The Affordable Care Act: Affording Two-Generation Approaches to Health

September 18, 2014

Please join the Aspen Institute and the National Academy for State Health Policy for the release of “The Affordable Care Act: Affording Two-Generation Approaches to Health.” This publication is the first comprehensive look at the opportunities around the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion to drive better outcomes for children and parents together.

The Affordable Care Act is the biggest new lever for expanding access to care. It redefines how health insurance functions, significantly expands health insurance coverage, and accelerates changes already underway in how health care services are organized and delivered to patients. Through the publication, we explore what this means for two-generation outcomes that meet the needs of the children, parents, and families.
