With the Affordable Care Act (ACA) now signed into law, it moves into the regulatory arena. Laws rarely contain enough specific language to guide their implementation completely. It is the responsibility of the federal administrative agencies to fill in the details of new or amended laws with rules and regulations. Regulations/rules are used to clarify definitions, authority, eligibility, benefits, and standards. Their development is shaped not only by the law but also with the ongoing involvement and input of professional associations like ANA, other providers, third party payers, consumers and other special interest groups. ANA is especially vigilant regarding ACA actions that impact nursing, particularly those that offer the chance to overcome longstanding barriers to nursing practice.
