Very interesting implications for society at large. When this gets implemented into a holodeck architecture I wonder…. will the decreasing abilities of our youth to effectively interact with each other on a physical basis be exacerbated? What implications are there for social interaction, and our ability to interact with those cultures which are not as advanced technically? Will the increased ability to “tune in and drop out” open us up to predation by enemies who are focused on the “here and now”?
From a positive perspective, however, I can imagine that there could be meaningful improvements in the lives of those who are incapable of social interaction, either due to mental defects or loss of mobility. As one of the older members of society, I can foresee that there might be tremendous benefits for my generation as it ages.

“This is a parody site! It is not a real government website, but it has had more views than Healthcare.gov.”
Make sure that you attempt to fill out the forms… the selections are hilarious.
Healthcare more expensive.
“I was completely happy with the insurance I had before…. I’m being forced to choose from a bunch of plans that have coverage I don’t want.”
So much for the Obama promise of being able to keep the plan you currently have.
An apocalyptic view of our future:
The forecast shortage of doctors has become a real problem. It started in 2014 when the ACA cut $716 billion from Medicare to accommodate 30 million newly ‘insured’ people through an expansion of Medicaid. More important, the predicted shortage of 42,000 primary-care physicians and that of specialists (such as heart surgeons) was vastly underestimated. It didn’t take into account the ACA’s effect on doctors retiring early, refusing new patients or going into concierge medicine. These estimates also ignored the millions of immigrants who would be seeking a physician after having been granted legal status.
