Obamacare: Cancellations, Sticker Shock Right on Schedule

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” or not as millions of Americans receive cancellation letters of their healthcare policies and news that their healthcare premiums are skyrocketing.

As predicted, many Americans who received a reprieve last year have (or will be any day now) received cancellation notices of their healthcare plans s letters.

Courtesy of Obamacare, their policies have been ordain illegal, leaving many no other alternative but to purchase a more expensive/ substandard government-approved policy.

The official talking points as expected lays the blame at the feet of healthcare insurance companies while ignoring the fact that Obamacare legislation was written with the intent of forcing Americans onto the healthcare exchanges.

Kaiser News

Cancellations are in the mail to customers from Texas to Alaska in markets where insurers say the policies no longer make business sense. In some states, such as Maryland and Virginia, rules call for the plans’ discontinuations, but in many, federal rules allow the policies to continue into 2017.

Insurers sending the notices to some customers include Anthem, one of the largest insurers in the country, Baltimore-based CareFirst, Health Care Services Corporation in Chicago, Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, Calif., Humana in Louisville, Ky., and Golden Rule, an Indianapolis subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group.

One reason behind the switch is that insurers determined they can make more money selling plans that comply with the Affordable Care Act, often at higher premiums that may be subsidized by the government.

“They’re getting a lot more revenue, often for the same person,” said consultant Robert Laszewski, a former insurance executive….

The number of Americans receiving cancellation letters less than four weeks before the mid-terms elections is expected to exceed the several million who received cancellation letters in 2013.

Washington Post

Some of the small-business cancellations are occurring because the policies don’t meet the law’s basic coverage requirements. But many are related only indirectly to the law; insurers are trying to move customers to new plans designed to offset the financial and administrative risks associated with the health-care overhaul. As part of that, they are consolidating their plan offerings to maximize profits and streamline how they manage them….

Affected are those with healthcare plans private or through their employers living in New Jersey, Colorado, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, Vermont, Virginia. That, of course, includes anyone who purchased their healthcare insurance through professional or trade associations, i.e., doctors, lawyers, accountants and private contractors.

Adding to that, more than 10,000 illegals will lose their Obamacare coverage canceled for failing to provide proof of citizenship.

STICKER SHOCK

2015 Obamcare rates bronze plans

 

The cost of premiums effective January 1, 2015 promises to leave those Americans who purchased certain plans reeling when exchange enrollment begins next month (November 15th, post November elections).

According to Investor’s Business Daily, the cost of the cheapest bronze plan in 16 cities will “jump an average of 13.9% for 40-year-old non-smokers earning 225% of the poverty level ($26,260).”

In Seattle, the cost of the cheapest bronze plan, after subsidies, will soar 64%, from $60 to $98 per SCREENSHOT OBAMACARE BRONZE PLAN INCREASE MONTHLY PREMIUSM EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1 2015month, for individuals at this income level. Some other cities seeing notable gains include Providence (up 38%, from $72 to $99 per month); Los Angeles (up 27%, from $88 to $111); Las Vegas (up 22%, from $100 to $122); and New York (up 18%, from $97 to $114).

Ironic isn’t it that cities run by Progressives will suffer the biggest increases?

Finally, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services dispatched emails to insurers demanding that they not reveal the process or results of the testing of the Obamacare exchanges.

obama shhh

Wall Street Journal

The email alert spells out exactly what is expected of participants: Insurance-industry officials “will not use, disclose, describe, post to a public form, or in any way share Test Data with any person or entity, including but not limited to the media,” unless the recipient also has agreed to the confidentiality provisions.

The new confidentiality agreement won’t just cover the industry data that will be included in the marketplace’s testing environment….

In other words, the Obama administration, in an attempt to control the message plans to issue talking points that the healthcare exchanges are up, running and that it’s all good, well because, Americans are too stupid to think for themselves. (sarcasm)

 

See: If you like your plan you can keep it unless it’s Humana, Aetna or United HealthOne.

Obama Delivers Ebola to USA; Expediting Visas, Immigration Relief to Nationals of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone

BeFunky_obama plans for America Ebola

 

For weeks, Americans have been wondering why Barack Obama is refusing to impose a temporary ban on Ebola-afflicted nations.

Even before Barack Obama and his minions began holding daily press conferences attempting to tamp down what they refer to as hysteria over the Ebola outbreak here, Obama had begun expediting the visas of nationals in the USA from Ebola-stricken countries.

Pursuant to the website of Neufvillelaw.Com, in August, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began expediting visas, i.e., Ebola Outbreak-related immigration relief measures to nationals of the West African nations of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, who are currently in the United States.”

Since information regarding the Ebola virus has been disappearing from the internet, below is a screenshot of Neufvillelaw’s webpage.

Screenshot - 'Ebola Outbreak-related Immigration Relief Measures to Nationals of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea Currently in the United States and other considerations I The La

 

As advertised by the Department of Homeland Security website, effective August 15, 2014:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is closely monitoring the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. USCIS offers relief measures to nationals of those three countries who are currently in the United States.

Immigration relief measures that may be available if requested include:

Change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an individual currently in the United States, even if the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired;

Extension of certain grants of parole made by USCIS;

Expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;

Expedited processing of immigrant petitions for immediate relatives (currently in the United States) of U.S. citizens;

Expedited adjudication of employment authorization applications, where appropriate; and

Consideration for waiver of fees associated with USCIS benefit applications.

To learn more about how USCIS provides assistance to customers affected by unforeseen circumstances in their home country, visit www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/special-situations.

For more information on USCIS and its programs, please visit www.uscis.gov, call the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283, or follow USCIS on Facebook (/uscis), Twitter (@uscis), YouTube (/uscis) and the USCIS blog The Beacon.

See DHS screenshot below:

Well there it is. This explains how Thomas Eric Duncan received his visa so quickly. Duncan was on his way here to the United States to marry his girlfriend who will no doubt benefit under this program.

It also explains why Progressives at today’s House Energy Committee on Ebola linked the Ebola outbreak with immigration and why Barack Obama is so adamant about not imposing a temporary travel ban on Ebola-stricken countries.

Obama has guaranteed a pandemic on U. S. soil due to the fact that there will be a mad rush of people from Ebola-stricken nations traveling to America to join family or marry friends and loved ones living here and stand to benefit from this program.

What more proof do we need to realize that Progressives are a threat to our nation on so many levels, first because of their ignorance?

Published on Oct 16, 2014 by TheAlexJonesChannel

Infowars reporter Joe Biggs hits the streets to see if people will sign a petition, “The Ebola Equality Act 0f 2014″ that will provide funds to ebola victims from West Africa to enter the US, allowing them to travel freely throughout the country and even giving the signees the option to house the ebola patients themselves.

At the rate, today’s college students are going; they will finish what Barack Obama by the end of his term has left undone.  Unless something changes and fast, we, as a nation, are screwed.

Obamacare: Admin Signals Doubts about Calculator Permitting Plans w/o Hospital Benefits

Tags

BeFunky_null_1 hospital trauma center

Kaiser Health News By Jay Hancock

Insurance consultants were shocked recently to learn that Obama administration rules allow large companies to offer 2015 worker health plans that don’t include hospital benefits. Now the administration is concerned too.

Treasury Department officials are preparing to reverse course on an official calculator that permits plans without hospital coverage to pass the health law’s strictest standard for large employers, said industry lawyers who have spoken to them. These sources expect the administration to disallow such coverage by the end of the year.

The politically sensitive shift reflects senior officials’ growing concern over insurance that consumer advocates call substandard but that effectively bars workers from subsidies to buy fuller coverage outside the workplace, the sources said.

The calculator is an online spreadsheet developed by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Successfully completing it is one way for large companies to certify whether their plans meet a “minimum-value” of benefits, the health law’s toughest requirement for large employers – generally those with 50 or more workers. Offering minimum-value insurance at an affordable price spares companies from fines of as much as $3,120 per worker next year.

As previously reported by Kaiser Health News and the Washington Post, industry executives were surprised this summer to see consultants selling calculator-approved plans that lack hospital insurance and cost half as much as similar coverage with hospitalization.

Employees offered minimum-value coverage at work, even if it lacks hospital benefits, are barred from federal subsidies to buy policies in the Affordable Care Act’s online marketplaces.

No final decision has been made by the administration on blocking the plans, sources emphasized.

But “my best guess is that they will kill them,” said Frasier Ives, a benefits consultant for Wells Fargo Insurance who has talked to Treasury officials about the matter. “The only question is when they are going to make it effective.”

HHS designed the calculator, but Treasury is charged with enforcing the minimum-value standard. The agencies have stayed silent on the matter despite repeated queries.

“I’m actually going to decline comment on this,” said Treasury spokeswoman Erin Donar, when asked about the agency’s review.

“Not familiar with this one,” HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said last week.

Disqualifying calculator-approved plans without inpatient benefits could disrupt preparations by hundreds of firms, employing tens of thousands of workers, that are eyeing them for 2015, said brokers and benefits lawyers.

“These are cost decisions impacting employers,” said Anne Lennan, president of the Society of Professional Benefit Administrators, some of whose members administer the plans under scrutiny. “We’re getting close to Jan. 1. If you’re going to change this you have got to let people know.”

Preliminary results from a member survey by the American Staffing Association show that 46 percent of the temp and recruiting firms that responded are considering such coverage for next year, said Edward Lenz, senior counsel for the trade group. The association’s 1,600 members employ about 3 million workers on any given day.

“A number of significant firms have signed up for it,” Lenz said. Some companies have implemented it as of Oct. 1, he added. He declined to identify them.

Higher-pay employers that have traditionally provided major medical coverage aren’t expected to sponsor insurance without hospitalization next year. But retailers, light manufacturers, restaurants, hotel chains and other low-wage employers are also keen on calculator-tested coverage without hospitalization, consultants said.

“I can’t tell you how many people are still interested,” said Bruce Flunker, president of Wisconsin-based EBSO, a small benefits firm. “We have two [plans] that are officially in place effective Oct. 1. We have, I think, 26 proposals out right now for Jan. 1 effective dates.”

While the health law doesn’t compel large employers to offer hospitalization and other “essential health benefits” required of plans sold to individuals and small employers, few expected the calculator to approve insurance without it. But it does, certifying plans that lack inpatient coverage but include rich outpatient benefits such as doctor visits and emergency-room care.

Many argue that the software is flawed, that Congress never intended for large companies to avoid the health law’s “employer mandate” penalties by offering insurance that doesn’t pay for hospital care.

Others, especially consultants working with lower-wage employers, contend that the administration wanted to grant leeway to such companies that haven’t historically offered major medical insurance.

On Friday Alan Tawshunsky, a senior Treasury lawyer, told a legal conference that the calculator is under “active review,” said Mark Holloway, a benefits attorney for broker Lockton Companies.

Although Tawshunsky didn’t elaborate, “it seems pretty clear to me that the calculator will be changed” to require hospital coverage, said Holloway, who was at the American Bar Association meeting where Tawshunsky spoke. “It’s just a question of when” — and whether “any protection is given to employers who used the old calculator” to design coverage for 2015, he said.

Last week Lenz, of the American Staffing Association, met with senior Treasury officials whom he declined to identify.

While the officials didn’t spell out their next move, “our strong sense is that they will issue guidance before the end of the year [that] will say that plans that don’t offer hospitalization don’t qualify as minimum value,” he said. “That’s what we’ll be telling our members.”

If that happens, industry officials are asking the administration to allow such insurance next year for employers that have committed to it — even if it is banned in subsequent years.

Since plan years typically begin in January, Treasury is “acutely aware of the timing issue,” said Wells Fargo Insurance’s Ives. “They know if they don’t come out with something pretty damn quick it’s going to be more unfair to employers that have already implemented them.”

Lynn Quincy, associate director of health reform policy for Consumers Union, called administration scrutiny of the calculator “very welcome news.” But if policymakers temporarily let employers offer hospital-free coverage next year, she urged them to also allow workers at those companies to obtain exchange subsidies to buy alternative insurance.

“They should not be giving these employers any transitional relief if there is not also something to help their employees,” she said.

Revisiting the calculator would summon protests from industry and could open the administration to new criticism about the health law rollout right before an election.

“The people from Treasury aren’t stupid,” said Holloway. “They realize this is a political hot potato. I think they’re being deliberately tight-lipped about it. That kind of leaves everybody twisting in the wind.”

According to ABC15,

The owner of the salon next door to the bank said it was another business owner who opened fire.

‘He took the keys out of the car because they left the car running. And so he took the keys out of the car and kind of, I guess, he stood behind it waiting for them (the suspects) to come out,’ said Therea Sessler, owner of Fix Salon….

Obama has an Ebola Czar who Re-Directed Fed Research $$$ to a Democrat Donor Now in Chapter 11

BeFunky_Ebola Czar nicole lurie hhs.jpg

I bet you didn’t even know that Barack Obama had an Ebola czar. Well don’t feel bad, neither did I and like the CDC, it appears that Dr. Nicole Lurie has been doing everything BUT her job. Politics, politics, politics.

Nicole Lurie, M.D., M.S.P.H. is the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), HHS, the position of which was created after Hurricane Katrina.

According to the HHS.gov website, “her office is to lead the nation in preventing, responding to and recovering from the adverse health effects of public health emergencies and disasters, ranging from hurricanes to bioterrorism.”

So why haven’t we heard of Lurie and why has the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response been MIA these past several weeks during the firestorm surrounding the outbreak of the Ebola virus and its bungling by the Obama administration? (Unless, of course, Americans, the world as a whole is being misled and this Ebola is a hoax as many maintain it to be.)

Lurie, corruption, pay to play, politics and the Obama administration’s lack of transparency is the reason that Americans have had to suffer Tom Freiden, CDC jackass who has been thrust to the forefront.

Putting Lurie on display would re-open a scandal which never gathered any steam in the mainstream media back in 2011 involving billionaire, Progressive political donor Ron Perelman and a no-bid contract for contract for New York-based Siga Technologies Inc. of which Perelman is the controlling shareholder.

Siga received the contract “a $433-million plan to buy an experimental smallpox drug, despite uncertainty over whether it is needed or will work”…. “ through a ‘sole-source’ procurement.”

L. A.Times

The Obama administration official who has overseen the buying of Siga’s drug says she is trying to strengthen the nation’s preparedness. Dr. Nicole Lurie, a presidential appointee who heads biodefense planning at Health and Human Services, cited a 2004 finding by the Bush administration that there was a “material threat” smallpox could be used as a biological weapon.

Read full article

Yet, on the Ebola virus, Lurie is MIA. H/t Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist via RedState.

One more thing, just four weeks ago, Siga Technologies filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

Marketwatch

The chapter 11 filing will ensure that SIGA continues to supply Tecovirimat pursuant to its contract with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), and is able to pursue what it believes is a meritorious appeal of a pending Delaware Chancery Court proceeding….

The petition for reorganization was filed in response to an Aug. 8 ruling from Delaware’s Court of Chancery in a suit that started in 2006. The corporate law court said PharmAthene is entitled to collect lump sum damages, with interest and fees.”

What is abundantly clear is that the Obama administration having its hands full would rather this scandal not re-surface. Thus, it is therefore necessary to keep, HHS, Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Nicole Lurie, M.D., in the background at all costs.

At this moment, House Energy and Commerce Committee is holding a hearing on the government’s response to the Ebola outbreak. Nicole Lurie is not present. Why was she not called to testify and why hasn’t she taken on the effort to coordinate preparation for and response to public health threats like Ebola.”

These are the concerns that House Energy and Commerce Committee should also be addressing at this very moment. The fact that they are not is more proof that this whole thing stinks from the top down.

The above is merely the tip of the iceberg. See Hemingway’s article “President Obama Already Has An Ebola Czar. Where Is She?

Members of House, Senate Call for Travel Ban from Ebola-Afflicted Nations

Tags

, , ,


BeFunky_mapafricasierraleoneliberiaguinea Ebola Afflicted Nations

As of this morning (Thursday) five Republican senators, 41 members of Congress, three of whom are Progressives are demanding that Barack Obama place a travel ban on airline traffic into the United States from nations afflicted with the Ebola virus, i.e., Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

Daily Mail

Republican Senator Ted Cruz…wrote Wednesday in a Texas Tribune op-ed that ‘we all very much hope the virus will not spread any further in Texas. But hope is not a strategy….’

Rep. Lou Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican, said in a statement that the U.S. is ‘faced with the growing threat of a disease for which there is no known reliable cure, and we know where it’s coming from. Why would we not act in every way possible to stop it from reaching us?’

That sentiment is 180 degrees opposition from the White House’s point of view, producing a clash that has D.C.beltway insiders scratching their heads.

A group of 26 House members, including Democrats Alan Grayson, Dave Loebsack and Kyrsten Sinema, wrote to Obama on Oct. 8 that ‘the United States needs to institute travel restrictions, enhanced airport screening and possible quarantine of individuals who have traveled to, or from’ Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea….

Read full article

John Boehner tweeted out a press release finally joining the call Wednesday while Progressive leaders remain silent.

“In a September 16 speech in Atlanta, President Obama said the ‘chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.’ Since that time, several Americans have been diagnosed with the virus and untold more potentially exposed to it. Today we learned that one individual who has contracted the virus flew to Ohio through the Cleveland airport in the last few days. A temporary ban on travel to the United States from countries afflicted with the virus is something that the president should absolutely consider along with any other appropriate actions as doubts about the security of our air travel systems grow.

“It is also imperative we ensure that federal, state and local agencies, along with our public health infrastructure, are prepared, remain vigilant, and follow proper protocols to identify the virus and take appropriate measures for those who have been exposed to it….

Continue

Among those Progressives objecting to a travel ban is the queen race baiter herself, Sheila Jackson Lee. Lee, politicizing the Ebola outbreak blames Republicans for cuts to the CDC. (What else is new?) H/t Weasel Zippers.

Allegations by Lee and fellow Progressives’ are so absurd that the Washington Post Fact Checker gave Progressives 4 Pinocchios. (See, “The absurd claim that only Republicans are to blame for cuts to Ebola research.”)

As such is the mindset of the Marxists ruling class, Wisconsin’s race hustler Rep. Gwen Moore considers the travel ban a “quick fix” that “will only exacerbate the epidemic in the region….” Really.

Those like Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) have suggested instituting a travel ban to and from West Africa. This idea may seem like a quick fix but in reality, isolating West Africa will only exacerbate the epidemic in the region. Aside from being impractical, this reactionary strategy will force Ebola patients underground making it nearly impossible to track their movements, hinder the capacity for international healthcare workers to transport and administer critical aid, and erode the continent’s fragile economy. …

Hard to believe that these cretins are voted into office. Lee and Moore are representing the interests of Barack Obama not the interests of their constituents.

RANT:
Progressive talking points: Calling for a travel ban is racist as long as Ebola does not come knocking on their doors. Communists have no honor.

Let me get this straight, it is not racist when African nations impose a travel ban, only when the United States does it?

Obama Deception and Taking Advantage of a Good Crisis

In the meantime, Barack Obama has cancelled fundraising and campaigning engagements supposedly because of the growing Ebola crisis, which according to the malignant narcissist is still not crucial enough to close for a temporary travel ban.

So then, why did Obama really cancel his plans?

The million-dollar question: Why hasn’t Obama ordered a travel ban?

What is he thinking?

Makes for a good photo op is only part of it.

While Americans are distracted, Obama and comrades see this as the perfect opportunity to complete (or attempt to) his fundamental transformation of the United States, i.e., Cloward & Piven, reset in addition to pursuing a variety of executive actions.
So many will not see it coming.

Translation: Obama does not give a damn, even in the face of the country going down to hell in a hand basket and the potential threat of loss of life, much of which is his doing and blood on his hands, Obama plans to stay the course.

On a final note, Obama and fellow Marxist elites could not be happier.
