Check out the Health Reform GPS (from the George Washington University Hirsch Health Law and Policy Program and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), which shows how the ACA is being implemented. It highlights the reforms which will be implemented during year two, including:
1) regulations outlining “essential health benefits” sold in the individual and group markets;
2) regulations governing state health insurance exchanges and qualified health plans;
3) regulations aimed at curbing payment for unnecessary hospital care; and
4) federal standards governing Accountable Care Organizations.
