Infographic: ACA’s Impact on Primary Care Practitioners

November 27th, 2015 by Melanie Matthews

Most primary care practitioners are reporting no change in their ability to provide quality care after the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) major coverage provisions took effect in January 2014, according to a new Visualizing Health Policy infographic. Their opinions about the healthcare law are sharply divided along political party lines. Generally, primary care physicians have a more negative view of health reform’s effect on the cost of patient care, but a more positive view of the law’s impact on patient access to healthcare and insurance.

The infographic looks at the number of primary care clinicians who say they’re seeing more newly insured patients or patients covered by Medicaid since the ACA’s major coverage provisions took effect in January 2014.

Dual-Eligibles Demos: Early Results and Their Implications also includes a case study of the nation’s largest CMS-backed duals demo in California—one that has many insurers participating, including national for-profit firms, large local non-profits and smaller plans.
