    "Have you been enjoying the benefits of health care reform, like being able to keep your jobless adult child on your insurance plan, and getting mammograms and other preventive care without a co-pay?

    Major improvements are coming July 1 to another part of health care reform -- a limited program of reasonably priced coverage for people who can't buy private health insurance because they've been sick in the past (those pre-existing conditions insurers want nothing to do with). It's a stopgap until 2014, when everyone will be able to buy health insurance, regardless of their medical history. "

    Obviously we have public health which ignores pre existing. But under our private 'top up' schemes, they will treat 'pre existing' after three years.

    I for instance have hereditary problems with my eyes, meaning if I changed insurer and needed treatment in that three year window i would have to go public.

    Don't forget that he lowered COBRA payments to a reasonable amount and he now allows for FSA rollovers. Also, the end to annual maximums and lifetime maximums.
