The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a long, complicated document that will cause real changes in the way that you and your family access and pay for health insurance. Texas Impact is committed to helping you understand the bill and making sure that you get the benefits available to you. Below is a list of PPACA provisions that go into effect in January, 2011.
Prescription Drug Discounts
