAIN (Community Health Action Information Network), fourth in series of 30-second TV Ads – “People Are Talking About Obamacare”. In this ad, the talk is about how the Affordable Care Act “saves thousands of lives and millions of dollars”, as one of seniors in the ad puts it, with its many new preventive care programs and benefits. Study after study on health reform and the new law that has come to be known as Obamacare show that every dollar spent on preventive care saves many more dollars on the costliest health care of all – caring for people with serious and sometimes terminal illnesses. When detected early enough, Heart Disease, Diabetes and even many types of Cancer can be effectively treated. If left undetected and untreated, these illnesses not only take lives, but cost far, far more to treat at their more advanced stages. Obamacare has removed the cost burden from getting health screenings for these and other diseases and conditions, introducing free screenings and free annual wellness visits. This health care reform legislation truly is saving thousands of lives, and millions of dollars.
