The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its complex framework of regulations will have a permanent impact on businesses, their employees, physicians, hospitals and many others for years to come in the United States. With health care delivery and financing systems continuing to experience significant reforms and new employer-sponsored insurance requirements beginning in 2014 and 2015, the ACA has begun to impact businesses across the country.

Our firm possesses unparalleled ACA experience that includes working directly for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to implement policies, regulatory frameworks, and statutory requirements created under the ACA.
