This chapter examines American mental health services after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Diagnostic characteristics, health insurance coverage, and service use are analyzed for a synthetic sample of 100 adults pre and post ACA. Results document that an increased number of persons with mental illness had insurance coverage and service accessibility post ACA. The availability of service facilities and their use levels also are examined post ACA. A detailed national revenue and expenditure picture for mental health post ACA is derived from the National Health Accounts. Finally, the criminal justice sector is considered as an emerging site for service delivery.

Keywords:   Affordable Care Act, 100 person sample, health insurance coverage, service use, service availability, revenue, expenditure, care sector, criminal justice sector
