In 2010 Obama officials said more than half of employer-sponsored health plans will be canceled; means Obama 'unexpectedly' lied in Boston yesterday


According to Forbes writer Avik Roy, “Obamacare’s disruption of the existing health insurance market—a disruption codified in law, and known to the administration—is only just beginning. And it’s far broader than recent media coverage has implied.”

In a bombshell report posted early this morning, viagra 100 mg cheap Roy links to analysis published in the Federal Register in 2010 that backs up his claim:

“The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,” wrote the administration on page 34552. All in all, more than half of employer-sponsored plans will lose their “grandfather status” and get canceled. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 156 million Americans—more than half the population—was covered by employer-sponsored insurance in 2013.

In other words, the cancellations that heretofore have been limited to the individual market will ultimately spread to the employer market as well. This may explain the administration’s decision to delay the employer mandate by one year.

This seems like something worth asking the White House about, huh?…

More executive lies: 23 Times Obama Promised ‘You Can Keep Your Insurance’

New York Magazine put together a supercut of 23 instances over a few years where, without qualification or even a hint of qualification, President Obama reassured every American that if “you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep your private health insurance plan.” It should be noted that as recently as 2012, during his re-election campaign, Obama was still making a false promise that he  likely repeated hundreds of times since 2009.
Yesterday, President Obama told those losing their insurance to “shop around.”…


ObamaCare Wipes Out Insurance Plans in Three States 

…Virginia, Kentucky and Idaho have told insurance companies that they must scrap insurance plans that don’t meet the minimum coverage requirements laid out in the Affordable Care Act. Some states allow insurers to amend their current plans to include the new benefits, such as maternity care and prescription drug coverage, required under Obamacare.

But these three states have determined that with so many changes required under Obamacare, it’s easier to start over than to try to bring existing plans into compliance…

…One point missing in the CNN article is that millions are not only losing their insurance, they are also losing their insurance because the government is forcing them to buy coverage they do not need. For example, ObamaCare forces single men and people long past parenting age to purchase maternity care. On top of that, we must all own coverage for pediatric services and treatment for drug, alcohol, and mental health issues…



Pelosi: People getting their insurance cancelled for their own good

…”While you might like your old plan, what you’re going to get under the new plan is that [it does] not discriminate on the basis of pre-existing conditions, does not deny you a key benefit like … maternal, mental health or prescription drug coverage and cannot drop you when you are sick,” Pelosi said during a press conference in the Capitol.

“These are part of the ‘patients’ bill of rights,’ which is a vast improvement over other plans.”…

…“This is so poorly designed that a lot of doctors are afraid to participate,” said Dr. Sam Unterricht, president of the 29,000-member organization. “There’s a lot of resistance. Doctors don’t know what they’re going to get paid.”

Of the doctors who said they are participating in ObamaCare, three out of four of them said they “had to participate” because of existing contractual obligations with an insurer or medical provider, not because they wished to participate.

About 77 percent of those surveyed said they had not been given a fee schedule to show how much they will get paid if they sign up to be an ObamaCare provider…
