A Path to Incremental Health Care Reform: Improving Affordability, Expanding Coverage, and Containing Costs

Abstract

Since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) coverage provisions in 2014, health insurance coverage has expanded significantly. As a result, the debate continues over the most attractive next steps. This analysis focuses on improving the current system through incremental steps that would maintain the structure of the ACA but increase insurance coverage, enhance affordability, and contain costs.
