(Undated) -- The run-up to the implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act was one of the biggest stories of 2013. witf's multimedia Transforming Health project followed the latest developments from preparations to the roll-out of the healthcare.gov website to lingering questions over how businesses and individuals would be affected.

Story 1:

Many politicians, businesses, families, and medical professionals are curious to see just how the federal Affordable Care Act will be implemented in the coming years.

As part of our multimedia, Transforming Health project, witf's Megan Lello takes a look at how a couple of midstate businesses are coping with the changes:

Story 2:

The debate over whether or not Governor Corbett should expand Medicaid in Pennsylvania reached new heights this week when the Republican met with the federal Health and Human Services secretary.

As part of our multimedia, Transforming Health initiative, WITF's Megan Lello reports those who *could* gain coverage are waiting to see how it all plays out...

Story 3:

Nearly a month into its rollout, the woes continue for the Health Care (dot) Gov website.

Many Pennsylvanians are experiencing long delays, broken loops and error messages as they try to navigate the state's federally-administered exchange.

As part of our Transforming Health initiative, witf's Matt Paul reports results in the midstate are mixed.

Story 4:

 The Obama administration has announced it's delaying the launch of an online health insurance marketplace for small businesses, known as the Small Business Health Options Program (or SHOP) exchange. 

But employers can still choose to buy the coverage offline. As part of our multimedia project, Transforming Health, witf's Matt Paul reports they're still paying close attention to other provisions in the Affordable Care Act.

Story 5:

 The federal Affordable Care Act's employer mandate could have dire consequences for volunteer fire companies across the state.
