Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA): Resources for Frequently Asked Questions [September 28, 2017]   [open pdf - 775KB]

"The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA; P.L. 111-148, as amended) has numerous provisions affecting private health insurance and public health coverage programs. This report provides resources to help congressional staff respond to constituents' frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the law. The report lists selected resources regarding consumers, employers, and other stakeholders, with a focus on federal sources. It also lists Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports that summarize the ACA's provisions. The report begins with links to contacts for constituents' specific questions on insurance coverage (such as state insurance departments and the U.S. Department of Labor's consumer hotline for questions on employer-based coverage) as well as contacts for questions about HealthCare.gov and ACA tax provisions. The report also lists sources for congressional staff to contact federal agencies with ACA questions."
