Last week, I shared my thoughts on the health care reform bill. I view it in the same way I view the new Credit Card Act — the premise behind these changes are great, but what is the reality? It remains to be seen. Given how critics have reacted to the bill, with a vocal segment being up in arms about it, who knows just how much of this legislation could potentially evolve over time?
While we all would love to lower health care costs across the board, we’re still far from that reality despite steps being taken to get there. I actually foresee my health insurance premiums going up, no thanks to this new bill! I’m going to be one of those unlucky small business owners who’ll be hit by the wrong side of this bill but at least insurance companies can’t reject me for having a precondition or two (a common concern as we all grow older).
Just to clarify what’s in that health care reform bill, I’d like to present this handy visual of the comprehensive details and timeline covering the changes, and how they’ll impact our money, our health insurance and our lives. If you’ve got weak eyes like I do, then click on the image below or this link and make sure to zoom in for a better look.
