After the United State Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Health Care Act is constitutional last week, those without political bias may have asked "will the ruling change anything"? Among the changes instituted since the provisions began taking effect in 2010 are the inclusion of kids up to the age of 26 on their parents' policies, the Illinois Pre-Existing Condition Insurance plan, and the eventual closing of the "donut hole" in Medicare Part D plans.
So the simple answer, according to Illinois Department of Insurance spokesman Mark Terry, is no, nothing changes for the consumer.
While the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the law was constitutional, criticsremarked the high court didn't say it was a good law. Mitt Romney helped create a similar law in Massachusetts.
