We all are trying to sort out exactly when (not whether at this point) changes to the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") will occur. About two months ago, in a post here, I shared some thoughts on why it made sense to keep on shopping if you were looking for insurance under one of the ACA-established exchanges. That entry goes on to share some thoughts on certain techniques you can use to make sure you know what kind of coverage you want in the future, when the dust settles from any new legislation.
Recently, The New York Times released an article that lays out a potential timeline for Obamacare repeal. Have a look and click the link beneath to review this latest projection on how, and when, you may begin to see some effects on your healthcare from any upcoming changes.
