On March 21, the United States Congress made history, passing a
health care reform bill that will result in the most significant
changes to our national health care system since the introduction
of Medicare nearly 25 years ago. Every person in our country will
be touched in one way or another by this sweeping legislation. Many
aspects of health care reform will be positive; other aspects will
be challenging. Some aspects of health care reform will be felt
more immediately; others will be realized in the years to come.
Exactly how health care reform will impact the general public,
business and the health care industry will be determined over the
next several years on the local, state and national level as rules
are created interpreting the intent of the legislation.
At Lima Memorial we are committed to helping simplify and
clarify the health care reform process. In the future in this
