Summary

**** The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a healthcare reform law that has fundamentally changed the United States healthcare system. The law was enacted in 2010 to increase the accessibility and affordability of quality health insurance in the United States. This report will provide a policy brief on the ACA and discuss its achievements and shortcomings. While the ACA has expanded access to affordable care and reduced health inequities, there are significant economic inequalities and disparities that continue to impact healthcare access. This paper will contain the context and importance of the ACA, an analysis of policy options, and policy recommendations to address the persistent issues within the US healthcare system.
