Abstract

Implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) led to historic gains in health insurance coverage for millions of Americans. In the first 3 years after the implementation of the ACA, 18.5 million Americans gained coverage, including 4.9 million Latino, 2.7 million Black, 9.2 million White, and 1.8 million “other race” individuals. The ACA has led to narrowing of racial/ethnic disparities in coverage, but disparities remain. Hispanics continue to have the lowest rates of insurance coverage, while Whites and Asians have the highest rates.
