Want to read up on the ACA ahead of time?

  • Your library’s catalog offers you Affordable Care Act for Dummies — the authors are the AARP’s experts on the ACA who work to educate the public about it. (It’s an e-book – you can read it right now!)
  • Review Articles: Get some quick background by going to PubMed (remember to go through the library’s site so that you can get to full-text articles), and entering the phrase “affordable care act” in the TITLE. On the left, choose REVIEW and LATEST 5 YEARS, and you’ll have a list of recent articles with overviews about the ACA.
  • Read the Law: The full text of the law itself can be found in several places, such as here on the Department of Health and Human Services website and here on the Congress’s site.

I’ll see you at this exciting event, where there will be plenty of time to talk with the panelists.
