How does the Affordable Care Act change the issues of access for the U.S. and for Washingtonians? Who is going to treat the 32 million new patients covered nationally and 1 million new patients covered in Washington? What reforms are needed to make Medicare and Medicaid sustainable for future generations? Why do we have a shortage of general practitioners and nurses? How can insured populations access their full benefits? What are the disparities in access to care among minority and immigrant populations?
