The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), also known as “The Affordable Care Act” (ACA), is a massive piece of legislation containing more than 20,000 pages of law and regulation. Many parts of this law went into effect in 2010, but the majority of the regulations begin on January 1, 2014.

Please understand that even though this is a Federal mandate, affecting all states nationwide, individual states will have DIFFERENT guidelines, and rules for many circumstances.
