Fairfax County's Health Care Reform Implementation Task ForcePDFwas established on on December 2, 2010. Its purpose was to study the provisions of the Affordable Care Act and analyze the operational impact of the legislation's various requirements.

The Task Force was asked to recommend strategies for implementation in the Fairfax community to include policy decisions related to future structuring of safety net services; incorporating analysis of existing, revised and new health insurance coverage opportunities; and implement and operate approved and agreed upon actions.

The Task Force met for the first time in January 2011. George Mason University's Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics served as a consultant to the Task Force, conducting research and synthesizing information. In addition, staff from several Fairfax County agencies and various community organizations contributed to the initial findings. View resources.PDF

Following completion of its initial objectives, the Task Force was renamed in the fall of 2012. Now called the Fairfax Community Health Collaborative, members will begin to implement, administer, and evaluate the recommended actions recommended in the coming years.
