What’s the difference between Obamacare and my private health plan?

What is the difference between Obamacare and the private health plan I have right now through Blue Cross, Humana, Coventry, United Healthcare, etc.?

Obamacare is not an insurance company or health plan. It is the slang term for the Affordable Care Act. It is the law that all Americans and Health insurance companies must follow. Because of this all private health plans could be considered “Obamacare”. No health plans are exempt. Some however are able to exclude certain parts of the law if self insured or in effect prior to the law taking effect in 2010.
