The Montgomery County, Ohio Board of County Commissioners has appointed an Affordable Care Act (ACA) Task Force to prepare the community for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and its impacts on the human services safety net in Montgomery County.  The work will have a primary focus on the most vulnerable citizens in need of appropriate health care.  The first meeting of the Task Force was held on Wednesday, April 24, 2013.
