Healthcare Reform Timeline



The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010, and the related Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (HCERA), which modifies certain provisions of PPACA, was signed into law on March 30, 2010.

These two laws together, commonly referred to as the "Affordable Care Act," make sweeping changes to existing laws governing employer-sponsored group health plans, individual health coverage, and governmental health programs.

These reforms of our Healthcare system under the Affordable Care Act will change the way care is financed, delivered and regulated. Pacific Coast Benefits is committed to helping our clients understand the law and how it will affect them for years to come. This website has been designed to help our customers understand the new law and its impact on the business, their employees, and the way in which they offer benefits.
