Ahhhhhh -- Friday!

More about yesterday's court decision upholding the new law, as well as more information about the waivers the government is granting to so-called limited benefit plans, so people can stay on those plans until they can buy comprehensive insurance through the Exchange with subsidies to make it affordable.

And an interesting piece of irony. One of the leading opponents to health reform is Alaska Senate Tea Party candidate Joe Miller apparently received Medicaid as a child. So government-run health care was okay for him but not okay for the rest of us? Hmmmm. (And this is not partisan -- I'd have posted this about a Democrat!!!).

Finally, USA Today says that 13% of kids WITH insurance are skipping health care due to costs. That's what you call under-insurance. Full implementation of health reform in 2014 can't come soon enough.

That's it. Seems like a light health news morning. But check back in later. Jennifer
