This Short Paper examines provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) that address health disparities for particular communities and identifies areas where further development is needed to address disparities.
Our discussion focuses on some of those provisions addressing data collection, prevention of chronic illnesses, workforce development, and quality improvements. As the paper will note, although these provisions offer a blueprint for improving the health status of underserved people; unfortunately, the ACA does not guarantee that funding will be available to ensure adequate implementation.
