How will Healthcare Reform Affect Children, Families, and Cllinicians?

The United States health care system is in the midst of a major transformation. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and other programs focus on the so-called “triple aims”: 1) improving access to care; 2) improving the patient experience of care; and 3) reducing per capita medical expenditures. The ACA and mental health parity legislation also mean there will be increased insurance coverage for mental health and substance use problems. This is important because estimates indicate that about one in five youths in the U.S. suffers from mental health problems, over half of which go untreated. Hear what these changes mean for children, families, professionals, and health and mental health care programs.
