The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has brought about the most significant change in healthcare since the passage of the 1965 legislation that authorized Medicare. It imposes healthcare-related requirements on health plans, health insurers, and employers. Eligible small employers may receive tax credits for providing health insurance coverage to their employees, and large employers may find themselves subject to tax penalties for failing to provide such employee coverage.
