Some of these changes are that most citizens who are legal residence will be able to have a health insurance. People will be able to purchase coverage at an affordable cost. Big cooperation and organizations will have to provide health care insurance for their employees the only exemption of small business that won’t be penalizing for not providing health care for their employees. The new regulation will be that everyone will be cover no matter and regardless of previews health status. There will be more support for prevention and public health activities will include wellness. Insurance programs will provide the communities with living assistance services. Health policy reform its vision is to increase its availability to care, prescribe drugs that everybody can afford and get the support of the medical insurance to do their part (Cafasso, 2011). The stakeholders in the health care reform will be the consumers this includes patients, hospitals, employers, insurance industry, representative from hospitals, medical and pharmaceutical companies, nurses, veterans, and military personal.
