The Affordable Care Act - What Now?
After the collapse of the Republican’s effort to repeal it, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains the governing structure of health insurance in the United States. What is the future of the ACA?
Join us to learn about the future with two experts in healthcare policy who will discuss the successes and limitations of the ACA, identify the opportunities and challenges to strengthen it, describe actions the Trump administration may take to weaken it, and assess the options that California could take, including the creation of a single payer system.
