Quotes-start.png The Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama was supposed to rein in runaway health-care costs. How's that going? Not as advertised. Even before the ACA takes full effect in 2014, today's mandates - such as a requirement that employers offer coverage of adult children up to the age of 26 and that some plans provide free preventive care - must be a factor in the cost spurt. The Kaiser report estimates 2.3 million adult children were added to their parents' employer-sponsored plans because of the law. Quotes-end.png
