Health Care Reform Timeline

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the health care reform bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This legislation, along with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, makes sweeping changes to the U.S. health care system. These changes will be implemented over the next several years.  

This page provides a timeline of the implementation of key reform provisions that affect employers and individuals. Please read below for more information and contact General Insurance Services, Inc. with any questions about how you can prepare for any of the health care reform requirements.
