So when is all of it suppose to go into effect? So far all I've heard is health insurance premiums rising, so where is this affordable healthcare? What about the nationally ran healthcare program? How does one qualify? Is it ran like Medicaid? How do we prevent ourselves from getting fined? Anyone up to explaining the deets?

Well. What I heard (for my place of work) only 2 employees are allowed more than 30 hours. Everyone else has to be below 25. It's gona cost like 70 bucks a week which I CANNOT afford. And if we don't get the insurance than the take more money out of your taxes. I heard its supposed to begin in 2014. Sounds like a bunch of crap to me.

Interesting. So only thing changing this year is for employers and higher cost for people who pay for their coverage.

The fine will increase yearly until 2016, but I'm not sure when it will be implemented.

There are quite a few companies putting their employees on p/t to avoid having to pay for insurance.

There are currently dozens of lawsuits pending against various aspects of the mandate, none of which have won injunctions but all of which are at various stages of being heard and at different levels of the legal system.

 Insurance premiums go up EVERY January so this is nothing new. We know every year that it's going to happen and my husband checks all of the insurance plans to make sure we are getting the best possible insurance coverage, no matter what the cost. Good health care is worth whatever we have to pay for it.

All I know is that Obama friggin lied! My private insurance won't go up....my ass! It went up dso high that the company would've been charged tens of thousands more (less than 50 employees) for the exact same insurance. We had to lower the plan, which still costs more than last years premium, but with sucker care. We went from the ER copay being $100 to $250 and hospital stay being $1000 total to $1000 a DAY. So, our copays are higher and do is the premium. Bullshit Obama. Bullshit.
