Abstract
The recent changes to the core structure of modern American health care are nothing short of epic, rivaled in historic scale only by the introduction of Medicare in 1965. Although each decade over the past 50 years has in some way used government programs and incentives in an attempt to urge health care to undergo recalibration as a means to establish industry stability, by the end of the first decade of the 21st Century it had become evident that health care in the United States was fast becoming unsustainable as it existed. Three years after the Federal Government passed the Affordable Care Act in an attempt to right the sinking ship, we the people are still waiting for the tide to turn. Having survived last summer’s monumental challenge before the United States Supreme Court and a presidential election in November, the Affordable Care Act has not only emerged as the law of the land, it has cemented its place as health care’s blueprint throughout America for decades to come.
