Health care reform has had a major impact on our local community, AHCF is diligently working to understand how the health care reform will impact our patients care and coverage. The AHCF is striving to formulate a strategy that enables us to continue serving the uninsured and under-insured populations.
When the major access provisions of health reform are implemented in 2014, It has been estimated that more than 20 million people will remain uninsured. We will need to understand the populations that remain uninsured in order to design the AHCF care and coverage program. The program will specifically address the population left without access to health care after reform is implemented. The AHCF will continue to fight the complacency about the uninsured and programs that serve them. The bottom line is that the need for the AHCF care and coverage programs will not only continue but will be critical for our community.
