Affordable Care Act

health care reform

The passage of the H.R.3590 - Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or more popularly known as the Healthcare Reform bill (HCR) is expected to produce a seismic shift in the delivery of alcohol and drug prevention, treatment and recovery services in the State of California. It is anticipated that HCR will result in (among other things) modifications in how services will be funded, the type of services delivered, the venues where they are delivered, the individuals who will receive the services, the work force that delivers the services, how services are measured, and how service benefits are evaluated. When the major impact of HCR occurs in 2014 and an additional 3-5 million Californians have health insurance, a substantially different service system will provide alcohol and other drug (AOD) care (prevention, treatment and recovery services).
