The new bill will make insurance "affordable" for many that currently can't afford coverage. There will be subsidies to help the unemployed and low income. Businesses will be encouraged to provide health care options to their employees, again I venture to say not many employers provide "free health care", there will be a cost. Parents will be able to keep children on their family plans until age 26, again premiums will increase. Many people that are employed had opted out of health care for multitudes of reasons, these people will now have to contribute to the health care system to some degree whether they like it or not. I think alot of people feel this new bill is "free" health care when its truely not, more people will have to contribute to the system than currently do. I am undecided how this will all work out in the long run but I guess time will tell.
My hubby was informed his insurance would now require a 3k deductible and that is before co-pays will even start, and of course he still has to pay the weekly premiums.
