<p>People who are uninsured receive on average only half the health care that people insured all year do. Today, more than 48 million Americans lack health coverage and struggle to get needed care. In a <a href="/blog/2013/new-video-how-affordable-care-act-expands-health-insurance-coverage">new video</a>, Sara Collins, Ph.D., vice president for Affordable Health Insurance at The Commonwealth Fund, explains how the Affordable Care Act will ensure near-universal health coverage for Americans through a series of coverage expansions and reforms. </p><p>This is the fourth video in our series designed to increase understanding of some of the most important changes happening in the U.S. health care system. Earlier videos looked at how the Affordable Care Act will change the way we pay for and deliver health care; how the law will improve care for vulnerable groups; and how it will strengthen primary care. </p>
