Health Care Reform 2010

Following are links to concise and helpful summaries of immediate and long-term provisions of the new health care act that I found in The Washington Post and The New York Times; though there is some overlap, each document contains some important information the others do not.

You will be eligible for a group insurance plan almost immediately (less than 90 days) even if you have pre-existing conditions.

I know we all still have questions about how everything will work and how much it will cost, but I hope this gives some help.
