Affordable Care Act

Non-clinical

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare, is the biggest change in health care policy since Medicare in 1965. Despite its importance, very few understand it. This is not surprising given its complexity. Popular news outlets and politicians (on both sides) capitalize on our ignorance by exaggerating, distorting or misrepresenting pieces of it. As health care providers and citizens, love it or hate it, we have a duty to understand it.

Hats off to Dr. Supurna Dutta. Her grand rounds on the PPACA served as inspiration for portions of these videos.
