Kaiser's new implementation timeline is an interactive tool designed to explain how and when the provisions of the health reform law will be implemented over the next several years.

Several provisions of the new health care law have already gone into effect and more take effect each year through 2014 and beyond. January 1, 2011 is the next key date when more provisions take effect.

Kaiser's new interactive Implementation Timeline allows you to see by year, when provisions take effect and allows you to filter your selection by topic area (such as financing/taxes or Medicare).
