The White House and Health and Human Services (HHS) web sites provide general information about health reform and question and answer sections, and an IRS webpage provides information about the new small employer tax credit. The DOL webpage links to the other agency pages and also contains links to four items which may be of interest to employers:
For Employers - This document lists healthcare reform items that are relevant to small employers, larger employers and all employers.
Summary - This summary document provides an over view of PPACA and breaks the law into nine categories, summarizing key points of interest under each.
Implementation Timeline - This document provides a brief description of the many components of health care reform that will become effective over the coming years, from 2010 through 2018.
Insurance Market Reform - This document provides information about the various health insurance market place reforms.
These materials provide a starting point for those trying to understand the new law. Keep an eye on these websites as they will continue to evolve over the months ahead as more interpretation and guidance is issued.
