Why do you not see pre-existing and age 26 going away? A federal appeals court may any day now uphold a lower court ruling that the ACA is unconstitutional. Then, it presumably would go to the Supreme Court for final adjudication with a ruling possible by next summer. If they uphold the prior rulings, about 21,000,000 people will be without healthcare, immediately. Many of those will be unable to get replacement healthcare due to pre-existing conditions or they will simply not be able to afford the cost. This isn’t getting much press right now due to everything else that’s in the news, but if it happens, it is going to be catastrophic.Honestly no matter what happens with healthcare in the US I don’t ever see the preexisting cause or coverage until 26 going away.
We are very fortunate to have health coverage until Medicare kicks in, my DH complains bitterly that they switched to Medicare half way through his career. I guess it’s all about expectations. He specifically chose his career looking for a pension and early retirement. He is a lucky man that he loves his job so much so that he will do an extra 3.5 years with no further retirement accumulation while paying in an extra 20k/yr towards his pension.
I would prefer he retire yesterday but I am starting to get excited about making plans for our future travels.
I hope you’re right but I don’t share your optimism.
