The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) is an ambitious, complicated but necessary undertaking to transform a fragmented American health care system with over 50 million uninsured people to a well coordinated, high quality, affordable health care system that reaches benefits most Americans. The ACA will increase access to health care especially for poor, low, and moderate income individuals and provide families with opportunities to improve their health outcomes and well-being. In addition, the impact of this legislation on people of color will be largely positive but there are some challenges ahead.
