Health-Related Revenue Provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)

Janemarie Mulvey
Specialist in Aging and Income Security

On March 23, President Obama signed health care reform legislation into law—the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA; P.L. 111-148), some provisions of which are amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-152). PPACA will, among other things, raise revenues to pay for expanded health insurance coverage by imposing excise taxes and fees on industries in the health care sector, limiting tax-advantaged health accounts, increasing the Medicare payroll tax on upper-income households and adding an additional tax on net investment income on upper-income households. The new law will also eliminate the tax deduction for expenses allocable to the Medicare Part D subsidy to employers. 

This report summarizes the health-related revenue provisions in PPACA.
