Example text

America is reforming its health care system, too, with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.

It will provide information on new health insurance exchanges, mandates for individuals to have insurance, penalties for failure to have insurance, options for businesses to cover their employees, and much more.

Most notable was a Supreme Court ruling that upheld major provisions of health care reform but complicated efforts to expand the nation舗s Medicaid program. In addition, the HHS has issued a multitude of rules and regulations affecting many key provisions of health care reform.
