I didn’t want to put this in the political section because I only want to hear about actual experiences with the new US healthcare law, not how evil or saintly President Obama is. Since that probably won’t happen, I’ll put in in the political thread. Feel free to express an opinion about how you think the law is working but please stay away from rants about the lawmakers or the president. Let’s just keep the focus on the actual healthcare. My own opinion on the new law is that I’m not too crazy about what was done or the execution of it but I am very glad that something was done. I hope that we can make significant improvements over the years but we have to start somewhere and at least we’ve started. I was already a Blue Cross member and didn’t have to change much except pay a lot more (but that has happened before without a new law). I didn’t lose any doctors or facilities close to me so except for being a little lighter in the pocket, I haven’t noticed any change. Luckily, I’ve been very healthy (except for one nasty incident 14 years ago) and have not used my insurance much over the years so I’m kind of clueless to any changes going on (and I hope to keep it that way) other than what I hear. So, what has everyone’s experience been with this? I’m curious about people that used the government website too.
