Health provisions begin phasing in Thursday
USA Today

Several key consumer protections under the nation’s new health law begin taking effect Thursday — six months after its enactment. Insurers can no longer set a dollar limit on the amount of care they’ll provide over a person’s lifetime or deny coverage to sick children. Young adults can stay on their parents’ health plans until age 26. And consumers get greater rights to appeal insurers’ decisions.
