“On the six-month anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama leads a backyard discussion on the Patient’s Bill of Rights and hears from real Americans who are already benefitting from health reform.”
Among other things, when the Patients Bill of Rights kicks in tomorrow, young adults can remain on their parents’ health insurance plan until they’re 26; insurance companies are prohibited from cutting off your coverage just because you made a mistake on your application; no more lifetime limits and restrictions on annual limits kick in; discrimination against kids with pre-existing conditions is banned; and much more. Obviously, this is all really good stuff, and we have the Democrats to thank for it. And remember, if Republicans get back in power, they’ll try to repeal all of this. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen!
