Hooray for the ACA!
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, which the U.S. Supreme Court upheld on June 28, 2012, means peace of mind for thousands of Alabamians, and thousands more will gain health security as the law's remaining protections take effect through 2014. The resources below describe how the ACA works, how Alabama is addressing health care reform, what lies ahead and the heated debate that shaped this historic law.
