  • The House of Representatives has passed two pieces of legislation that will fundamentally transform America’s health care system. First, it passed the Senate’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590), a comprehensive reform bill that will go to the President for his signature. Second, the House passed the Health Care & Education Affordability Reconciliation Act (H.R. 4872). This second bill makes some amendments to the underlying bill and must now be considered by the Senate. Together, the provisions in these bills will impact providers, insurers, employers, individuals, states and localities.
