Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed in 2010 and upheld by the Supreme Court in 2012, many of its implementing regulations are still being promulgated, and parts of it continue to be attacked. On this webinar, Ms. Dhillon will provide a detailed look at what the Supreme Court decision did and did not do, and describe ongoing lawsuits challenging it. Dr. Polan will provide a broad overview of what the election means for the ACA at the federal level and describe some of the ACA’s initiatives that impact public health. Ms. Briggs will provide a more “on the ground” look at how the ACA is being implemented at the state and local level, as well as suggestions for actions health departments can take in light of its passage and the current political environment.
