This page, maintained by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) in consultation with the other state agencies involved in ACA implementation, will bring you news related to the implementation of provisions of the ACA here in Massachusetts. In March 2010, this country witnessed an historic achievement: the passage of the most important federal health reform since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (also known as the ACA) will create the biggest expansion of health care coverage, making health insurance accessible to millions of people who currently are uninsured. The ACA also protects individuals from insurance industry discrimination and moves the nation toward health care cost containment, which will enable us to afford expanded access to health insurance.
