After passage of the Affordable Care Act, we have spent years trying to recenter the national health care movement. Families across this nation continue to struggle with poor health outcomes and health care costs that are limiting their opportunity to economically thrive. At the same time, COVID has shone a new light on how unequal the ability to be healthy is in our nation and how systemic racism and geographic disparities drive health inequities. More than a decade after passage of the ACA, a new imperative has emerged as central to moving the health of our nation forward - a serious, consumer driven movement to hold the health care sector accountable for costs and quality - a value imperative.
