When Does Obama's Health Care Plan Start Taking Effect?

Postby Scelftun » Fri Aug 25, 2017 3:25 pm

The "Obamacare" kicks in this year for insurance reforms, and the senior citizen fix for the "doughnut hole" overlap in prescription coverage kicks in next year, 2011, but there is provision for a $250 supplemental payment this year to cover any costs incurred. Also this year is that kids up to age 26 can still be covered by their parents' insurance.
An added feature is the elimination of banks as middlemen for student loans (to lower education costs)...students will now be able to make higher-education loans at a lower interest rate directly from the Department of Education.
Some provisions are gradually phased in, and by 2014 the 32,000,000 people currently not covered by insurance will be covered. Insurance companies cannot deny coverage due to pre-existing condition, cannot cap coverage for major illnesses, cannot abruptly cancel as soon as premium payers become ill or injured. The new law and it's "Fix It" addendae (consisting of changes from the Committee Mark-up process that passed in both the House and Senate and now awaiting President Obama's signature for this week) provide American citizens with three things: Accountability, Affordability, and Accessibility (what I've dubbed the three A+'s).
For more detail, go to the whitehouse.gov line, where both are posted.
There is also a chance for you to voice your concerns, and they DO respond.
I get e-mails from the White House on most of my questions or comments.

2014 is the date it will go into effect although you will begin paying for it now through your income taxes.

Bend over, it's coming at you now.

Benefits, however, not for a few years. It will be repealed or stricken down by the court by then. But you won't get your money back

For those of you that think this is a good law, you have a very rude awakening in the coming years.

This bill was entirely written in a Progressive, Liberal echo chamber, with disregard for any economics, truth, reality or common sense. This will be exponentially more expensive than was promoted, and most of the people who voted for this know that. We need to show them the door in November.

Don't let the House doors hit you on your way out; just leave!!!

i am not covered (will be paying penalty) but will get husbands in 2 months - but deductible so high i wont go to doctor unless its an emergency. so will just cost us more with no benefit unless i am dying - in which case i dont want revived just pain meds. and leave my husband the bills.

some provisions have already taken consequence. the guy mandate takes consequence in 2014. in case you examine the wikipedia article for PPACA, it grants each and all of the provisions and the start dates.

Actually it took affect the instant he signed the bill into law.

The part I like the best however is that taxes will go up instantly for the first four years even though the benefits dont kick in until 2014...brilliant piece of legislation huh?

When we get hyperinflation style cost increases in the healthcare industry.

Similar to what medicare did in the 1970s.
