Affordable Care Act & What To Expect In 2014

Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) finally becomes the law of the land on New Year's Day. At least, 2.1 million Americans have already signed up for insurance plans, but the question is -are you ready for this humongous change?

DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The controversial Affordable Care Act is now in full effect and it guarantees access to health coverage to Americans, whether they're young or old, sick or healthy. Most practices are still scratching their heads when it comes to this bill. The Affordable Care Act was set up to reform the healthcare industry by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, and was supported by the Supreme Court on June 28, 2012. There has been a lot of hue and cry towards the implementation of Obamacare or Affordable Care Act. To elucidate the ins and outs, expert speaker Andrew Eriksen, CMPE will cover the much-talked-about elements of ACA with AudioEducator.
