The final rules and regulations of the Affordable Care Act are coming very quickly. New fees for insurers and policy holders, previously unknown, have been disclosed. The target date for full implementation of the law is Jan 1, 2014. At that time all U.S. citizens and legal residents will be required to purchase government approved health insurance or pay a fine/fee/tax. What is the penalty and will it be enough to persuade those healthy uninsured to purchase insurance? What will premiums look like in 2014? We’ll talk about the Medicare changes that are being proposed in Washington and how that could affect Seniors, short and long term. Join us for an informative and spirited discussion.
