Dispelling Myths for Older Adults/Boomers around the Affordable Care Act Part 2
From Jeff Layne
Faculty, CSU, Chico Department of Health and Community Services
Professor Salinas has been studying health care reform to the extent that he has read the entire 900-page Affordable Care Act (ACA) and has been keeping up with it as new developments take shape. In this presentation, he discusses the historical path to the ACA and compares the current costs and quality of health care in the United States to that in other industrialized countries. He then lists some of the components of the ACA, including reduction of expenditures, sharing of risk, shifting incentives, and preventive care requirements.
