    all this train wreck will do is put us on the same path that is bankrupting all those socialist nations.
    I will refuse to pay the fine/tax and hope to be the first to get thrown in jail refusing to do so

    Medicaid for me, though it begins later in this state. Don't have parent's insurance as an option and not eligible for subsidies.

    That's my own view as well, although individuals have every right to engage in civil disobedience against the law. Any law that can't survive a little civil disobedience shouldn't exist.

    I would like to correct something.

    I have a family member that is autistic but not disabled enough to get assistance because of it . He is taking college very slowly because he has to. Without ACA he would not be covered because he would not achieve the proper number of college units to stay on the parents health care plan. On top of that a pre-existing condition would screw him over for private insurance.


    So coverage on a parents plan is not a foregone conclusion.

    What will you do now that the ACA sign up has started?[W:44]

    Insured through my employer and while the cost has increased significantly over the past few years and benefits it's still better than what many have and well above the ACA minimums.

    So I'm staying put.

    So coverage on a parents plan is not a foregone conclusion.
    Under normal circumstances perhaps, however Autism according to the National Autism Association and the CDC is considered a disability.
    Autism Fact Sheet - National Autism Association

    There are state laws that govern autism so depending on what state your family member resides, there still may be coverage available.
    Autism and Insurance Coverage State Laws


    The chances are much higher there is some type of coverage available for those with autism than not.
