Health Care Reform
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is commonly
referred to as the Affordable Care Act, Health Care Reform, or Obamacare. PPACA
was signed into law on March 23, 2010. Effective January 1, 2014 , the law requires
that all have health insurance or be subject to a fine. The Employee Benefits and
Services Division (EBSD) has developed this site to assist you in understanding
how PPACA affects your enrollment in County-sponsored health plans. Please click
