Is there going to be a government plan offered?
According to healthcare.gov(obamacare) it will cost your employer too much to cover you and will offer you the alternative(obamacare). At some point health insurence companies will be pushed out completely.
Doctors will stop accepting medicare and medicade patients. If this does all go through as many as 80% of doctors are said to drop out of the medical field.
You can see how socilized medicine works in other countries and expect the same if not worse here.
People will die waiting for simple procedures that we get now rather quickly.
If you do not want to buy health coverage you will be taxed or penalized upon your tax refund check through the IRS.
