   This research paper will focus on the effect of ACA in the U.S. health care system generally and health care providers particularly. The idea of the health insurance will be discussed in a synchronous manner for further future improvement suggestions. The history of health insurance will be handled, as I believe when we understand the roots of the topic, it is always easier to build up higher. The political affiliation impact on Obamacare either republican or democrat, and its effect on the public opinion. The theories of wellbeing, Nyman’s model, supply and demand and the wealth of nations will be applied on the health care system in the U.S. for better understanding of the American target in health care system development. The research paper will try to answer question like is the ACA really helpful? Is it cheap? How much average American should pay more or less? will the providers need to change their way of billing patients? Should insurance companies increase their premiums? This research paper should satisfy the public opinion in accepting Obamacare or rejecting it.
