Today on Your Call: What are the successes and failures of the Affordable Care Act so far?
On today's Your Call, we’ll follow up on our discussions about health care. More than a million people have now signed up for policies through the federal ACA website. That’s not counting the 14 states with their own exchanges. So, as the new policies go into effect, we’ll look at what’s gone wrong, what’s been fixed, and who has signed up. Are enough people taking part to make the program viable? And is there evidence that the dual goals of expanded coverage and cost containment can be reached? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Holly Kernan and You.
