Affordable Care Act

Overview

Our Vision for U.S. Health Care — A Vision from Values

CHA and the Catholic health ministry have been working for decades on behalf of health reform that protects life and expands coverage to the greatest possible number of people in our country. In 2010, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law. While not perfect, it represents a good start toward providing access to everyone.

CHA continues to be actively engaged in health reform implementation as regulations are drafted to put the law into effect, and with efforts to enroll those newly eligible for health insurance. As this process unfolds, additional resources will be made available to help CHA members and others understand the Affordable Care Act and its implications.

CHA Open Enrollment Summary Report

As the Affordable Care Act continues to be implemented and millions of uninsured people obtain affordable health insurance coverage, CHA has prepared a report summarizing the successful open enrollment period that concluded earlier this year. The report provides statistics and findings on enrollment and outreach, as well as a brief questionnaire to help health systems and hospitals identify gaps that still need to be filled and challenges yet to address. With the next open enrollment period set to begin in November, CHA's report may be helpful in planning grassroots and partnership activities that can further boost enrollment numbers.
