The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was touted as a bill for the better—legislative CPR that would breath new life into the American healthcare system for the good of all. The new policy is supposed to extend coverage to those previously without it, increase access to coverage, boost competition among payors, and limit restrictions from insurance companies. However, the rollout has been undermined by computer glitches, missed deadlines, underwhelming enrollment, and intense Congressional opposition. So, is healthcare reform working? How is it impacting business and patients? What innovations in the delivery of care can we anticipate?

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) is the players’ union and chief advocate, conducting labor negotiations, ensuring terms are adhered to, negotiating and monitoring retirement and insurance benefits, filing grievances against too-harsh discipline, and enhancing the image of the players.
