  •  Most people won't be affected by the exchange (3+ / 0-)

    Most will continue on their own employer based insurance. Many employers may seek to buy insurance on the exchange at more competitive rates.

    But as with shopping for anything there will be trade-offs regarding features of each plan.

    •  it's like that in MA (0+ / 0-)

      most people barely noticed when our healthcare law took effect...you just kept the insurance you already had.

      If you didn't have insurance, it was different. And some people found plans that were cheaper though not as cheap it seems to me as many I"ve seen mentioned that are coming up through ACA exchanges. Probably MA is just very expensive for healthcare.

      Anyway, with the ACA, the change in being able to get insurance with pre-existing conditions is a big one even for those with insurance. Once you are middle aged many people have some condition...if you move work up to now you'd loose insurance and maybe insurability. But not now.

      Most people will know people who will benefit from the pre-existing condition requirement in the ACA.

      So even people with insurance will hopefully be hearing and experiencing the good of the ACA.
