Five Benefits of the New Health Care Law
Date:5/16/2011

/b>: Health plans could exclude young adults from their parent's health insurance when the individual reached a certain age or became a full-time student.

Now: Young adults can remain in their parent's health plan until they turn 26. "For young people, it's important that they have health insurance so that they can focus on their career and not worry about where they are going to get coverage," said Alvarez.

4.  Preventive Care and Services

Previously: Some health plans were allowed to charge beneficiaries for the costs of certain preventive care measures.

Now Some health plans are now required to provide different types of preventive care services without co-pays, coinsurance or deductibles. Some of these services include mammograms, colonoscopies, vaccinations and prenatal care. "Because of the cost, people would often use preventive care services at half of the recommended rate," said Alvarez.

5.  New Medicare Benefits

Previously: Beneficiaries of Medicare drug plans that reached the gap in coverage called the "Donut Hole" had to pay for the cost of the prescriptions they needed.

Now: People with high prescription drug costs that reach the "Donut Hole" receive a 50% discount on brand-name medications covered by their plan.  "It's a big step towards closing the 'Donut Hole' within the next 10 years," said Alvarez.
