Topic: Health Care Reform
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) broadened health insurance coverage through private market reforms and expansion of Medicaid eligibility. ACA is also exploring changes in health care delivery to reduce health care costs and improve the quality of care. Starting places to learn about ACA include HealthCare.Gov (the consumer portal for coverage options), HRSA/HAB's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and the Evolving Healthcare Landscape.
See the subtopic pages on resources dealing with billing, reimbursement, contracting, enrolling individuals in health plans and agency readiness.
