The Affordable Care Act: Is it Working in New Jersey?

The Affordable Care Act: Is it Working in New Jersey?

A Frank Assessment of the First Year of “Obamacare”

The Affordable Care Act in New Jersey

The ACA may be the most significant policy legacy of the Obama presidency. What can we tell about its impact after the first year of implementation in the Garden State and nationally? Did the reforms go too far or not far enough? What has been the impact on the front lines of health care services? What will be the impact of pending court cases, especially in states like New Jersey which do not have their own exchanges?

Join us for a frank discussion of the Affordable Care Act in New Jersey with respected policymakers and front-line health care providers. The forum will include an opportunity for audience Q&A.
