Health Care Bill: Development or Doom?

Category: News

It’s a moment in history that will be remembered, for better or worse, as President Obama has passed the much debated health care bill that means to extend insurance coverage to roughly 32 million additional Americans. Whether it is development or doom, the opinion is divided. Here are some of the points that news sources have highlighted:

•      Most Americans will now be required to have health insurance or pay a fine.

•      Larger employers will be required to provide coverage or risk financial penalties.

•      Total individual out-of-pocket expenses will be capped, and insurers will be barred from denying coverage based on gender or pre-existing conditions.
