IAmA RAND analyst who studies the impact of the Affordable Care Act (AKA "Obamacare") on people, businesses, and governments. Ask me anything.
Good morning, Reddit.
I'm Carter Price, a researcher at the RAND Corporation.* Much of my recent work has centered around the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (AKA "Obamacare")—including the state health insurance exchanges that officially open today—and their effects on the United States.
I'll be here for the next hour or so to answer your questions.
- The RAND Corporation is a nonprofit institution that helps improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis. RAND is nonpartisan and does not have an official position on the ACA.
