The Affordable Care Act Turns 10 Years Old: Where to From Here?

Happy Birthday, ACA! Ten years ago, on March 23, 2010, the ACA was signed into law. Adding an unprecedented level of consumer protections and minimum quality standards to the health insurance Americans use, the law was and remains controversial to this day. In fact, the rate of uninsured nonelderly Americans dropped from a high of 17.8% in 2010, to 10.0% in 2016. The cancelation of the individual mandate, among other factors, has started to reverse that trend, with increases in the uninsured rates in 2017 and 2018. As the ACA celebrates its tenth birthday, it has something else to celebrate: its highest approval rate since public opinion polls began tracking it: 55% favorable opinion vs. just 37% unfavorable opinion.

As an HR professional, always busy with a hundred other people priorities at your company, it is hard to keep up with the ever-changing laws in the health insurance industry, and specifically, the ACA. With the law predicted to head to the Supreme Court soon for the third review of its fundamental constitutionality, receiving real-time updates becomes even more important. See what has changed in the ACA, looking at where it started to where it is now in this webinar!
