Understanding Health Care Reform: Changes Impacting Employer-Sponsored Plans
March 30, 2010
The landmark health care reform legislation signed into law on March 23, 2010 and the reconciliation bill that President Obama signed today, contain a number of important provisions for employer-sponsored health plans that will take effect over the next several years. The following PDF outlines the timeline for those changes as introduced by these two pieces of legislation, formally known as The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010. We anticipate that the Internal Revenue Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other agencies will provide further details and guidance on these measures in the coming months. We will provide additional information in the near future regarding other important changes, and in particular, new measures impacting plans providing health benefits to retirees.
