Healthcare Reform

Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act Overview

The Medical Trust's Compliance History

Healthcare reform began in earnest in March 2009. In one year, it moved from a proposal to passage by the Senate and the House of Representatives, and on March 23, 2010 the Affordable care Act (ACA) was signed into law by President Obama. 

In 2009 with the passage of the Denominational Health Plan (DHP), the Medical Trust became the provider of medical benefits for The Episcopal Church. The Medical Trust knew its plans would be impacted by the ACA, and kept abreast of the legislation, which continues to evolve to this day.

How The Medical Trust Complies

The Medical Trust's plans are in compliance with all current provision of the ACA. In fact, the Medical Trust had instituted many of these provisions prior to healthcare reform, as they were in the best interests of those we serve.
