‘Gag clauses,’ inserted by pharmaceutical benefit managers, prohibit pharmacies from telling people that they might benefit from paying in cash rather than using their insurance card.
Netflix produces movies in-house, just like a health-care system provides all of its own care instead of referring to experts outside the network. Then they cheapen the quality.
Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum supports Bernie Sanders’ health plan. That bill would end Medicare for seniors, which will fly like an anvil in senior-dominated Florida.
The sharp contrast between most Republicans’ Obamacare rhetoric and legislative actions show that they either do not understand federalism, or discard it when politically inconvenient.
President Trump can talk all he wants about Obamacare imploding, but so long as the federal government props tens of billions of dollars into the exchanges, it probably won’t happen.
For all critics’ carping about how short-term coverage epitomizes ‘junk insurance,’ these plans will provide another option for individuals who find Obamacare-compliant policies unattractive.
As with the principle that members of Congress should enroll in the Obamacare health insurance exchanges, so too should the CEOs running them.
Even as the House will consider legislation creating a new qualified medical deduction for gym memberships, it has yet to pass legislation limiting abortion as a medical expense.
At this rate, Commonwealth Fund should stop putting out reports talking about all the health costs we could save by increasingly socializing medicine. Our country can’t afford them.
By defunding the mandate, the Palmer amendment would effectively prohibit this tax increase, to say nothing of the threat of property seizures, from affecting residents of the nation’s capital.
The D.C. mandate contains three elements that make it just as bad as, if not worse than, the federal mandate it is intended to replace.
Voters do like the idea of ‘protections for people with pre-existing conditions’ in the abstract. But when pressed, they express significant qualms about the trade-offs.
These requirements would undermine the bill’s supposed goal of ‘state flexibility,’ and could lead to a regime more onerous and expensive than Obamacare itself.
It says much about the leftward shift of the Democratic Party that the government-run ‘public option’ represents the most conservative of all the policy proposals discussed.
The Commonwealth researchers claim Trump administration decisions explain the decline in the number of Americans with health insurance. But the data themselves suggest another theory.
Financing child-rearing is complicated and messy, just like the rest of parenthood. But there are plenty of ways your costs could be lower than the average.
The only thing that keeps Obamacare from collapsing completely is that taxpayers are paying most or all of the premiums for the vast majority of people in the exchanges.
Like other studies before it, the Urban paper omitted inconvenient truths that have made this year’s premium increases less drastic for consumers than they appear at first blush.
Republicans seem insistent on doing anything but solving the ultimate problem with Obamacare: strangling states’ and individuals’ power to manage their own health care.
