Research & Clinical Trials

The latest on cancer research, policy and how you can get involved

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act won't be fully implemented for at least another year-and-a-half.  If it survives what could be a new Congress next year, there are sure to be many questions about the healthcare law, as it is still called by some.

As most people are aware, there are many changes coming to healthcare as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is fully implemented within the next two years.

“We’ve done air quality studies, we’ve done economic impact studies, and we have seen that there has been no change in the revenue that is collected from those places that are smoke-free,” says Judy Ochs, the director for the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Division of Tobacco Prevention and Control.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 withstood a Constitutional challenge earlier this year.  Unless a new Congress votes to overturn the entire healthcare law or portions of it, the law will be implemented in its entirety by 2014.
