Authorities also said medical practices should be structured and that they will be paid. Government will mandate exactly what health insurance with what benefits the workers and the employees that they will have to pay for. The act imposes tax penalties on them if they decide not to comply with the new law. Authorities has dictated insurance companies with exactly health insurance that they must sell.
