The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld nearly every provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the Act), meaning that the health care industry and employers will need to prepare for full implementation of the Act this year and next in anticipation of a new health delivery and health benefits world in 2014. The only provision of the Act not
affirmed by the Court affects state decisions on whether to
participate in Medicaid expansion, and that likely will only have an impact on a state-by-state basis after 2016.
