In June 2012, the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, but made the law’s Medicaid expansion effectively optional for states. One year later – just months ahead of the ACA’s planned coverage expansions – experts from the National Health Law Program (NHeLP) offer an update on states’ decisions regarding Medicaid expansion and health insurance exchanges and discuss the implications for public health. NHeLP experts will also discuss the current challenges to other parts of the ACA, including the requirement that most health plans cover contraceptive services and supplies, and briefly discuss implementation of other ACA provisions regarding public health. This webinar is intended to answer questions the public health community may have about these important but complex implementation issues.

Presenters:
