Washington, D.C., March 23, 2012 – As the U.S. Supreme Court is set to start hearing oral arguments on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), LifeHealthPro.com and BenefitsPro.com — properties of Summit Business Media — will have a team of editors on the ground in Washington, D.C. to provide live coverage of the hearings.
Signed into law by President Obama on March 23rd, 2010, the PPACA made sweeping changes to the nation’s health care system, including individual and employer insurance provisions, payer requirements around pre-existing conditions, age thresholds and preventive care, along with Medicaid expansion.
“This is a historical moment for our entire country. And for LifeHealthPro and BenefitsPro readers, in particular, the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will have a direct impact on their livelihoods,” said James E. Green, Group Editorial Director of Summit’s Life & Health and Employee Benefits Groups. “Consequently, we’re deploying additional editorial resources to Washington, D.C. to help support the veteran reporters in our Washington Bureau so that we can keep our audience up to date with exclusive specialized coverage of this momentous occasion.”
