Uninsured shun ObamaCare

The goal of ObamaCare is to cover the uninsured. The effect of ObamaCare so far seems to be un-insuring those already covered and then re-enrolling some of them. A pair of new surveys say that the years-long effort to get Americans without health coverage to sign up for ObamaCare has fallen flat.

Inmates getting coverage under ObamaCare, as states shift cost to feds

WASHINGTON ? The Obama administration often touts that people with pre-existing conditions and countless others can now get covered under ObamaCare. But there's another group that's starting to benefit from the law -- prison inmates

Taxpayer Tab for 4 State Obamacare Exchanges: $474 Million and Counting



Four states that spent nearly a half-billion dollars in federal money to build their own state Obamacare exchanges are facing a tough decision ? collect even more federal dollars to salvage their websites or transition over to the federal exchange, scrapping the sites and throwing away the money that has already been spent.



Currently, the federal system serves 36 states, more than the federal health care reform plan had expected, reports Politico. But the sites for the states of Massachusetts, Oregon, Nevada and Maryland are all considered failures, and the government must either write them checks to give them a second chance, or for less money include them with other states that use the federal website to service Obamacare plans.

The Republican National Committee earlier this year filed public-records requests in Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Oregon to seek information about compensation and vacation time for the state exchange directors, many of whom have resigned, reports The New York Times.

Big Increases in Obamacare Premiums and Deductibles Coming in November

The Obama administration postponed a portion of the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act in order to avoid paying the political consequences of a market disruption in the group insurance sector. If new premium pricing proposals from insurer filings in the states of Virginia and Washington come to pass, the White House may have no way out of accountability for their health-care reform folly

When Obamacare first rolled out last fall, the failure of the federal and state exchanges were only the first signs of disaster. Premiums spiked upward in both the individual and group markets, and insurers raised deductibles and narrowed provider networks to save themselves money. Millions of people lost their existing insurance plans in the individual market, and many ended up in plans that either didn?t fit or cost far more than they spent in the past

Related: Obama?s Biggest Lie: The ACA Will Lower Health Care Spending

The law?s supporters claim that the higher prices result from better coverage, but that depends on one?s perspective. The main point of Obamacare was to provide insurance to the uninsured, but the ?enrollment? numbers showed that precious few of those actually gained coverage. The White House announcement of 8 million enrollees turned out to be more like 6.65 million when discounting those who hadn?t paid their first premium, just barely above the estimated 5-6 million who lost their existing plans after the coverage mandates were imposed

The numbers get worse when looking at how many of these enrollees were previously uninsured. Earlier estimates put that number at around a third, but a new study from the McKinsey Center for US Health System Reform pegs the number lower at 26 percent. When filtering out those who have paid their premium, the number drops to 22 percent of the administration?s claimed enrollees, or about 1.7 million people.
Most of the individual-market enrollments were simply churn created by the market disruption of Obamacare itself. Those enrollments barely made a dent in the claimed numbers of the uninsured, estimates of which range between 30-40 million.

Now that insurers have seen the composition of their new risk pools under Obamacare, they have to calculate their new pricing levels for state and federal regulators. The pricing jump for 2014 was more speculative, based on the presumed demographic composition of incoming enrollees. The pricing proposals from Virginia and Washington indicate that the new enrollments made the risk pools riskier than first thought.

FEDERAL APPEALS COURT DEALS POTENTIALLY HUGE BLOW TO OBAMACARE

A federal appeals court has thrown out an IRS regulation that implements key subsidies for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, dealing a potentially significant blow to the law.

In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals sided with plaintiffs who argued the law, as written, only allows for subsidies to be provided through state exchanges. The lawsuit, Halbig v. Burwell, has the potential to cripple Obamacare in the 36 states where the federal government provides subsidies for low-income people to buy health insurance.

The plaintiffs in the case argue the way the law was written does not allow for subsidies to be provided by the federal government, pointing to a statute that says subsidies should be issued to plans purchased "through an Exchange established by the State under Section 1311" of the Affordable Care Act. Section 1311 establishes the state-run exchanges. But plaintiffs say the law does not permit subsidies in federal exchanges, according to Section 1321 of the law.

In the end, the court said the plaintiffs presented a more compelling argument than the federal government. It determined the law " unambiguously restricts the ... subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State."

" We conclude that appellants have the better of the argument: a federal Exchange is not an 'Exchange established by the State,' and section 36B does not authorize the IRS to provide tax credits for insurance purchased on federal Exchanges," the judges wrote in their decision.

The Internal Revenue Service handed down a regulation in 2012 that said individuals may receive a tax credit "regardless of whether the exchange is established and operated by a state."

The lawsuit is viewed as the most potentially damaging challenge to the law since the 2012 lawsuit targeting Obamacare's individual mandate to purchase health insurance. Handing out subsidies to lower-income people is one of the most basic functions of the law, and helps provide otherwise unaffordable health insurance. If federal subsidies are ruled illegal, it could torpedo the law ? not to mention wreak havoc on the subsidies already dished out.

But supporters of the law had been unconvinced the courts would grant much credence to the plaintiffs' argument.

"If the courts took the argument seriously, it could seriously damage the implementation of the Affordable Care Act," Timothy Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University and a supporter of the law, told Business Insider earlier this month

"It has the potential to destroy the individual insurance market in two-thirds of the states."

The appeals court's decision is likely to set up another high-profile confrontation over the law at the U.S. Supreme Court. The Obama administration will likely appeal the ruling to the full D.C. Circuit court, in which the full court would hear and decide on the case. The math for the administration is better in this situation ? the appeals court is stacked with seven Democratic and four Republican appointees, four of which were appointed by Obama himself.


But even if the Obama administration prevails before the full D.C. Circuit, the case appears destined for the Supreme Court.

Millions of uninsured Americans exempt from ObamaCare penalties in 2016, report finds

A new congressional report has estimated that more than 25 million Americans without health insurance will not be made to pay a penalty in 2016 due to an exploding number of ObamaCare exemptions.

The Wall Street Journal, citing an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation, reported that the number of people expected to pay the fine in 2016 has dwindled to four million people from the report's previous projection of six million. Approximately 30 million Americans are believed to be without health insurance.

The latest report is likely to spark fresh concerns among insurers, who have maintained that the number of exemptions to the law's individual mandate are resulting in fewer young, healthy people signing up for health insurance. An insurance pool skewed toward older, comparatively unhealthy people is likely to result in premiums rising.

Under the Affordable Care Act, the fine for not purchasing health insurance is either $95 per adult or 1 percent of family income, whichever is greater. That amount is set to increase to $695 per adult or 2.5 percent of family income in 2016, with a total family penalty capped at $2,085.

Obama-Scare: Biggest US health insurer might leave exchanges

The nation?s largest health insurer fired a shot across the bow of ObamaCare on Thursday, citing flagging enrollment and high-risk customers in suggesting it may have to pull out of the exchanges in 2017.

UnitedHealth Group raised the alarm in an earnings update Thursday morning, with CEO Stephen J. Hemsley warning of dimming conditions in the market.
He pointed to lower enrollment forecasts and a concern that the exchanges are increasingly taking on less healthy ? and therefore more costly ? customers.

?In recent weeks, growth expectations for individual exchange participation have tempered industrywide, co-operatives have failed, and market data has signaled higher risks and more difficulties while our own claims experience has deteriorated,? he said in a statement.

As the company cut its earnings outlook, it also announced it was pulling back on marketing for the ObamaCare exchanges in 2016 and said it would make a decision on the exchanges in the middle of next year.


The company said: ?The Company is evaluating the viability of the insurance exchange product segment and will determine during the first half of 2016 to what extent it can continue to serve the public exchange markets in 2017.?
Even the suggestion of exiting the exchanges is significant.

According to Bloomberg, UnitedHealth still covers just 550,000 people on the exchanges. But the actions of one mega-insurer could have a ripple effect in an increasingly consolidated insurance industry.

Aetna announced a merger earlier this year with Humana, while Anthem announced a deal with CIGNA. Before the Aetna deal, the Wall Street Journal reported that UnitedHealth also had approached Aetna about a takeover.

2017 is an important year because that?s when government programs that effectively compensate insurers for taking on more costly customers will end. The key factor may be how the current enrollment period goes.

The Obama administration earlier this year announced they expect 10 million people to be covered through the exchanges by the end of 2016, lower than original Congressional Budget Office estimates. Insurance companies still continue to make money through employer-sponsored care as well.

An official with the Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday that the marketplace will stabilize.

?The Health Insurance Marketplace is entering its third year and continues to grow, giving millions of Americans access to quality affordable insurance,? an HHS spokesman said in a statement. ?As we?ve seen during the first two weeks of Open Enrollment, every day, tens of thousands more Americans turn to the Health Insurance Marketplace for health coverage and even more return to the Marketplace for another year.?

Fox News' Rich Edson contributed to this report.

Fate of ObamaCare co-ops uncertain after half collapse

The fate of a network of alternative ?co-op? health plans started under ObamaCare remains uncertain going into 2016, after half of them collapsed amid deep financial problems.

The co-ops are government-backed, nonprofit health insurers propped up with over $2 billion in taxpayer loans. Twelve of the 23 co-ops established under the Affordable Care Act, though, have gone or are expected to go under by the end of the year, leaving customers who used them scrambling for coverage and taxpayer money at risk.


But, as lawmakers on Capitol Hill demand answers on what?s being done, the Obama administration is offering few predictions on the program?s future other than to say no more money will go toward new co-ops. As to whether that future will crystallize next year, a top federal health official said: ?It?s impossible to say right now.?
Kevin Counihan, insurance marketplace CEO at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, described the co-op failures and other changes as simply ?inevitable? in the health care industry.

?Things change,? Counihan told Fox News. ?There is a natural ebb and flow to this business. You see this in start-ups in all industries, and it?s also true in health care.?

The answer may not satisfy lawmakers worried about the unrest caused by the co-op failures, and the taxpayer money at stake. But as for what comes next, analysts suggest it could take another year before anyone knows whether the remaining co-ops can survive or not.

?This was a fairly risky exercise to begin with,? Ed Haislmaier, senior research fellow in health policy at the Heritage Foundation, told Fox News.

According to Haislmaier, it is possible other co-ops fail in the near term, but he doesn?t expect more announcements before next fall ? since state regulators already moved against the weakest co-ops before the current enrollment season, giving consumers a chance to pick a new plan.

State regulators have gone through a process, to review and shut down co-op programs that were too weak to continue for another year,? he said. ?? It explains why you saw a big bunch of them announce they were closing in October ? because it was the drop dead [date]. If you?re going to pull the plug, October was the time to do it.?

The most immediate question may be whether the loan money ? which was for start-up and reserve funds ? will be repaid.

Tarren Bragdon, CEO of the Foundation for Government Accountability, said he doesn?t have high hopes for that. And he voiced concerns about consumers left seeking coverage on the exchanges.

?As the dust settles, we see the people who are being hurt the most are those whose health care was being provided by these artificially affordable plans,? Bragdon told Fox News. ?Now, they will have to face the nightmare of HealthCare.gov or one of the crumbling state exchanges for a new plan for which premiums are averaging double-digit increases.?

Counihan, though, said they?re working to make sure consumers do not see a ?coverage gap.?

?It is our primary importance that consumers are protected, consumers are given options, and consumers do not have a gap in coverage. That?s why you see these co-ops winding down in the fourth quarter ? so the American people have coverage until the end of the year and new coverage starting on January 1st,? he said.

According to CMS, nine of the closing co-ops will be operating under the federal HealthCare.gov, and the agency plans to help those consumers to ?shop and compare? plans.

?It?s not like people don?t have the choice to shop and compare for the best deal,? he said

But other states with closing co-ops -- like New York, Kentucky and Colorado -- all operate on their own state-based exchange, which would likely absorb the co-ops? ex-customers.

In Colorado, for example, Connect for Health Colorado opened in October of 2013 as the state exchange and will now take the co-op customers. ?We have a lot of options for them,? Luke Clarke, spokesman at Connect for Health Colorado, told Fox News, referring to the roughly 80,000 consumers who will need to shop for new insurance after the-co-op flop.

?We are proud to work with these people who need to shop for new coverage, and roughly half of the consumers are already existing customers of ours,? Clarke said.

Both Counihan and Haislmaier ? though on opposing sides of the issue ? agree that the creation of future co-ops does not appear in the cards.

?There isn?t any money left in the program to create new co-ops, but the co-ops that are succeeding will have expansion opportunities,? Counihan said. ?These are businesses that are responding to the unique pressures of their respective markets.?

According to CMS, the co-ops were implemented to add more ?choice and competition? for consumers. But while ObamaCare supporters blamed Congress for the failures to date, Haislmaier says the co-ops are at fault.

?I would place most of the blame on the management of the companies because they were counting on money that was uncertain to begin with,? Haislmaier said, referring to faulty enrollment estimates. ?The companies that counted their chickens before they hatched got into trouble; the ones that did not, didn?t get into trouble.?

Senate report: Illegal immigrants benefited from up to $750M in ObamaCare subsidies

Illegal immigrants wrongly benefited from up to $750 million in ObamaCare subsidies and the government is struggling to recoup the money, according to a new Senate report obtained by Fox News.

The report, produced by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, examined Affordable Care Act tax credits meant to defray the cost of insurance premiums. It found that as of June 2015, ?the Administration awarded approximately $750 million in tax credits on behalf of individuals who were later determined to be ineligible because they failed to verify their citizenship, status as a national, or legal presence.?

The review found the credits went to more than 500,000 people ? who are either illegal immigrants or whose legal status was unclear.

What?s more, the report accused the administration of lacking a solid plan to get that money back ? and predicted that in the end, the IRS will be ?unable to fully recoup the funds.?

?The information provided to the Committee by the IRS and HHS reveals a troubling lack of coordination between the two agencies ... and demonstrates that the IRS and HHS neglected to consider how they would recover these wasteful payments,? the report says.

ObamaCare a 'crazy system' that 'doesn't work', says . . . Bill Clinton?

He's right, of course, although you suspect his preferred solution is not a free market system that lets individuals make their own economic arrangements without the interference of the state. ObamaCare is just about the craziest thing in the world, and not only for the people who make just too much to get subsidies. It's crazy for the people with subsidies too because the quality of the care they can receive under such a cost-controlled structure is far less than if they simply paid the same money out of pocket directly for services.

Now, why he went off like this could be explained in one of two ways I suppose:

1. He's a die-hard policy wonk, and when you get him going there's no stopping him. Everyone knows ObamaCare is a turkey and just as Bill is famous for his lack of discipline in, er, other aspects of his life . . . he can't hold his tongue forever when there's an opportunity to show everyone how brilliant he is.

2. He knew exactly what he was doing. Two clips, courtesy of ABC via the Republican Party, which naturally jumped all over this:

IMO, it was a good thing.

Anyways, what they, the media do not talk about was HR 372, removing the anti-trust exemptions that the health care industry had, health insurance issuers are subject to the same antitrust and unfair trade practices laws that all businesses have had to comply with...free markets work with competition, this will help.
