Aca Health Insurance Coverage Analysis

Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Coverage Analysis


By: Calvin King

Date: April 16, 2022

The 'Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010 and was designed to reduced the costs that US citizens pay in uncompensated healthcare.

The law requires every American to hold health insurance and it becomes necessary to understand how this mandate has shaped US health policy and impacted Americans since its implementation.

In the following notebook we are going to be performing an impact analysis on a collection of data pertaining to US health insurance coverage after the ACA was signed into law. Afterwards, we'll conclude whether the ACA positively or negatively impacted the US healthcare system.
