pdf Three Years of the Affordable Care Act Counting the Benefits Countdown to Coverage

In the three and a half years since the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, the law has seen dozens of legislative challenges; judicial challenges leading all the way up to the Supreme Court; and political challenges, including a presidential campaign between two candidates with starkly different positions on whether to move forward with reform. But the Affordable Care Act survived it all. These high profile fights have obscured the real work of implementing the law to ensure consumers and the health care system reap the full benefits of the law, especially in California. In fact, millions are already taking advantage of new benefits and consumer protections, and more options are forthcoming with full implementation in 2014.
