With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("national health reform" or "the Affordable Care Act") on March 23, 2010, Illinois families and employers can anticipate a health insurance marketplace that will provide more meaningful benefits, be more accountable to consumers, and be more transparent. Most health insurance reforms are scheduled to be implemented and effective by January 1, 2014.
