1. All these provisions of the new HCA that have just kicked in

Over the last few weeks will be making impact in the upcoming election and the rePIGs are probably shitting in their collective pants not knowing how these will play out. I bet this is the thing they dread the most. That people will get a better feel for the healthcare reform and the rePIG arguments against is will lose whatever hold it had on the foaming mouth idiots they call supporters.

2. IIRC this is ONLY for new policies. Existing policies still screw women.

18 months to go until we ALL get treated fairly.

4. This Change is Effective for Most People on 1-1-2013

Plans are required to make the change on the first renewal on or after 8-1-2012. Since most plans are on a calendar year schedule the improvements will be made on 1-1-2013. They will need to be communicated as part of companies' open enrollment materials usually distributed in September and October so all employees will at least know about the changes before the election.

5. My wife and I were excited about the birth control coverage kicking in today

bummed out that we have to wait a few more months until our existing policy is renewed. *sigh* Oh well.
