In March of 2010, Congress passed and the President signed into
law comprehensive health care reform legislation. The new law,
called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA),
concluded over a year of intense debate on health care reform.
Contained in that final legislation were many of ACP's key
priorities related to: expansion of health coverage, payment and
delivery system reforms to support primary care, and workforce
improvements that will help ensure that all patients have access to
Since the passage of the ACA last year, much of the attention
has shifted to the states as they take steps to implement the
provisions of the health reform law. Most states have already begun
the process of implementation as numerous guidelines from the
federal agencies have been released over the past year - despite
legal challenges to the constitutionality of the law.
The ACA presents new opportunities and challenges for states in
providing access to health care services for their residents. In
implementing various provisions of the law, states can take
advantage of opportunities to improve quality and reduce costs. In
turn, chapters can influence issues that play-out on the state
level, such as medical liability reform (including caps on damages
and "health courts"), physician reimbursement rates, and public
health issues, to name a few. The challenge for states is how to
implement the ACA at a time when most states are in the midst of a
budget shortfall. As a result of these perceived opportunities and
challenges, state governments will want to seek stakeholders'
feedback on how best to implement the ACA. With this comes the
opportunity for our chapters to try to influence the development of
new health care policies in their state in ways that advance ACP's
priorities and ensure that the needs of physicians and their
patients are met.
