Obamacare changes a negative for insurers: Moody's

The credit rating agency on Thursday warned that two recent proposals to change the rules of the Affordable Care Act, yet again, would be "further credit negatives for health insurers."

One proposed change would be to pressure insurers to increase the size of medical provider networks offered to their customers. The other would be to allow people insured by plans that are no longer compliant with ACA standards to maintain that coverage through 2016.

The proposals threaten not only the bottom lines of insurers, but also the pocketbooks of consumers, who would face likely higher premiums as a result, Moody's said.

The rating agency noted that the developments follow announcements from insurance giants Aetna, Cigna and Humana that they "expect to earn negative margins on their [Obamacare health insurance] exchange business in 2014."

Part of the idea of Obamacare was to take down the private insurance companies anyway, on the road to government supplied health care. Right on schedule.

How can these companies have negative margins when "the law" clearly has a get out of jail free card (bailout) for then WHEN the numbers fail to work out? Unless of course Obama uses his pen and his phone to change that part of "the law" too.

Many of the great disasters of our time have been committed by experts.

And still the Oregon exchange, after spending hundreds of millions still has yet to sign up one paid client.

President Obama: Never underestimate Joe Biden's ability to f*** things up.

Yeah, sounds like the usual free-enterpriser/capitalist/contractor got rich ($304 million) at the federal government's expense without providing the services and systems that it was obligated to produce.

....Imagine my surprise...

Apparently, the state has "focused on their success at getting people enrolled despite the website’s problems, saying they’ve managed to extend health coverage to more than 200,000 people, many of whom didn’t have it before.

Apparently when they finally switch over to the federal system, they will finally start getting the coverage they deserve.

Sure...

Quiet fixes to healthcare.gov are helping some shoppers on the troubled website, but some still remain without insurance coverage. In the meantime, insurers are skeptical the latest marketplace enrollment numbers are cause for health law optimism.

USA Today: Help For Some -- But Not All -- Stymied Insurance Shoppers
Many consumers who have waited months to resolve insurance application issues on healthcare.gov are finally getting help, but some are still stuck in limbo without Medicaid or insurance coverage, and many of the site's most vexing problems remain, according to insurers, brokers and state Medicaid officials. Applications that take days, clueless customer service representatives and error-ridden or orphan files persist. Changes made to the website last week will solve many of these problems, but the fixes were made so quietly that few brokers and consumers were aware of them, says Jessica Waltman, senior vice president of government affairs for the National Association of Health Underwriters, which represents insurance agents and brokers (O'Donnell, 2/13).

That was a great article Rev. I thought it was mighty nice of ol Uncle Sam to update their computers to allow people to have "Life changes" and be able to edit their personal info on Heathcare.Gov. So thoughtful of those Bureaucrats... LOL

ATTENTION EVERYONE: The Givernment has now updated their billion dollar computers, and approved you (loyal subject) for permission to make "LIFE CHANGES" and promptly report them now to HEALTHCARE.GOV. Hurry Hurry!
Please sign on to Healthcare.gov and report your "Life changes" so we can re-determine your subsidy and/or "shared responsibility payment", er tax, er fine, er fee, er penalty, uh err or whatever ASAP. Thank you loyal subjects.

Thanks Obama! Get Covered!
