Health Care Reform: Ending The 3 Most Important Myths Of Obamacare 5
The health care reform adds an amount of health care taxes that insurance companies will have to collect and pay, but will only pass them on to consumers.
The mandate will not greatly reduce the insured
During the first years of health reform, the mandate is really very weak. The mandate says that everyone must get health insurance or pay a fine (a tax). What this will do is to make healthy people stay out of the way and wait for the mandate to reach the point where they are finally forced to buy health insurance. People with chronic health conditions who previously could not obtain health insurance will enter the health sector in early 2014.By the end of this year, the cost of the policies will increase by 2015. I can guarantee it, because healthy young people will not be motivated to join the policies. They will not see the reward of following an expensive policy, while people with chronic diseases will enter the policies and increase costs.
The goal of health reform is just a matter of semantics
The last part is, one of the main things, and it is curious, I saw in the first two years of 2010 and 11, one of the main things listed in the Obama administration’s documentation: health care reform would help reduce the cost we would see in the future if we do nothing today. This has been emphasized repeatedly. This is how they had reduced health care costs that would reduce future costs. Not today, but it would reduce what we would pay in the future if we didn’t do anything about it now.Well, that’s great, in ten years we will pay less than we could have paid. And we all know how accurate future projections are. Meanwhile, we all pay more today, and we will pay even more in 2014 and more in 2015 and 2016. People will be very upset about this.
These three myths, that health care reform will only affect the uninsured, that it will not affect Medicare recipients, and that ObamaCare will reduce health care costs, are just that. They are myths. There is nothing for them. It is really important that you pay attention to what is happening with the health care reform, because there are more changes in this year 2013. Knowing how to position yourself to be in the right place so you can make the best decision soon 2014 will be really important for everybody.
