Does any part of health reform take effect before 2014

(CNN) – Health care reform is a done deal, but you still have a lot of questions. It's a job for our chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who joined us on Thursday's American Morning to answer the following questions:

Question 1: Will the CHIP program continue to receive adequate funding?

Question 2: What section or language in the bill limits the benefits of the bill to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants?

Question 3: If a young person is in school and off their parents' insurance can they be returned to it with this health care reform?

Question 4: Does any part of health reform take effect before 2014?

    I would love for you to do some investigation on Autism. I have a daughter on the spectrum. She is 28, ABA did not help her at all but floortime and sensory integration treatment did. The story this morning on Hallie Moss (not sure if I got the name right) gave me the idea of writing to you. I became an Occupational Therapist very late in life to help children with autism, but i get sickened by supposed professionals who assume that aba is the only way to go
    thank you
    I love watching your reports

    Hi-Thank you for making the world a better place. If you can I'd like to know, is it true that people can recover from MRSA. And if lso, what are your recommendations for treatmentt. I'm on Bactrim and have been for a long time, but the dosage has gone up recently. My Dr. no longer accepts Medicare, and I was recently put on their program, but still am looking for someone who will take Medicare. I use peroxide and Oxy wipes on my sores, they only show up on my lower arms.

    Thank you for your time.
