The much-debated health care law was designed to improve access to health insurance for millions of uninsured Americans and to address the persistent problem of rising health insurance costs. This event will feature national experts sharing their insights about the ACA's accomplishments and challenges over the past decade and the future of the ACA in 2020 and beyond.
This event is open to the public, however seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
