Program: Affordable Care Act Update
Speaker: Steve Rivera
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was signed into law in 2010. A number of elements went into effect then, but the mandate for everyone to have health insurance didn't begin until Jan 1, 2014. We have all heard of the website problems, but how is the program actually progressing? Steve Rivera will provide an update on the ACA implementation status and compare California's implementation with other states.
