The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law March 23, 2010. The transformative health care legislation was multi-faceted, but its primary purpose was to reduce the number of uninsured Americans. In alignment with the SOA’s Strategic Plan objective to “inform the public’s understanding of key societal issues,” this report examines the various publications reporting on the uninsured rate which stakeholders frequently access to measure policy efficacy and inform future policy considerations.
