On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA ) into law. PPACA made several reforms to the nation’s health care system, and contains numerous provisions that will improve access to affordable health care and provide coverage for many essential services needed by AA and NHPI survivors of violence. While PPACA expands access to care for survivors of domestic violence, barriers to care remain. As the law moves into the implementation phase, there are numerous opportunities for advocacy by providers serving these communities.
