"What is going on with healthcare reform? What's going to happen?"
Under the The Patient Protection and Affordable care act or ACA passed in March, 2010:
By 2014, you will be able to compare and buy insurance on a health insurance exchange. The exchange will offer a choice of approved insurance plans. It will also help you find the best plan for you and your family.
In 2014, a person with income below 400% of the federal poverty level (currently $43,560 for a single person) can get a subsidy to buy health insurance. The subsidy will be higher for those with lower income. If you are under 65 and make less than 133% of the FPL (currently $12,305 for a single person) you can get Medicaid in 2014.
