This week marks the fifth Anniversary of President Obama’s signature health reform law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Many ACA provisions have gone into effect over the last five years; however, due to design or delay, a number of significant reforms have yet to be implemented or fully realized.

To commemorate five years of health reform, Wolters Kluwer is publishing this Strategic Perspective, which, among other things, counts down five major ACA changes to look forward to in coming years. These looming changes include:

  • Medicaid DSH payment reductions
  • Individual mandate penalties
  • Hospital-acquired condition reduction program
  • Employer recordkeeping requirements
  • ‘Pay or play’ provisions for employers
