Making private Insurance Illegal? See page 16- Open Thread

Thanks to tomorrow’s IBD’s editorial writers, for July 16, There is the following quote from page 16 of the Health care reform bill.

  • “Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer
  • offering such coverage does not enrolle any individual in
  • such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the
  • first day” of the year the legislation becomes law.
  • So we can all keep our coverage, just as promised — with, of
  • course, exceptions: Those who currently have private individual
  • coverage won’t be able to change it.  Norwill those who leave a company
  • to work for themselves be free to buy individual plans from
  • private carriers.
