FACT SHEET: Consumer Reports Explains Health Reform

October 18, 2012

The consumer organization Consumer Reports has created a guide (pdf) to health care reform, explaining the “Seven Things You Need to Know.”

The guide outlines the impact that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will have on Medicare, Medicaid, taxes, and accessing health care coverage.

It also details the parts of the law that have already taken effect and those that have yet to be fully implemented.

The ACA is scheduled to take full effect in 2014.
