The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has eliminated lifetime limits on health benefits for more than 105 million Americans, according to a new report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Prior to the law’s prohibition of lifetime dollar limits on essential health benefits, some plans already provided coverage without such caps. However, HHS
estimated that 70 million people in large employer plans, 25 million in small employer plans, and 10 million in individual policies faced lifetime limits that have now been lifted under the law. 03.07.2012.
