Health Reform

President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23. Last week, he spoke about health reform when he visited Portland. The entire speech is available here.

This National Association of State Medicaid Directors document gives a side-by-side comparison of the different health care reform bills, while the Kaiser Family Foundation developed this summary of the final law and implementation timeline.

This Trust for America’s Health web page describes the prevention components of the final legislation.

The Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs’ Health Reform web page has a number of helpful links focused on the impact on maternal and child health programs as well as more general information.
