On November 14, the White House released a new public service announcement on how the Affordable Care Act helps people with disabilities. It explains how individuals with disabilities can no longer be denied health coverage because of their health history. The public service announcement's release coincided with open enrollment, which began on November 15, 2014 and ends on February 15, 2015. This time period will be a chance for individuals already enrolled in healthcare to re-enroll and for individuals not yet enrolled to sign up to begin receiving healthcare by visiting http://www.healthcare.gov/
