Hooray for Obamacare!
Even though it is not fully implemented, my family has already benefitted from Obamacare. My daughter is in a profession where she can make as much money freelancing as she can working full time, so she planned, and made sure that she had enough savings and quit her job to begin her freelance career. She felt that while she is young and unburdened it would be the ideal time in her career to explore different types of work in her field. She immediately had companies contacting her to engage her services, so all is well in that regard.
Unfortunately she was a bit naive in regards to buying health insurance. In the past 3 years since graduating from college she has not had a problem purchasing her own health insurance on two occasions when she had gaps while waiting for employer provided health care, so didn't think it would be a problem now. However, this time the largest insurer in California turned her down. (I'm not sure if she has received the letter yet telling her why)
Fortunately, because of Obamacare we were able to add her back onto my husband's policy provided by his employer since she is not yet 26. Of course, it is only a stop-gap measure, but it means that she will have continuous coverage and will be able to buy coverage through Cobra if necessary after she turns 26 to get her through until 2014 when the pre-existing conditions denial will be ended.
