CCH Offers Complete Text, Explanation, Analysis of Health Care Reform Law
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 13, 2010) – Now there’s a single, comprehensive resource from CCH that explains and makes accessible the sweeping changes brought about by recently enacted health care reform legislation: CCH's Law, Explanation and Analysis of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Including Reconciliation Act Impact. The authoritative new resource provides employers, health, insurance and legal professionals with comprehensive explanation and analysis of every aspect of the Act and its accompanying Health Care Reconciliation Act. CCH is part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, a leading provider of information and software solutions for legal, business compliance and human resources professionals (hr.cch.com; health.cch.com).
“Significant portions of this legislation are going into effect as early as this year, and changes will imminently impact thousands of employers, insurance industry professionals and health care providers,” said Janeen Kopale, Director, Corporate Compliance Market. “We’ve committed our editorial resources to making sure that professionals have all the resources they need to understand, interpret and make optimal decisions about every provision.”
The two-volume book includes CCH explanations of all provisions, from insurance market reforms to Medicare and Medicaid program changes, including the revenue provisions that impose new taxes and fees to fund and guide reform.
The legislation covers a wide range of topics of interest to employers and the insurance industry, including enhanced employer responsibility, health insurance exchanges and an individual responsibility mandate. Health providers and beneficiaries will be affected by expanded eligibility rules for Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program, reimbursement changes for physicians and hospitals to focus on primary and preventive care, provisions to increase coverage in rural areas and expansion of existing value-based purchasing and quality programs for Part A providers.
In all, CCH’s expert analysts crafted nearly 500 explanations detailing the impact of the legislation. To unravel the complexity of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as amended by its Manager’s Amendment (Title X) and further by the Reconciliation Act, the book also includes an editorially enhanced version of the new law with all amending language integrated in place in the law text. This integrated version of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provides readers immediate access to the final, fully amended impact of each provision of the new law.
Text, Reports and Tables
In addition, CCH’s coverage includes the full text of Executive Order 13535 and congressional committee reports that provide significant background information on the law, as well as numerous finding devices to help navigate between analysis and the official text documents.
A number of tables provide at-a-glance information that speeds research. Three tables of effective dates are keyed to sections of the Social Security Act, ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code. Other tables correlate sections of the Social Security Act, ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code to CCH explanations, listing the sections of each which have been added, amended or repealed, and listing the Act sections amending each one.
Access to Website
Customers who purchase CCH's Law, Explanation and Analysis of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Including Reconciliation Act Impact also receive Internet access to the Social Security Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, and Internal Revenue Code provisions, as amended by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care Reconciliation Act. Any changed, added, or deleted text of these laws will be available on the website, including Amendment Notes detailing the changes. Website access details will be provided in the front inside cover of the book. Purchasers should visit the website to view the amended law and other valuable health reform resources and information.
“This comprehensive coverage and correlation represents an enormous amount of work by the CCH analysts, and the result will be that professionals will save countless hours as they work to understand and interpret this massive reform law in the years ahead,” Kopale said.
