Non-Partisan Information on U.S. Health Reform
As many readers are undoubtedly already aware, last week, in a 5-4 decision, the United States Supreme Court upheld the majority of the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Based on information from the Digestive Disease National Coalition (DDNC), IFFGD has posted a brief, understandable summary of the law. This includes a timeline of parts of the law that are already in effect, those that have been put on hold by the current administration or struck down by the Supreme Court, and those that will be coming in to effect in stages over the next few years unless amendments are introduced and passed by Congress in the interim.
The information can currently be found at the top of the linked page under Legislative Issues on the IFFGD website and is dated June 2012. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 status as of June 2012. DDNC, IFFGD and IBS Impact are all not connected with any political party, and are highlighting this summary for informational purposes only.
