With the new healthcare law taking effect in 2014, many states are starting up health exchanges. Some states aren’t interested in operating their own exchanges, so they’re letting the federal government handle it. Either way works, and will allow a large number of people to get the healthcare coverage that they really need. The goal is to make sure that people who couldn’t afford coverage before are able to have insurance for themselves and their families. Not everyone is a proponent of the healthcare law, but many people are grateful that they will be able to buy coverage.
That’s especially true for people with pre-existing conditions. Until the new healthcare law was created, people who had a previously diagnosed illness couldn’t get insurance in most cases. The cost was simply too high for them, unless they were already covered when they got sick. Now, with the health exchanges, everyone will be covered even if they’re already ill when they apply for insurance, or they’ve been treated for a serious medical condition in the past. That can help people live longer and better lives.
