Page 16 of the House bill states:
"Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day" of the year the legislation becomes law.
So people who currently own private individual coverage won't be able to change it. Anyone who loses their current plan (usually through their employer) will NOT be allowed to buy individual plans from private carriers.
How is this "If you like your current health-care plan, you can keep it"?
So after this bill is passed no one will be allowed to buy individual private insurance.
Children on their parents' individual plans will not be able to purchase their own plan when they move out. How is that "keeping your current health-care plan"? It's not. It's just another lie Obama and the democrats are spewing to get ObamaCare rammed down our throats.
