WASHINGTON - This could be the year that things finally turn around for President Barack Obama's health care law. Or it could start with another round of glitches that vex consumers and leave Republicans crowing, "We told you so."
Big improvements are in store for people with health problems, because federal law now forbids insurers from turning them away.
But that benefit is secured by requiring virtually every American to get covered, which many regard as an imposition.
