"There are two Affordable Care Acts. There's the legislation passed by Congress in 2009, and then there's the mythical Affordable Care Act – the perfidious 'government takeover' decried and demagogued by so many conservatives (and quite a few liberals). The former is quite popular, the latter gets decidedly mixed reviews."
Health Care Cost and Utilization Report: 2011
"The Health Care Cost Institute's (HCCI) Health Care Cost and Utilization Report: 2011 tracks changes in health care prices, utilization, and spending on people younger than 65 covered by employer-sponsored private health insurance (ESI).
This report extends HCCI's reporting of cost and utilization. HCCI now has claims for approximately 40 million people covered by ESI compared to 33 million in our 2010 report. In this report, HCCI performed completion, a process by which actuaries estimate metrics for claims that were incomplete for 2010 or 2011. ... These new data and enhanced methodology resulted in changes to our original 2010 estimates. Therefore, the figures presented in the Health Care Cost and Utilization Report: 2010 have been superseded by this report."
