The Patient Protection and Affordable Care and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Acts of 2010 represent the most sweeping and controversial public health care program since the creation of Medicare.
Overhauling a healthcare industry that accounts for over one sixth of the national economy while adding coverage for 32 million Americans, these Acts make extensive use of the Internal Revenue Code to reform health insurance. In fact, they contain more than $400 billion in revenue raisers and new taxes. This course overviews these major tax law changes and their affect on individuals, businesses, and healthcare providers.
