The 2012 elections have come and gone and the Supreme Court upheld their ruling on President Obama's health care law.  Now what?  What exactly is in the health care law?  How will it affect me, my family and/or my business?  How much is it going to cost?  These are just a few questions I have been asked since the elections...and there will be plenty more coming my way over the next year.  

The healthcare law is known by many names.  The proper name is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), followed by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), HealthCare Reform (HCR) and the most popular name of all, Obamacare.   Regardless of what you want to call it, it's here, like it or not. For simplicity I will be referring to the health care law as HealthCare Reform or HCR.

The goals of this blog are basic:  Educating you on what HealthCare Reform is, how it will affect you and how medical gap plans will play an integral role.  There are a few household rules you will need to be aware of.  These rules will be posted in a few days.
