The introduction to this multi-author volume describes the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, particularly Medicare expansion and the individual mandate. It describes the controversy over the statute and the outcome of the case NFIB v. Sebelius, which the United States Supreme Court took up in 2012 to address the question of whether the individual mandate violated Article I of the Constitution and whether the Medicaid expansion impermissibly coerced the states. A joint conference of the University of Chicago Law School and Medical School on health reform was convened to discuss the case, and the papers presented there form this book. The chapter outlines the five sections of the book and gives a brief synopsis of every chapter.

Keywords:   Affordable Care Act, ACA, health care policy, Supreme Court jurisprudence, individual mandate, Medicare expansion
