No changes in US health care while court decides
San Francisco Chronicle

Nothing much changes for Americans’ medical care while the Supreme Court mulls the fate of President Barack Obama’s health care law. The wait might take three months. Decisions can come anytime, but complex cases argued in the spring often emerge near the end of the session, in late June. In the meantime, parts of the law already in effect won’t change. That includes the provision that lets young adults stay on their parents’ insurance until they turn 26 and a requirement that health plans cover preventive care without charging a co-pay.
