The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is a federal statute that was signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010. The Act, along with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, implement wide sweeping changes to the delivery of health care, to health insurance, and to public wellness.
