Changes to the health care system have been implemented, and there are no doubt more to come. However, most of the changes to come will likely only be in areas where the government is able to garner bipartisan support. Since there is so little agreement on anything in politics these days, those changes may be hard fought and hard won. Perhaps politicians should remember a good health care system is for the ultimate betterment of the country as a whole.
There are bound to be more changes before 2014, but you might find them to be small ones. Without a stable economy, making changes to programs that may cost the government money are likely to be few and far between. This is the perfect time to start checking out health insurance quotes. Be prepared when 2014 rolls around and have a policy in place that you have control over.
