HealthConnections: How Can the ACA Be Improved?

Aug 1, 2017

Last week, Republican lawmakers who had hoped to repeal, in whole or in part, the Affordable Care Act were dealt a setback. None of the four options debated in the U.S. Senate were approved. That means the ACA remains the law of the land.

In this edition of HealthConnections, we outline some options, from lowering prescription drug costs to bolstering coverage options in counties where individual plans are sparse.
