It's the most complex law since Medicare.
WSBT examined topics related to health care reform and what it means for all of us..
Our last one – health and religion.
For example, do religious institutions have to provide free contraceptive coverage under Obamacare. That is a major debate right now.
The Obama administration is working on new guidelines allowing religious-affiliated organizations opposing contraception to opt out of that federal mandate.
Groups insured, such as students at religious colleges, would be required to let their insurer know they would like contraception coverage.
The insurer would then notify enrollees that it is providing them with no-cost contraceptive coverage through separate individual health insurance policies.
It's a work in progress says Al Gutierrez, president and CEO of St. Joseph Regional Medical Center.
“Right now, I would categorize our relationship with Washington as a constant dialogue,” Gutierrez said. “We do feel that people are listening in Washington, and rulings continue to be made to respect our right to religious freedom and how we manage our employees and our organization. We are still very optimistic these matters will be reconciled.”
Gutierrez describes this as health dialogue and very spirited in Washington right now.
