Abstract: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA for short), often referred to as “Obamacare” offers coverage opportunities for individuals who previously may not have had access to health insurance.

- Participants will be able to explain the basic characteristics of the new individual and small group plans and who may be eligible to purchase insurance under the new exchanges.
- Participants will be able to advise patients on how to evaluate their State Health Insurance Marketplace plans as to appropriate coverage for cochlear implantation.
