    Federal Heath Care Reform: Update and What is Yet to Come

    Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590) was enacted on 3/23/10, and its companion bill, the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (H.R. 4872) was enacted on 3/30/10.  Together, these two bills constitute the new “Federal Health Care Reform Law” or now commonly referred to collectively as the Affordable Care Act (ACA).   This session will highlight the four key interrelated components: 

    • Market reform affecting plan design or administration

    • Individual responsibility provisions

    • Employer responsibility provisions
    • Revenue raisers and other provisions

     This session will focus on the near term impact since there was a flurry of releases from HHS at the end of 2010.   The majority of the presentation will focus on key issues for the future.
