Virginia Organizing has identified access to health care as one of the major issues facing its members and other residents in their communities. We continue to work on improving access to quality, affordable health care for all Virginians.

Over the last two years, we have been part the largest health care campaign in the country, Health Care for America Now. We joined with hundreds of organizations nationwide to fight for affordable, accessible health care for all Americans.

Virginia Organizing strongly supports the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and has made a major commitment to educate the public about its benefits.

The Affordable Care Act, passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, gives Virginians better health security by putting in place comprehensive health insurance reforms that hold insurance companies accountable, lower health care costs, guarantee more choice, and enhance the quality of care for all Americans.

Already, the people of Virginia are seeing the new benefits and protections of the law. We are working to make sure that the law is implemented in a way that will provide care for the uninsured and take into account the needs of health care consumers.
