Health Care Reform and Expansion

President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law on March 23, 2010. The ACA will achieve health reform initiatives designed to expand coverage, advance prevention and control costs. California is an early implementer as the first state to pass legislation creating a statewide health benefits exchange and to secure a Section 1115 Medicaid Waiver serving as a bridge to federal health reform. While community stakeholders have started efforts to prepare their systems, coordinated planning and collaboration will be required to transform the local health care safety net around a shared vision.
