It is easy to become bogged down in the minutia of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA” or “Act”). “Health Care Reform—Historical Overview” drafted by Bernard T. King, Esq. and Daniel R. Brice, Esq., and recently presented by Mr. King in Washington D.C., provides a big picture look at Health Care Reform. The paper outlines the rationale behind the century long call for reform to this Country’s health care system and concludes with analysis of the steps that led to passage of the PPACA. By gaining a global understanding of reform, the reader can achieve better focus on the details of the new Act.
