Authors: Manderscheid R
The author begins by reviewing the five key intended actions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)-insurance reform, coverage reform, quality reform, performance reform, and Information Technology (IT) reform. This framework provides a basis for examining how populations served and service programs will change at the county and city levels as a result of the ACA, and how provider staff also will change over time as a result of these developments. The author concludes by outlining immediate next steps for county and city programs.
