Healthcare law's new regulations set soon
A deluge of new rules is expected in the coming days and weeks as the Obama administration fleshes out the national health law's complex components. Most of the anticipation has been focused on rules that determine how the new state-based insurance marketplaces called exchanges will operate.

Some of the significant decisions on the health law that the administration is expected to announce are summarized.
