All eyes have been focused recently on the functionality of the HealthCare.gov website, but many challenges are in store that will impact tens of millions of Americans who are being told their coverage is not affected by the law. They will face significant and costly changes to their health plans and access to doctors, either due to the health law itself or because of subsequent regulations written by the Obama administration. President Obama said this spring: “…for the 85 to 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance…their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better, more secure than it was before. Full stop.” But that will not be their experience.
