Health Care Reform

  • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA), was enacted with the goals of increasing the quality and affordability of health insurance, lowering the uninsured rate by expanding Medicaid and private insurance coverage, and reducing the costs of health care for individuals and the government. The ACA and its associated regulations impact colleges and universities as any employer, with specific provisions that address the treatment of student campus employment, and adjunct and part-time employees, as well as provisions governing health insurance plans offered by institutions to their students. ACE has worked on these issues since 2009, advocating for policies that take into account the particular circumstances of campuses.
