  • On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law Pub. L. No. 111-148, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Shortly afterwards, on March 30, 2010, President Obama signed into law Pub. L. No. 111-152, the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010 (the Reconciliation Amendments), amending PPACA. PPACA, as now amended by the Reconciliation Amendments (collectively the Act), will have far-reaching effects for the entire health care sector.
