What is the Americans with Disabilities Act?

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is the most comprehensive law ever passed to protect the civil rights of individuals with disabilities. The ADA will enable people with disabilities to participate more fully in their communities, compete more effectively for jobs, travel more easily in their hometowns and across the nation, and gain more complete access to the goods and services that most Americans take for granted. United Spinal Association is proud to have played a role in the passage of this landmark law.

How Health Care Reform is Helping America’s Nurses 
and Keeping their Patients Healthier

Nurses know better than anyone why health insurance reform was so desperately needed. They see 
firsthand the heartbreaking consequences when insurance companies defer treatment or deny coverage. 
They know that insurance premiums and prescriptions can consume a family’s entire budget. Every day 
they interact with patients who couldn’t afford to see a doctor and had to go to the emergency room for 
something as simple as a sore throat.

President Obama knows nurses play an essential role in our health care system, and thanks to the new 
health care law, nurses are gaining new tools and resources to help them help their patients. Here are just 
a few of the ways health reform is helping make nurses’ jobs easier and their patients healthier:

• The new health care law takes power away from insurance companies and gives it back to doctors, 
nurses and other health professionals. It is ending the worst insurance company abuses, like refusing 
to cover people with preexisting conditions, placing annual and lifetime caps on families’ coverage and 
canceling people’s insurance when they get sick and need it the most. That way, Americans can make 
health decisions based on what their doctors and nurses are telling them—not what their insurance 
company says it’ll pay for.

• Thanks to the new health care law, nurses won’t have to watch their patients skip or postpone important 
check-ups—such as immunizations and health screenings like mammograms or colonoscopies—because 
they cost too much. That’s because insurance companies will have to cover the cost of the preventive 
services recommended by experts—and patients won’t have to pay anything out of pocket. This lets 
nurses do their job of keeping people healthy, instead of treating them only when it’s too late—when 
they’re sick or their condition gets worse.

• The new health care law helps fix America’s critical nursing shortage by attracting more students to 
nursing. College students’ federal loans will be forgiven after ten years if they make their payments and 
decide to pursue nursing as career. Nursing schools are getting help to promote career advancement 
within the field, and students who decide to teach nursing can get some of their loans forgiven too. 
There are also new incentives for nurses to enter primary care, which by 2016 will help more than 
12,000 more Americans become primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. 

• The new health care law brings more primary care to underserved communities, including rural and 
urban neighborhoods. It’s helping build new community health centers and expanding preventive and 
primary health care at existing centers. That means health centers in these underserved communities 
can serve nearly twice as many patients.

• Thanks to the new law, nurses will get to spend more time focusing on patients and less time worrying 
about paperwork. The new law simplifies insurance company paperwork and encourages the use of 
electronic medical records.
