How Will House Health Care Bill Affect San Diego?

I have two questions regarding Gary SD Clincs' response:

I believe that a professional organization that I am in offers a group insurance plan. They are not my employer, but they offer a discounted group insurance as a part of membership. Will such programs be eliminated?

Also, I am still looking for clarity on the first part of my question. Taxes are the only thing that everyone is typically subject to; even that is conditional to working and has an opportunity to opt out. How is this requirement to have insurance going to be executed? Is it a 'tax'? Will i be jailed if I don't pay it?

How Will House Health Care Bill Affect San Diego?

Two key point that I do not think were addressed:

1) Car insurance is required in every state (not just California) WHEN someone is operating a car. No car, no insurance necessary. This healthcare requirement is requiring every human (or maybe adult) to purchase healthcare. There is nothing else in this country that requires every citizen to do anything.

2) As it presently stands now, people have the option to use a number of group policies and have the option to opt out of employee-provided policies. From what I hear, it will be required to purchase healthcare from your employer. Please clarify if this is an accurate statement. That is a significant difference from what many, even the President himself, has said w/r/t current policies and ways of purchasing insurance not changing.

Please advise
