About half of you will more than likely face changes in your healthcare coverage although taxpayers were promised they could keep their present healthcare if they so desired. In this Wall Street Journal article the story is told of a failed promise.
Draft regulations being developed by the Obama administration say more than half of employer health care plans may lose their grandfathered status and be required to comply with the health overhaul bill approved March 23.
The guidelines are likely to touch off fresh disputes between President Obama and opponents of the health care bill. Mr. Obama promised as part of his health overhaul that Americans who liked their insurance coverage could keep it. The regulations govern so-called grandfathered status, which allowed employers to keep offering a plan even if it doesn't meet all the bill's requirements.
The regulations, being written by the U.S. Health and Human Services, Labor and Treasury departments, are expected to be finalized soon.
"These rules are extremely strict," said James Gelfand, health policy director at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which had opposed the bill. "Almost no plan is going to be able to maintain grandfathered status."
