What mandates await?

The Spokesman-Review
 

Now that ObamaCare is law, if it requires that all Americans buy health insurance, what level of coverage must we buy?

My wife and I are in our 50s, active and healthy, and have a personal health policy with a high $7,500 deductible that does not cover prescriptions, dental care, preventive care or eye care. This policy fits our current lifestyle and budget.

Will ObamaCare require us to purchase a policy with a lower deductible, with coverage for prescriptions, preventative care, including haircuts and manicures? If so, then his famous quote, “If you like your current policy you can keep it,” simply is not true.

Only after the fact will we learn the true details of this health care debacle.
