  • On March 21, 2010, the House of Representatives passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”), which President Obama signed into law on March 23, 2010. The health care reform law will make far-reaching changes to the United States health care system over the next several years. The House and Senate also passed a separate bill, the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (“HCERA”), which President Obama signed into law on March 30, 2010. HCERA resolves the differences between the House and Senate versions of the health care bill by amending the PPACA.
