The Kaiser Foundation has a new timeline detailing when specific provisions of the health reform law are scheduled to take effect. It reflects the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as modified by the Health Care & Education Reconciliation Act. A separate summary of the law is also available, as is an interactive calculator to illustrate the subsidies in the law and a brief explaining how the new law will close the Medicare drug benefit’s coverage gap. These resources and more are found on the Health Reform Gateway.
