Here is what my assignment is about:
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a critical component to how health care is delivered and understood in the US today. You will choose a state from a list prepared by me and analyze implementation of the ACA in that state, including its adoption of federal programs and its innovation at the state level.
1) Conduct research on ACA implementation in one state
2) Conduct research and report on the overall health and health care of that state, including how the ACA has, has not, or could impact populations in the most need
3) Identify action steps for state officials to take for further implementation
This assignment will help you translate concepts from the first half of the course into a concise brief detailing how health care reform has actually worked in a state.
