Alaska Health Care Commission

Federal Health Care Reform

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, signed into federal law on March 23, 2010, dramatically changes the structure within which state health systems operate. The Health Care Commission is not involved in implementation of the Affordable Care Act, but conducted an initial assessment of the impact on Alaska soon after its passage, and is tracking implementation of the law at the federal level and in Alaska.
