The Commonwealth Fund reports that the  number of Americans who delayed needed medical care fell substantially last year,  information that suggests that the Affordable Care Act might be substantially improving  access to healthcare.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune said the fund reported that “from 2012 to 2014, the share of consumers delaying a recommended test or treatment or not filling a prescription fell by nearly a third. And the percentage who reported problems with medical bills fell by almost a quarter,” the first such declines recorded by the fund.
