*How to apply for help in paying for insurance?
*Will your healthcare change if you work for a big company or a small company?
*How will the legislation affect you if you receive individual insurance, if you're uninsured, or if you are
on Medicare?
*What new protections are you supposed to get from the worst health insurance practices?
*Why did Congress decided everyone should be required to get health insurance?
