"ACA Impact Series" Now Available Online
As policymakers battle for the fate of the Affordable Care Act on Capitol Hill, individuals, families, and children find themselves caught in the crossfire. A campaign promise of President Trump, signed on Inauguration Day, sends an ominous signal about 'repeal'- but says little about 'replacement'.
Our new series on the Affordable Care Act's impact reviews many aspects of the important law. We encourage you to watch and learn about the broad impact of the ACA, and then share these videos with a friend!
The Affordable Care Act has given over 20 million people access to health care coverage! Now, high-risk pools and exclusion of coverage based on pre-existing conditions may return. Our series on the Affordable Care Act's impact is linked above--each brief video reviews the many aspects of the law. We encourage you to watch and learn about the broad impact of the ACA- and then share these videos!
