Clearly, the debate over health care policy is not over. Alyne Ellis, host of AARP's Prime Time Focus, has put together a comprehensive look at the issues of the Act. In it you will hear about many of the provisions that are already working, and the timetable for future elements that will take shape in 2014. You'll hear from policy people and regular people as they look at what the Affordable Care Act has done and will do as it grows into maturity.
