The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 marks an important milestone in redefining how healthcare will be practiced in the United States for decades to come. This review article will outline the basic concepts associated with the PPACA, including value-based purchasing, pay for performance, accountable care organizations, bundled payments, and patient-centered medical homes, and will discuss how each of these components of the PPACA will impact the subspecialty of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS).
