The Affordable Care Act: 18 Months Later

Sep 26, 2011

September 23 marked the 18 – month anniversary since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). New census numbers showed 500,000 more young adults have insurance than last year because of the ACA provision that lets parents keep their children on their plans until they are 26 years old. In addition, 18.9 million seniors have already taken advantage of the free preventive care services provided by the ACA. NASW is pleased that the ACA is working and getting more Americans covered.
