Healthcare Bill Provisions Taking Effect Sept. 23

Wherever you stand politically on the issue of healthcare reform, now’s a good time to get familiar with how it will affect you and your family. Several provisions of the bill, formally known as the Affordable Care Act, take effect tomorrow, Sept. 23, and some are specifically focused on children, including:

  • Children under 19 can no longer be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions.
  • Children can stay on their parents’ healthcare plans until they are 26.

Also, insurance companies will need to provide some preventive care, including mamograms, free of charge. For a full timeline of when each piece of the bill goes into effect, click here.

    I also thought again about my last statement. I am at a disadvantage in my job by not knowing enough about economic levers of power. So it makes sense that if I were a national level advocate for policy as an organization, I would want to know something about those levers and how they worked. Same-same for military levers.

    I wish to show appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this instance. Just after checking through the world-wide-web and coming across techniques which are not pleasant, I thought my life was over. Living devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you have sorted out as a result of your entire blog post is a crucial case, and ones that might have adversely damaged my career if I had not encountered your blog. Your main knowledge and kindness in maneuvering every aspect was useful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thanks very much for the professional and results-oriented help. I won’t think twice to propose your blog to anybody who wants and needs tips on this issue.

    Apologize for my noobie question. Could you tell me what this site skin is? I truly like it. Or is it custom one, perhaps? I think it will be a good option for Google ads too. I¡¯d like it if you can let me know about this. Thanks.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ¡®Mixview¡¯ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you¡¯re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of ¡°neighbors¡± will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune ¡°Social¡± is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
