House Calls: the ACA's anti-discrimination provisions

Afternoon Shift's "House Calls" segment gathers healthcare experts to answer your questions about the Affordable Care Act. Today, we'll focus on how the ACA affects people within specific interest groups who have historically faced discrimination: people with disabilities and the LGBT community. Tom Wilson is Health Care Community Organizer for Access Living, John Peller is vice president of policy at the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Kate Miller is a paralegal and project director for the ACA project at AIDS Legal Council, and is also a certified healthcare navigator. David Elin is State Director at Enroll America, "a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to maximize the number of uninsured Americans who enroll in health coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act."
