It's the Affordable Care Act - otherwise known as "Obamacare".
And the first stage starts Tuesday, as marketplaces known as "exchanges" will allow open enrollment online to buy health insurance.
There's a lot that's not known yet, says Dr. Pennie Marchetti with the Summit County Medical Society.
But Dr. Marchetti says the marketplaces will help those without insurance find an option.
"It will offer an opportunity for people who have no insurance right now," Dr. Marchetti tells AkronNewsNow.com. "It's very difficult to buy insurance on your own, but at least this will allow people to compare prices across about 12 different providers in Ohio."
She says it'll benefit lower income people looking to get insurance.
"I think it does make insurance affordable for lower income people, and it makes insurance easier to purchase," she says.
But Dr. Marchetti says for those who earn more than 400 percent of the poverty level, and who buy their own insurance, they may see rising costs.
"I think that's the big drawback," Dr. Marchetti says, "for a lot of people, there may be some 'sticker shock' if they have to purchase their own health insurance for the first time."
Those who do have health insurance can stay with their current plans.
The Better Business Bureau is warning the Akron community about a possible scam associated with Obamacare.
According to the BBB, consumers across the country are reporting calls that claim to be from the government asking for personal information for new health insurance cards.
Christy Page, President and CEO of the Akron BBB tells AkronNewsNow, "There is not an insurance card being issued by the government."
Page says the best thing you can do is just, "Hang up when you get calls like that. Don't press any buttons and if they left you a message, don't even bother to return the call."
"People are familiar that it's happening but they don't know all the details and often have a lot of questions so it sounds legitimate that maybe there might be an insurance card" says Page.
If you've been tricked into dishing out your personal information over the phone to a suspicious character, Page says not to panic, there are steps you can take to prevent any serious repercussions.
Page says "I would encourage people to call their bank and their credit card companies to let them know what happened. The sooner you let them know, they can put a fraud alert on your account and hopefully reimburse or limit any losses that may be happening to your account."
