There’s been one consistent finding among all the polls and surveys seeking opinions on health reform: most respondents don’t know much about it and there are many misperceptions and misconceptions about reform.
The good folk at Kaiser Family Foundation have put together an interactive tool to help remedy that situation. The YouToon application shows how reform will impact employers – large, small, and mid-sized; individuals and families, the well-off, middle class, and poor.
It’s easy to understand and a quick read too.
There’s a more “you-specific” tool here that is focused on individuals and families, not employers.
And the Washington Post has an interactive site where you can plug in details on income, family size, source of insurance, and marriage status and get specific info on how reform affects you – specifically – and what, if any, tax impact it has.
One thought on “How Health Reform Will Affect You”
I think the subsidies will be the most impactful and are the least understood part of the Affordable Care Act. Many people are going to see very significant subsidies from the government. I hope it has been planned out well, and paid for, because once those subsidies start, its going to be very hard to stop them.
