On the reform bill, I've been reading through about 300 pages of this and I would love some feed back. I've seen support for this, and I heard "free healthcare", but what I'm seeing seems to be just a little different. I'm seeing more of a Mandatory Health insurance Option, not nescissarily giving us more and leaving alot of open ends?
I think what I've been reading with public option part is really more of a grand-father clause. That if you have insurance the you'l be grandfather in to keep it, but otherwise the only option after that time period is gov. mandatory Health Ins., or the will ensue penalties?
One section said that elegibility for medicaid would apply to persons making 1133 1/3% below poverty level??? How would that work and has anyone seen that section or had it brought up?
One of the grant $'s is for in home medical care. (like this for grant and research, because to have a loved one in a home is financial death then physcial death, not to mention that patients that can be kept in their home do better and it brings expenses way down) This could really benefit both the individual and ins./gov./ dr.s in the long run.
Please, more thoughts and facts about this bill.
