Health Care Reform

The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) on March 23, 2010 introduced us to important changes that will affect our nation’s healthcare system. Due to its complexity, PPACA is still being interpreted and will continue to evolve as state and federal agencies (Department of Labor, Health & Human Services, Internal Revenue Service, etc.) establish the details. In an effort to stay abreast of this sweeping legislation, we feel it is important to provide you with resources to assist you in understanding these changes.
