Slide notes:The ACA also expands health insurance by providing subsidies for small businesses and by requiring larger companies with more than 50 employees to provide health insurance. It also closes the so-called Medicare donut hole, resulting in reduced prescription prices for seniors. In order to bring everyone into the health insurance pool, the ACA has an individual mandate that requires all who are eligible to either acquire health insurance or pay a fine.
