Nine years after President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on March 23, 2010, the uninsured rate remains at a historic low and more than 20 million people have gained coverage — but about 30 million non-elderly people are still uninsured.

Two new analyses examine immediate steps that could significantly expand coverage and make individual market plans more affordable. (Future analyses in this series will examine other policies to advance these goals.)
