This will be the first in a series of informational articles on the changes to the USA's healthcare system brought about by the legislation referred to in the link posted above.

We'd like to keep the posts limited to factual information from reliable sources and not allow the topic to become a soapbox nor to cause hard feelings between our members. Given that we're all here because of health problems, this is bound to be a 'hot topic' and fairly frightening to many of us.

Another caveat is that none of us speak legalese nor are we qualified to say definitively how any facet of this Bill will directly affect any particular person or situation. Oh my! That means we're going to have to add another disclaimer: "Of course I am no doctor and am also not a lawyer, but ...." Posted Image
