The Affordable Health Care Act: What It Will Do For You Beginning in 2014 — Podcast August 12, 2013

Obamacare: The Best Is Yet to Come. Democratic Perspective’s Mike Cosentino, Gary LaMaster and Steve Williamson continue their review of the Affordable Health Care Act. What can we expect beginning next year? Lots of good stuff: restrictions on annual payout limits; free (no co-pay ) annual checkups and other free wellness and preventive medicine services; equal insurance costs for women; insurance exchanges where those not covered by employers can shop for a range of plans and providers without any confusing fine print, elimination of the Medicare doughnut hole, coverage for the self-employed who can’t currently get or afford coverage, and reduced insurance costs for all. Not bad for a piece of legislation that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives has tried to repeal some 40 times.
