Health Care Legislation

On March 21, 2010 the U.S. House of Representatives passed major health care reform legislation which is likely to affect every citizen and every employer in the country. The “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (H.R. 3590) or (“PPACA”) is the same bill passed by the U.S. Senate on December 24, 2009. President Obama has already signed the bill into law and it now imposes significant changes to the entire health care industry.

Two of our largest Wisconsin based law firms, Michael Best and Friedrich and Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek are offering summaries of this important legislation to help us understand it. Click here to view the Michael Best and Friedrich summary and here to view a table from them listing the main features of the bill.

Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek is offering a free Webinar on April 20, 2010 titled "Health Care Reform: A Preliminary View of What It Means To Employers." Here's the link to register.
