The major provisions of the Affordable Care Act that increase access to private and public health insurance will occur in 2014. At this event, Vivian Ho, Ph.D., who leads the Health Policy Forum, will discuss the latest research from around the country on how rates of health insurance coverage are expected to change and how much health insurance premiums will increase.
