The Affordable Care Act (ACA)

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been the subject of much debate since prior to its conception. As a healthcare leader, the ACA will impact your organization in many ways.


Choose a healthcare organization. This can be your current organization, one you would like to lead, or a fictitious organization. You will assume the role of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and be largely responsible for aspects concerning fair and equitable delivery of care.

Be sure to discuss the following:

  1. What are some specific policies that will need to be developed to ensure fair and equitable patient care?
  2. How will the change in volume of Medicaid patients (if your state expanded the program or not) be addressed?
  3. Discuss at least three positive and negative impacts of the ACA that must be considered.

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings as well as the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
