I heard this on the news this morning before work, couldn't believe it so I looked it up on the internet. Our new Health Care Bill taking effect as of January 1,2011 states we will need a prescription to purchase; allergy/sinus, antibiotic products, anti-diarrheals, laxatives, hemorrhoidal meds, cough, cold or flu meds, digestive aids, baby rash ointments/creams, pain relief, sleep aids, stomach remedies, anti-itch/insect bite, and many more we are use to getting off the counter. Now we will have to go to the DR. pay him/her to write a prescription for an asprin or whatever and pay the druggist extra because it is a prescription. This is not setting well with me. I wonder what else is hidden in there. If I am reading this correctly, if you have the health reimbursment form of insurance you will not be reimbersed unless you follow the new law. The next big health care reform-related change for tax-advantaged medical accounts takes effect Jan. 1, 2013, when the money employees can set aside in these plans will be capped at $2,500.
