Enacted in March of 2010, the Affordable Care Act  is designed to expand reliable, affordable coverage options, prevent insurance companies from discriminating against those with pre-existing conditions, improve the quality of care, strengthen consumer protections, and boost the bargaining power of families and small business through the new health insurance exchanges.  With full implementation slated for 2014, many important implementation decisions are now being made at the state and national level.
