What is in the health care reform bill?
Two of the most important questions surrounding the new health care reform bill.
For those people who are wondering what is in the health care reform bill, you should know that the bill is rather complicated. It is more than 100 pages long, which is why there has been so much misunderstanding about it up to this point. Breaking it down in layman’s terms might be a little bit difficult, but it is easy if you try to just cover the most important parts of the new bill.
What is in the health care reform bill for people who have insurance already?
For those who have insurance, you might be sitting around thinking, “What is in the health care reform bill for me?” The answer is that if you already have a plan, then not a whole lot is require of you. Many people had feared that they would be forced to drop their health plan and pick up a government provided plan, but that won’t be the case. You can keep your plan, with the only difference being that you will not be able to modify it and jump from plan to plan anymore. The grandfather clause is a big part of the current health care reform bill.
What are the big changes with the health care reform bill?
By 2014, most everyone is going to have to have insurance of some kind, or they will be forced to pay a fine. That applies for everyone except those people who fall under the poverty line, as they will be exempt from this forceful approach. Additionally, businesses are being required to step up to the plate if they have more than 50 employees. If they cross that threshold, then they effectively have to provide health insurance for everyone, since the fines would make it impossible to operate otherwise.
