Health care reform: 2014 and beyond


While many of the provisions included in the Affordable Care Act, also known as the ACA, apply to all Americans, others are specific to individuals and families, small businesses or large businesses. Additionally, when and how the provisions take effect also can differ based on how health care coverage is purchased.

Below you'll find links to information on reform changes currently in effect, as well as changes that are coming in the weeks and months ahead. We want to help you understand what's changing, when and how it's changing, and what those changes mean for you.
