President Obama opened his speech Thursday by saying he doesn’t want Thursday’s decision to uphold the Affordable Health Care Act to be viewed by its politics.

“Whatever the politics, today’s decision was a victory for people all over this country, whose lives will be more secure because of this law and the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold it,” he said.

According to Obama, if you already have health insurance, you will keep it. He said the law makes the insurance more secure and more affordable.

As part of the act, insurance companies will no longer be able to impose lifetime limits on the amount of care you receive, no longer discriminate against children with preexisting conditions, no longer drop coverage if you get sick and no longer able to hike up premiums without reason.

They will be required to provide free preventative care, rebates to nearly 13 million Americans, adults under 26 will be able to stay on their parent’s health care and seniors will receive discounts on prescriptions.

Obama said all benefits will continue for Americans with health insurance, and for those without it, starting in 2014, the states take be designing their own options, known as “exchanges.”

Within these exchanges, insurance companies will no longer be able to discriminate on any American with a preexisting health condition or charge more to people because of their sex. They also won’t be able to bill anyone into bankruptcy.

Obama said a credit will be provided to those who can’t afford the premiums, but those who can afford it will be required to purchase insurance.

Obama said, “Today, the Supreme Court upheld the principle if people, who can afford insurance should take the responsibility to buy health insurance.”
