eAlert 194fc788-dbe0-42ec-8444-50532c14deda

<p>To mark the six-month anniversary of the passage of health reform, The Commonwealth Fund launched today a new <a href="~/link.aspx?_id=9B4EC3E4A71F457280D4CB62F713DCFC&_z=z">Health Reform Resource Center</a>, the most comprehensive tool for exploring and understanding the provisions of the Affordable Care Act.</p>
<p>Visitors to the Health Reform Resource Center can view a timeline of the law's major provisions and use the "Find Health Reform Provisions" tool to search for clear, detailed summaries of specific provisions by year, category, and/or stakeholder group. For example, to find a summary of the provision that takes effect this Thursday allowing young adults to join or stay on their parents' health plan until age 26, just select 2010/Coverage/Young Adults. </p>
<p>The provision summaries, which include estimates of health system savings where applicable, link to related Commonwealth Fund content as well as federal regulations issued so far. </p>
<p>Visitors can also read the Fund’s new <em>Realizing Health Reform's Potential</em> <a href="~/link.aspx?_id=F4EDA1AE78A944BEA80198B614439375&_z=z">issue brief series</a>, which examines how the Affordable Care Act will benefit different groups, improve health insurance coverage, and change the way care is delivered. <br /></p>
