Healthcare Reform  

The Affordable Care Act (often referred to as “Health Reform”) was passed by Congress in March 2010, but gives most implementation responsibilities to states. State staff in Healthcare and Family Services, Department of Human Services and the Department of Insurance are working diligently to implement the ACA. Some of the key references are found below:
