All about Healthcare Reform

by R&I Consultants

Healthcare is constantly changing, so it is our job at Risk & Insurance Consultants to keep you “in the know.” That way, you will know exactly how legislation, like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), affects your Atlanta health insurance.

The PPACA is the most significant government expansion of the healthcare system since Medicare and Medicaid in 1965. It is aimed to decrease the number of uninsured Americans and reduce the overall cost of healthcare. Though becoming a law in 2010, the PPACA is still rolling out reforms and will throughout the next several years.

According to, here is just a short timeline:

2013. Individuals and business can buy affordable and qualified benefit plans that comply with the PPACA. Our agents at Risk & Insurance will help you get the best health insurance for your needs.

2014. Tax credits will be issued to help middle class families so they can afford insurance.

Over time, the goal of PPACA is that the delivery of healthcare will become streamlined.  The PPACA also work to improve the quality of healthcare received by consumers.
