OK, so maybe the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as the ACA, PPACA or Obamacare), isn’t a topic you would normally expect to find here, but if you are one of my U.S. readers, you:
a) will more than likely be impacted by the ACA in some fashion; and
b) more than likely don’t know as much as you should about what happens when.
The ACA ball gets rolling tomorrow, 10/1, so now is about as good a time as any to get familiarized with what changes will take place and when.
In my other life (my day job), I head up marketing for an employee benefits consulting firm. I created the timeline graphic below to help educate everyone on the important dates associated with the ACA legislation. If you click on the graphic, you will also be able to download a pdf version of this graphic in case you want to print it.
I hope you find this helpful. Things re about to get interesting out there!
