Pre-existing conditions covered. Kids up to 26 covered. All preventative measures, exams, test, etc...100% covered. No lifetime maximum for medical plans. These are some of the changes by law in 2011. Do you think that they got some of it right? I do. It isn't that I would not give up these benefits. I can NOT. I was able to get insurance at work & sometimes I don't even have the co-pay to go to doc.., much less meds, even with a med plan. I just think THEY don't GET IT !! What do you think about losing these benefits, if they undo them?Answer Question

Real reform needed to happen yesterday, and some of the provisions are positive, IMO. Having the best HC in the world is only as good as its financial accessibility-

Lots of things have changed in the last 30 years- Job outsourcing, PT only positions (thus eliminating HC benefits all together), downsizing, right sizing....... If you're a less than 26 year old with advanced degrees, 5 years of experience in an "In demand" field, and have a strong connection, you might, be hired for a self supporting job with HC benefits. Otherwise, chances are slim.

I agree with Anouck and Jesse. It's not perfect but overturning it is a waste of time. We need them to concentrate on jobs ! I also agree that "children" should be on their parents plan til 26 regardless of the haters that think they should be working by then and can afford it. Laughable ain't it?
