Dear Valued Broker:
As part of our ongoing commitment to helping you understand the changing landscape of health care coverage, we are sending a series of communications on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The communication series will focus on the key milestones, components, facts and provisions of health care reform. The first in the series focuses on the timeline of the PPACA and the anticipated impact of the 2010 changes.
The PPACA will expand the availability of health care coverage to millions of Americans. While some of the measures of the PPACA will be implemented this year, many do not take effect until 2014 and some extend out to 2020. We have created a high-level overview of the timeline to showcase key milestones of the measures. It is important to note that many of these reforms and their effective dates are subject to the rules and regulations process both at the state and federal levels — which could alter the intended timing of implementation.
How the 2010 changes may impact you
We are now focused on helping all of our constituents navigate through the changing health care landscape and prepare for the future. We have developed a piece to describe of some of the 2010 changes and their anticipated impact.
We hope this is helpful information pertaining to health care reform and its impact. Our next topic in the series will profile impacted benefits.
