Health-Care Reform and Immigrant Families
The landmark health-care reforms delineated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) and Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-152), also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), focus on alleviating the disparities in access to and quality of health-care services for vulnerable and underserved U.S. populations. The Technical Assistance Partnership for Child and Family Mental Health (TA Partnership) published an issue brief that addresses how the ACA's provisions impact specific health-care issues faced by immigrant children, youth, and families in the United States.
