Practice PerspectivesSince the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted, remarkable gains have been made in the number of people in the United States with health insurance coverage. The ACA has encouraged the development of new health care models, greater access to behavioral health and medical services, and more consistent access to health care for vulnerable populations than ever before. Awareness of these trends can enhance the critical role that social workers serve in connecting clients to appropriate health care resources and increasing health literacy.
