An Overview of Upcoming Affordable Care Act Reforms

December 1, 2013
District Policy Group senior vice president Jeremy Scott authored, “An Overview of Upcoming Affordable Care Act Reforms” in collaboration with Amy Walker, formerly of Drinker Biddle. The article was published in the December 2013/January 2014 issue of ARN Network.

The article summarized the impending changes to the healthcare system as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), most significantly the introduction of the health insurance marketplaces and the expansion of Medicaid. It also considers how the upcoming changes might affect rehabilitation practice, most significantly through the act’s declaration that all plans offered through the exchange must provide 10 “essential health benefits” –one of which is rehabilitative and habilitative services.
