The American Health and Human Services Department is expected to make its case to the American people about the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, during a speech on Thursday, March 22.
The Department is hosting a forum on the health care law, which President Donald Trump signed in May.

The health care bill would roll back key provisions of the Affordable Act, including the requirement that all Americans buy health insurance or pay a penalty, as well as its requirement that people get health insurance.
Here are some important details about what you should know about the law and what you can do to protect yourself.
