The Affordable Care Act

  • How the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Drove Down Personal Bankruptcy Consumer Reports by Allen St. John—Since the ACA's adoption, far fewer Americans have taken the extreme step of filing for personal bankruptcy. Filings have dropped about 50 percent, from 1,536,799 in 2010 to 770,846 in 2016.

The findings could assuage concerns about how access to doctors was affected under the ACA. They suggest that having more insured people in a geographical area does not make it more difficult for others in the same area to access preventative care and specialists.
