New ACP paper offers recommendations to strengthen the Affordable Care Act

Recommendations of the paper published in Annals of Internal Medicine include stabilizing the health insurance market, expanding Medicaid, increasing competition in the marketplace, and amplifying awareness about how the ACA works.


“Improving the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) Insurance Coverage Provisions,” a new paper published on April 16 in Annals of Internal Medicine, explores common-sense approaches to improve the ACA as internists continue to advocate for universal health care for all patients and consumers. Recommendations include stabilizing the health insurance market, expanding Medicaid, increasing competition in the marketplace, and amplifying awareness about how the ACA works to help patients and how to enroll in coverage plans.
