Insurance Coverage Under the ACA: Looking Back and Peering Ahead

October 17, 2018, 5:30pm - 7:00pm

A core goal of the Affordable Care Act was to expand insurance coverage in the United States. In his talk, Professor Mahoney will examine the evolution of insurance coverage under this influential and controversial law. He will start by providing a refresher on the ACA’s insurance coverage provisions, then provide a review of what has actually happened under the law, and conclude by discussing issues (and non-issues) moving forward. Throughout, he will point out facts and features of the law that have been missed by the media—on both the right and the left—and are key to understanding the ACA.
