How Does the Affordable Care Act Affect Me?
posted on: 04/23/2014
There are a number of provisions under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that will soon go into effect. A mandate requiring that all legal U.S. residents obtain health insurance coverage begins Jan. 1, 2014, for example, and a mandate that large employers provide health insurance to their employees begins in 2015.
There are many facets to the Affordable Care Act, including health insurance exchanges, Medicaid expansion and provisions for employers. To help address some of the questions you have related to the recent health care reform changes, these topics are discussed in our Health Reform and You section.
