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.

You can go to any county clinic and get HIV drugs for free.

well it doesnt go into full effect until 2014, but it doesnt matter because with HIV patients the government will triage you until the following spring in the hopes that you get a cold over the winter

You'll have to buy your own health insurance then. You'll have to get a different job because then, you won't be able to afford it, or pay the fine, then you still won't be able to afford it.

there is no free healthcare under Obamacare....... you have to buy your own insurance, and the govt will help you with the cost.

but if you're poor enough you can qualify for medicaid
