The study undertook an analysis of HR 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act, in order to determine the ramifications of the legislation on barriers affecting health care access and utilization for people with disabilities. Eight sections of the entire text were identified through an analysis of keywords and subjected to in-depth analysis. The study examined and discussed the ways in which implementation of the legislation is expected to alleviate financial barriers, address socioeconomic concerns, improve access to providers with expertise and sensitivity to people with disabilities and impact the availability of convenient, reliable and affordable transportation options which a person with a disability may use independently. Though the analysis pointed to specific improvements, clearly more needs to be done before health care is accessible to everyone.
