The Patient Protection and Affordable Care ACT (PPACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010 and was amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act on March 30, 2010. The “Affordable Care Act (ACA)” is used to refer to the final, amended version of the law. The health reform legislation enacted significant changes in how Americans will purchase and utilize health insurance and health care for the next decade. The legislation will affect EVERYONE — individuals and businesses — and has significant impact on how all of us manage our health, our finances and our business.
Gaspar Insurance Services has been following the law closely and has staff ready to answer any and all questions. We are also providing you with the Health Reform: A Guide for Employers. This guide highlights the areas of health reform that most impact employers.
Keep in mind that health reform legislation is complex and many of the specifics are still being worked out so we recommend you contact our dedicated Life and Health Department to speak to one of our licensed insurance agents with any questions and up to date information. Also, keep referring back to our website as we will be posting on a regular basis information and updates on health care legislation.
