They will never ever make the 2014 deadline. We have had some HIPAA mandates which were to be effective beginning in 2012 which are still being postponed. Private insurance carriers are good to go but Medicare isn’t.
Your idea isn’t crazy at all IMO. People who want insurance are going to get it on their own, those that don’t won’t. I don’t mind so much everyone having to have some level of coverage what I object to is BO telling me what I need to have covered. Personally I think all policies should be high deductible and primarily for inpatient services only, no carve outs to third party, no case management for outpatient services and no networks. Cut out everyone in the middle. Most doctors I know and work with will negotiate outpatient fees if you want to pay cash and there is no insurance paperwork necessary. I also have a real problem with pre-existing conditions being covered. Probably partially because it’s something I don’t have to worry about, but also because there simply is not enough money in the world to cover everything for everybody.

Well I have a problem with both. ALL of my conditions are pre-existing, so I will be force to pay for health insurance that I can’t use.
Secondly, I have a RELIGIOUS OBJECTION to insurance and ALL Western Medical care, but they don’t care about that.
