dc.description.abstractOne of the many goals of the Affordable Care Act is disease prevention. One strategy the ACA employs to promote prevention is the elimination of cost-sharing for preventive services, with the motivation being that reducing this barrier to access will increase the use of these services. This study seeks to determine whether this ACA provision is increasing the utilization of preventive services for those with private insurance. I analyze the receipt of three preventive services – cholesterol screening, blood pressure screening, and flu vaccination before and after the implementation of the ACA. Results of the analysis suggest that for those with private insurance, the receipt of cholesterol screenings and flu vaccinations increased, but there was no effect for blood pressure screenings. The analysis suggests that this provision of the ACA is having the intended effect for some preventive services, but not all.en
