In Valley, Affordable Care Act called a blessing or a nightmare

The Affordable Care Act gets mixed reviews after its first year in the central San Joaquin Valley.

Many consumers say it’s a blessing to have insurance for the first time.

Others say it’s been a nightmare to find doctors willing to accept the new insurance plans.

There’s little doubt, however, about the effect of the law on the Valley, where about one in five people had no health insurance prior to the federal act.
