ACA

Broadcast date: 1/11/2018

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed comprehensive health reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), into law. Most experts would agree that the ACA has increased the availability of health insurance to the American people, as well as their access to care. When President Obama took office in 2009, more than 50 million Americans were uninsured, or nearly 17 percent of the population. Since the implementation of the ACA, the latest numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau show the nation’s uninsured rate has dropped to 8.8 percent.
