"[O-care] enrollment: healthcare experts urge sign-up despite uncertainty

People will be better off having entered marketplace exchanges even if options worsen under the Trump administration, experts say

...Sherry Glied, a New York University professor whose research has focused on health reform [said,]
“It could be that the replacement plan is just a horrible plan – just for the sake of argument – imagine that is true.
Even if that is true, there will be special efforts made to protect the people that are in.”

Glied also added that if Republicans dismantled state-based exchanges, for example, it could undermine people’s future chances of getting insurance.

“In some sense, before this all happened, you could say: ‘All right, if I don’t get in I pay the penalty and that’s terrible,’” Glied said.
“What could happen now is
if you don’t get in [by the Jan 31 deadline, which is TODAY],
and something happens to [your health in the future], you could never get in.” "

Indeed I do have a thread in the Finance forum about a PARTICULAR aspect of O-care.  I never said I didn't have a narrow-in-scope thread.

My thread in Finance is about the following particular topic: 
"What, realistically, is going to happen to the ACA/Obamacare at the end of January, and in the 1st Q of 2017"

If people want to discuss THAT topic, they should head on over to my thread, and opine away.

If, however, they want to discuss,
as I wrote above,
"the general health insurance situation in the US",
then people are welcome to 
"start a new thread about it in the Fatwallet FINANCE forum,"
as I wrote above.
