One of the biggest moves of this year, in terms of political gain, the United States passed historic health care reform, and there are some huge changes on the way for millions of Americans that are worried about getting insurance, or are paying a high price for coverage. While there are some major opponents to the latest healthcare reform passage, few critics can argue with some of the big time changes that are coming for people in 2014.
If that wasn’t a big enough change to look forward to, consider that children and adults with pre-existing conditions will now have access to insurance coverage and will not be dropped or banned for having an illness before signing an insurance plan. The biggest change in healthcare for 2014 is that it will be completely illegal to discriminate against those that have pre-existing conditions.
Yes, there are still some things to work out, and educating the general public has been hard due in large part to media outlets, protests, and just lack of knowledge. However, the future is looking bright for both small business, and the average American, as change truly starts to settle in the health care market.
