Abstract: 

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) represents an enormous opportunity to address the health needs of adults at risk for incarceration. This installment of Law and the Public's Health considers the ACA from this perspective. Following an overview of the health of the justice-involved population, the Act's key insurance elements are described, along with their implications for people at risk of incarceration, including the challenge of coordinating coverage reforms with health care during periods of incarceration.
