Health Reform

In March 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or collectively referred to as the “Affordable Care Act” (ACA), into law. The ACA considerably changes the American health care system. Debates about the best ways to improve health care now focus on implementation of the law and its effect on health care.

The ACA will continue to have significant impacts on patients, providers, and employers as provisions are implemented. This guide provides selected resources which examine these impacts from the perspective of rural health care.
