Affordable Care Act
The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in March 2010 fundamentally altered the landscape for family planning service providers. The law will expand health care coverage to 32 million people through both commercial and public health coverage by 2014 and change how patients access care in the public health safety net. NFPRHA is working to ensure that quality family planning care continues to be accessible to the millions of women and men who need care.
Information about the impact that the ACA will have on federally funded family planning providers is available throughout the NFPRHA website and by following the links below.
