Enacted in March of 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provides new benefits and rights for patients, provides tax credits for small employers, and mandates new employer reporting and notification requirements. While several major reforms of the law do not take effect until 2014 or later – such as state-based exchanges, free choice vouchers, no preexisting condition exclusions, and guarantee issue” requirements – a number of significant reforms were instituted in 2010 with other provisions taking effect in 2011 and 2012.
