Discussion Question – Due Thursday 11/11/21- A reference and citation are required.

The ACA or the AHCA: Imperfect Solutions to Increasing Access to Health Care?This week’s discussion focuses on the federal government’s role in protecting the public’s health using the ACA and current efforts to “repeal and replace” the ACA. Please note that the government’s role in protecting the public’s health did not begin with the ACA. In the late 1800s, Lilian Wald brought health care to the community. And in 1965, Congress passed bills authorizing Medicare and Medicaid. Since 1965, Congress has expanded government-sponsored health care to pregnant women and children.

Discussion Question : MUST ANSWER BOTH QUESTIONS BELOW.

  • Compare the current provisions in the ACA including the four ACA Plans, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze with those in the failed first version of the AHCA. Are the four plans “affordable?”  If not, why?
  • Share your opinions about why the AHCA failed in the first attempt at passage.
