TMA HELPS YOU FIND WHAT'S REALLY IN THE HEALTH REFORM BILL
Now that the first wave of the health system reform law (PDF) is in effect, you might be asking yourself: What else is really in that bill? How can I get beyond the talk-show hyperbole and read the facts? TMA’s crack policy, legal, and lobby teams have compiled two excellent, easy-to-read summaries. Our executive summary reviews what the bill does — and what it doesn’t do. For more depth, see our section-by-section summary (PDF). That document can help you decide which provision of the law may pertain to a particular question or issue. Use it to gain a basic understanding of what the law intends to accomplish before reviewing the actual statutory text. Find all of this and more on TMA’s Health System Reform Action Center.
