It says that insurance companies can no longer refuse to insure him or charge him more because of it. Same with my son's autism.
Huh, last I read, autism was excluded: Click here. Don't believe what the media/politicans who haven't even read the bill are feeding you. If it is deemed that your condition is not worth the taxpayers money and/or untreatable, you will either not be treated or you will have to wait so long that treatment won't matter. Look at our wonderful example up north.

It says that diseases, etc fall to agency and a particular person in charge to make decisions on. It would likely fall to the health czar e. Emmanuel, to decide. Since his life and health views are a little scary,I'd be afraid, too.
That is what scares me.
