Sign up for healthcare

How thankful we should be that our government has finally demonstrated the will to attack healthcare issues.

How thankful we should be that our government has finally demonstrated the will to attack healthcare issues.

The Affordable Care Act is just a first step in correcting the issues facing the healthcare industry.

Yes, additional tweaks are needed. Usually, any new concept or product, whether from government or private industry, requires modifications to improve.

People with regular healthcare services are neither as easily nor frequently subject to the shock of a severe medical issue and there shouldn’t be any hesitancy to seek medical services.

Young adults, who can’t get covered under their employer’s plan may stay on their parents medical plans to the age of 26.

As parents, we need to encourage adults 26 and over to apply for coverage.

People of low income will find a rebate to pay their medical premiums at tax time.

I can understand the confusion of not knowing whether to believe the relentless barrage of unjust accusations or downright untruths against the ACA.

Please go to www.whitehouse.gov/healthreform. I urge all uninsured and especially the young to get covered during the 2014 open enrollment period that ends March 31.
