What National Health Reform Means for Treatment Courts
The health care system in this country is currently in a period of tremendous change. Just over a year and half remains before the major provisions of the Affordable Care Act are scheduled to take effect, including historic expansions of coverage for substance use disorder services. These changes will have significant implications for the addiction treatment system, including for drug courts, and it is important for drug courts to be prepared for the opportunities and challenges presented by health reform. This presentation will give an overview of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for drug courts, including federal developments related to addiction treatment, the critical role of states to shape key components of the law, delivery system reforms, and opportunities available for improving health policy moving forward.
