Health Care Reform


The information contained in this site provides a summary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also referred to as Health Care Reform. Health Care Reform brings massive changes and complex information. While many provisions of the law are still being worked out, WSU continues to implement elements where there is a clear understanding of the law. The ACA was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President on March 23, 2010, and upheld by the Supreme Court on June 28, 2012.

This webpage was created to provide you with WSU's activities in our effort to comply with ACA and also to provide you access to resources where more information can be found, such as the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation website.

The video "Health Reform Hits Main Street",1 produced by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, gives high-level information on Health Care Reform and how it affects Americans. The video is available here.

This site will be helpful in communicating latest activities to those who visit and have an interest in learning more. Our plan is to post updated information as it becomes available.
