In the midst of countless healthcare debates, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is written into legislation as a possible
solution to the United States's rising healthcare costs. Individualized into nine titles, the act sought to provide additional coverage to
millions of Americans while cutting down healthcare costs through numerous provisions effective into 2020. While the act has been
challenged publicly and privately by the states, many healthcare professionals today, let alone the average American, are unaware
and uneducated of what comprises the act, as well as the impact in which it has on the future of healthcare in the United States. With
an increasing role of patient care placed upon pharmacists today, an understanding of the PPACA allows us to provide extensive
answers to questions in which our patients may have.
