Health Care Reform

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), officially called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and often referred to as Health Care Reform, was enacted in March 2010, with the overall intention of having consumers take charge of their health care. The ACA brings significant changes to our health care system by implementing reforms designed to expand health care coverage; control health care costs; and improve how health care services are delivered.

The ACA significantly changes the landscape of health care in the US, and has a number of requirements that apply to employer-sponsored group health plans. Some requirements, such as the employer mandate and the annual information reporting requirements are already in effect; and others, such as the excise tax on high cost employer-sponsored coverage, also known as the Cadillac Tax, go into effect over the next few years.
