Health Care Bill in a Flow Chart

August 17, 2009 - by Donny Shaw

Here’s a good flowchart from Nick Beaudrot showing how the health care bill (H.R. 3200) would expand insurance coverage:

This is the basic skeleton of the bill, and knowing it is crucial for understanding how all the finer points in the bill fit in. Where the chart says “new consumer protections,” it is referring to the minimum standards for a qualified health benefits plan, which, once the bill takes effect, would have to be all insurance that is not grandfathered. All the information about these standards is contained in Title I.

    if the gov sponsored health care bill works as well as the cash for clunkers we will have to stop it because its so popular that the medical establishment will be overwhelmed?! gov sponsored health care is a great idea but implementation is complicated. The president needs to slow down, do the doable important things, like no more pre-existing conditions clauses, let insusrance co. offer product nationwide or not at all. Small bus and individuals get the same premiums as corp. and last but not least those w/o insurance get to buy into medicare on a sliding scale.
