Health Care Reform Status February 2011
I often get asked “what is the status of the Health Care Reform law”? This topic is known by several different names as I have listed below:
Health Care Reform (HCR) – Affordable Health Care (AHC) – Affordable Care Act (ACA)
Affordable Health Care for America Act (AHCAA) (H. R. 3962) (the House bill)
While I do not have many real answers with regard to what this new law means, I am working hard to keep up with how it affects Texans and my health insurance clients in particular.
TIME LINES for Health Care Reform
The following links provide good information on what is to happen and when with the new law:
UHC – United Health Care HCR “time line” and other links
Next is a list of web resources I have collected that I believe offer excellent information. I have grouped by type and the best (per my opinion) are listed first:
US Government Resources:
New Media Resources: Again, the best (per my opinion) are listed first.
Health Care Reform Topic from Wikipedia
This is very broad information, but, it is open source so like a lot of things take with a grain of salt.

TexasHealth.org is a DFW located Health care system (for the North Texas region around and including DFW) that seems to be a good resource dealing with the New 2010 Health Care Reform Law.
Commentary and opinion on HCR, although one of “very many” on the topic, is short, fair and balanced.
In closing, the above collection of links provides information about the Health Care Reform Law from multiple reliable sources. No one knows it all, as the topic is just too big and complex. The truth will be revealed to the public as the government bureaucrats decipher the law.
I believe they will do this with the help of the health insurance companies, for the good (and/or bad) of the public, the insurance companies, and the country.
