I don't have a free phone, but Healthcare.gov is going to help some and the other I feel sorry for if they ever get the kinks out of it. Those that didn't change anything on their policy before this started can't keep their insurance....they have to pick a plan. Those who work for a company of more than 50, the company has to get health insurance for their employees. I really don't know what the ones on welfare will do....they can't buy their food or pay for medical so I am assuming the tax payers will still be footing the bills. The ones that do work, some have X amount of children; can get approximately $9,000.00 -$12,000.00 back at income tax time if they have worked part of the year. Some know how to work the system. Now that is just peachy isn't it? Why shouldn't they be made to pay some of the money back that was given to them for food stamps and medical? What happened to the American dream? Our government makes it hard for any company to stay in business.

Those that didn't change anything on their policy before Healhcare took effect, can keep their existing policy, those that change some or part of their existing policy will no longer have coverage and will have to get one eith Healthcare.cov. This is my undertanding and what was told me. You only have two insurance companie to choosefrom on that site. Sorry for the error.
