The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has brought a fair amount of healthcare access and coverage to the American people. This does not just include those living in urban areas or the suburbs. Recent research suggests that the Affordable Care Act has made a significant impact on improving healthcare coverage among Americans residing in rural regions.

Last week, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) released a report showing that the ACA has made health insurance available to those living in rural areas, according to a press release from HHS.
