Affordable Care Act - Individual Provisions
Field of Study:
By changing many of the rules traditionally applicable to health insurance and imposing
healthcare-related requirements on virtually every individual, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)
is likely to affect virtually every person in the United States in some way.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) imposes various tax increases in order to generate revenue and
uses a carrot and stick approach to ensure compliance with its provisions by offering tax credits for compliance and,
until 2019, by imposing tax penalties for non-compliance. This course will review the principal provisions of the law
