Just one more year and the health exchange will be in place. I am so hopeful about this.
Here is a document created by AHIRC (Artists Health Insurance Resource Center). While it is particularly focused on those in the arts, it is a really good overview and explanation of how the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will (hopefully) improve the choices available to everyone in the United States.
What I hope it will mean for me personally is that I'll be able to have good, affordable health care and insurance irrespective of a day job.
