Very few of us have time to read, let alone interpret, the nearly 1,000-page U.S. healthcare reform law passed in March 2010 even though it has been billed as the most sweeping change to federal health law in more than 40 years. The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions - the premier medical society for cardiologists who perform catheter-based cardiovascular procedures (such as angioplasty and stenting) - has assembled a guide to help patients and family quickly and easily understand the key pieces of the Affordable Care Act, when changes go into effect, and what it all means for you and your family. That guide, available at SecondsCount.org, is one resource available to you. The information contained in it is also useful for those without cardiovascular conditions. Another good starting point is the website of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
