Southeast Asian American Elders & the Affordable Care Act
By: Diverse Elders

Signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) will expand access, increase consumer protections, and improve health care quality. Its passage will greatly affect the Southeast Asian American (SEAA) community, and in particular, its elder population. As the country moves forward in implementing the ACA, it is important to highlight some important parts of reform and the potential impact it will have on Southeast Asian American elders ages 55 and older.
