Time is one of the most important commodities of life. The quality of that time is very much contingent on an individualís health. To a certain degree, individuals can exert an important influence over the quality of their health by practicing a healthy lifestyle.
However, medical care also plays an important role. This section of our website is devoted to looking at all aspects of healthy living from lifestyle choices and wellness, to the medical laws that affect your insurance coverage and health care.
Senior Health Care: The current major health care issue for not only Seniors but everybody is the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" (also known as "Obamacare"). The new health reform law (in 2014) will cover an additional 32 million people when fully-implemented by 2019. This is due to increased coverage, a Medical Exchange, and a Medicaid expansion system. The Central Budget Office (CBO) estimates that the new law will cost $938 billion over ten years.
Reforms in Health Care: On July 2, 2013, the Obama administration announced a delay in the "Affordable Care Act's" employer mandate. This means that businesses with over 50 employees will have an extra year before they are required to provide their employees with health care or risk a penalty. The employer mandate will now take effect on January 1, 2015 instead of January 1, 2014.
On February 10, 2014, the Obamaís administration (Treasury Department) said employers with 50 to 99 full-time workers won't have to comply with the law's requirement to provide insurance or pay a fee until 2016. Companies with more workers could avoid some penalties in 2015 if they showed they were offering coverage to at least 70% of full-time workers
