Government Navigator

 
The Department of Health & Human Services (H.H.S.), the Department of Labor (D.O.L.), and the Treasury (Internal Revenue Service or I.R.S.) are the agencies responsible for oversight and implementation of PPACA. Healthcare.gov is a website established and maintained by HHS as the public portal for health reform information.  The DOL and IRS deal with issues other than health insurance.  The links below will take you directly to the health site information for any of the governmental entities.  You will no longer have to hunt through the complex department websites and resources to find the information you are seeking - the Government Navigator takes you there directly.

 Department of Labor
 
 
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 directs the Secretary of Labor to conduct a survey of employer-sponsored health plans to determine the benefits typically covered by employers, and to report the results of the survey to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This study was conducted at the request of the Department of Health and Human Services to supplement the medical benefit provisions regularly published as part of the National Compensation Survey’s (NCS) employee benefits program.

The full version of the report is available at http://www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/sp/selmedbensreport.pdf. The 12 additional medical benefits come from the same sample that yielded data for NCS: Health and Retirement Plan Provisions in Private Industry in the United States, 2009, available at http://www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/detailedprovisions/2009/ebbl0045.pdf.
