Abstract

Viewed in its broadest perspective, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) represents two landmark achievements in U.S. health policy: a sweeping reform of the private market for health insurance; and a decisive shift of national resources toward families and individuals who, by virtue of poverty, illness, or both, historically have been barred from health care.
