Navigating Your Client Through the Maze of the Affordable Care Act

Since Congress was unable to create new health care legislation this year, the Affordable Care Act is still the law of the land. Many practitioners thought that there would be new health care legislation and therefore neglected to update their knowledge on the ACA.
