On March 23, President Obama signed in to law the Patient Protection and Health Care Reform Act (Public Law 111-148). The Health Care and Education Tax Credits Reconciliation Act, which passed the US House of Representatives on March 21 and the US Senate on March 25, makes significant amendments to the new public law. The more than 2500 pages that make up these two pieces of legislation contain multiple reforms, provisions and statutes that will change the way most companies operate. Whether you are in the health care industry or just an employer that offers health coverage, this new legislation has the potential to significantly impact the way you do business. What do you have to do to prepare your company for what's next?
