The Affordable Care Act: Affording Two-Generation Approaches to Health
Written in partnership with the Aspen Institute, the publication offers the first comprehensive look at the opportunities in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to drive better outcomes for children and parents together. Using a two-generation lens, it explores both the possibilities and the gaps in the legislation and outlines its impacts across race, gender, and age. The publication highlights the openings provided through the ACA and Medicaid expansion to connect a vital health delivery system and economic stability and security.
The ACA redefines how health insurance functions, significantly expands health insurance coverage, and accelerates changes already underway in how health care services are organized and delivered to patients.
