Read the policy brief: The Affordable Care Act: What’s Next for Maine?

Major provisions of the Affordable Care Act take effect on January 1, 2014. There is a mandate to have health coverage and new health insurance options for individuals and small businesses, including tax credits to help make coverage affordable. What's in store? Is Maine ready? What policy issues might arise as the law is fully implemented, and how might we address them?
