  • So tell me more about that new free health insurance

  • Confusion in the market Starts with the name85% recognize the name Obamacare< 30% recognize ACAPPACA ???????Is the Patient Protection Affordability and Accountability Act a law or bill?What pieces were delayed and until when?Who is eligible for a subsidy and what does it mean to me?What about those tax credits?What will be available and how much will it cost?If I do nothing now, what is the worst that could happen to me?Will the options be same in NW Ohio, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Youngstown?Ohio will have more volatility than other states

  • Patient Protection Affordability and Accountability Act Signed into Law March 23, 2010

  • Current Political Dynamic

  • PPACA/ACA/ObamacareSince passage the law has never gotten above 50% approval in public opinion pollsThe law survived a Supreme Court challenge with only a change to the penalty to states not expanding Medicaid to 133-138% of FPLThe law survived two national elections with one of those re-electing President ObamaCurrent split government in Congress will not bring any legislative changes. Period.Even if the Republican controlled House of Representatives is successful in de-funding the law, all the other provisions will go forward. We are past the point of return to pre-2010.

  • PPACA what does it look like?

  • What Is The Health Care Reform Law All About?It is NOT a total takeover of the health care system to create a single payer Canadian or European style health care system.

    It is a MASSIVE new law that brings federal regulation to health insurance as opposed to the traditional state regulation of the insurance industry.

    It does include a number of new regulations for healthcare providers, but falls short of total takeover of the entire system.

    Citizens will still be dealing with private health care providers and private insurance companies unless covered by Medicaid.
