APA Health Reform Matrix: Key Provisions by Priority

This document is a tool used to reference key provisions that are of special interest and benefit to psychology, psychologists, and the public whom we serve. This document does not contain a comprehensive list of all provisions in the health reform law. Provisions are listed in terms of their contribution to advancing APA’s eight health reform priorities (listed in the first column). The middle column lists provisions in the new law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148). The third column lists select APA education and advocacy activities in support of each listed APA priority. This document was created by the American Psychological Association (APA) Public Interest Government Relations Office (PI-GRO), with input from government relations colleagues in the Executive Office across APA Directorates, and APAPO.
