>>ACA Healthcare Enrollment Opens Today
(Springfield, IL) -- People can start signing up for healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act today. There's been a bit of confusion surrounding the ACA, but officials say the most important thing is that people will no longer have to fret over getting a massive bill after a medical emergency. Just about everyone in the nation is required to pick up health insurance by the end of the year. Coverage rates will vary based on individual needs.
>>Doctors Set To Retire After ACA Kicks In
(Bloomington, IL) -- There could be fewer doctors to care for a growing number of patients as coverage under the Affordable Care Act gets underway. Bloomington Doctor John Wieland says that's because some doctors are preparing to call it quits.
He says those near retirement age just don't want to deal with the hassle adjusting to new regulations and reporting requirements. Wieland thinks nurse practitioners will likely step in and handle much of the care that doctors currently provide.
