I've been having quite a few lively debates on my videos at www.youtube.com/obamamaniacs and wanted to invite you by to read some of the information there.
One of the things I've come away with from this is that people are still calling this healthcare reform thing a 'Bill'. Well, it passed people; it's now the 'LAW'.
Here are a few good things about the Healthcare Reform Law:
-Young adults under 26 are remaining on parental policies.
-Policies can't be canceled unless the insurer proves fraud.
-There are no longer lifetime limits on benefits (such limits permitted cancellation after a certain limit had been reached).
-New policies must offer free preventative services.
-Patients can choose their primary care, OB/GYN or pediatric physicians from their insurance network without referral from another doctor.
-There is a new right to appeal insurance company decisions.
-Medicare recipients have received a $250 rebate from the prescription drug plan.
-Small businesses are receiving tax credits for offering health insurance to employees.
-People with pre-existing conditions can buy insurance.
-You can use the nearest emergency room without suffering insurance company penalties.
We need to strengthen the good and improve on the bad, but I don't think this Law needs to be repealed.
