Obamacare…after the ruling

Most Americans would agree with Dr. Leonard Kirschner that the federal  health- care law is not perfect; they’d likely say it’s a disaster (“Health-care  law does good,” Letters, Thursday).

Because insurers were forced to allow individuals under 26 to stay on their  parents’ policies and implement no-exclusions for children with pre-existing  conditions, at least 34 states are no longer offering child-only policies,  leaving many without affordable coverage at all and families with higher  premiums.
