This talk will highlight key policy changes under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) that have the potential to improve adolescent and young adult health. It examines how the ACA has changed their access and utilization of health services and highlights significant challenges that need to be addressed in order to advance the health of this special population.
