Lost in the ACA: Bit Parts in a Landmark Law

I wrote this article for the Journal of Health Policy, Politics and Law for their special edition on the 10th anniversary of the signing of the Affordable Care Act.  You can access the full PDF by clicking here.  You can view the full Table of Contents of the issue by clicking here.  And here’s my abstract:

“The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a mosaic across a spectrum of health policy domains. The law contains hundreds of smaller and mostly unnoticed reforms aimed at nearly every segment of American health policy. Ten years later, these pro-visions include successes, failures, and mixed bags, which should be considered in any full assessment of the ACA. This article examines 11 from each of these 3 categories, drawn from 9 of the ACA’s 10 titles. These mini-narratives deepen recognition that the ACA is our best example of comprehensive health reform and defies simplistic judgments.”
