The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act began last year. This is a 10-year plan. There is no free health care unless you qualify for Medicaid and the eligibility was expanded last year so more people can get on it. The insurance exchange will be ready in 2014 to buy your own health insurance with a tax credit subsidy on your tax return.
A job like that does not offer health insurance. Under the Health Care Act only companies with more than 50 employees must offer insurance. And some companies have been granted waivers because they have to offer better benefits than they wanted to and it will be a burden. I dont think health insurance should be tied to jobs at all.
DAVE87GN: You have to be more than poor to get Medicaid. You must ALSO be under 21, over 65, disabled, blind, pregnant, a new immigrant, have minor children.
