The Fed’s put out a series of pretty simple and easy to read 1-page fact sheets this week that summarize some of the aspects of the Affordable Care Act. There are Fact Sheets for Families with Kids; Health Care Providers; Folks with Disabilities; Seniors; Small Business Owners; and Young Adults. At the bottom of each fact sheet there’s a link to a special ACA website for each of these categories. You might want to share these with your Stakeholders in these categories.
