I am a health law and employee benefits attorney at the Davis Brown Law Firm
in Des Moines, Iowa. Our clients include private and governmental
employers, self-insured health plans, multiple employer welfare
arrangements, agents and brokers and a wide variety of health care
Over the past 16 months we have assisted clients with implementing
various portions of the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act
(the "Affordable Care Act"), the federal health care reform legislation
passed in March 2010. Because the act's requirements are continually
evolving and implementation is spread over many years, we are frequently
updating clients on new developments and implementation issues.
We've developed this blog as a way to provide clients with the most
up-to-date information-including updates on the federal government's
implementation of the Affordable Care Act, new regulations, recently
issued guidance and enforcement updates. The blog will also comment on
any issues specific to the State of Iowa.
