The law requires insurers to cover $40,000 a year of "applied behavioral analysis" for children through age 18. Many parents credit the intensive therapy with making dramatic improvements in their children.No mention of how much premiums will increase to provide this $40,000 benefit but no doubt many will believe this is free.
Jenny Backus from the Department of Health and Human Services says "the insurance companies can't cap off about how much benefits you can get." and "insurance companies can't discriminate against children with pre-existing conditions."And for those on , the so-called donut hole is getting smaller.Seniors will get free preventive benefits. They'll also have access to the end-of-life counseling that gave birth to all that talk of death panels. Doctors will be urged to talk to older patients about their end-of-life wishes.
