On March 21, 2010, the House of Representatives passed the Senate-version legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590) (the “Affordable Care Act”). The same day, the House also passed a separate budget reconciliation bill, The Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (H.R. 4872) (the “Reconciliation Act”). The Senate is taking up the Reconciliation Act.
