Trump to sign executive orders on health care

Ideas under consideration, according to a Wall Street Journal report, include making association plans for trade groups and businesses available to more individuals. Another plan is to allow people to purchase short-term catastrophic insurance for longer periods.

 

Depending on the White House's moves, the order could allow many customers to buy cheaper but less comprehensive plans, potentially avoiding regulations in their state on what treatments insurers must cover and how much they can charge people with pre-existing conditions.

 

Such moves could create less expensive options for healthier customers who earn too much to qualify for federal subsidies, but, by drawing them away from the Obamacare exchanges, the changes could cause premiums for sicker patients to spike and potentially cause some insurers to abandon the individual market entirely.

 

Insurance companies can already sell plans across states lines under Obamacare if the states in question allow it, but they must meet minimum standards of coverage; insurers have not lined up to use the provision.

 

Insurers and state regulators have already complained they are raising premiums next year on the Obamacare exchanges in part because of uncertainty over the White House's approach to the law. The administration is drastically scaling back advertising and outreach campaigns to enroll people during the next enrollment period, which begins Nov. 1 and concludes Dec. 15.

Everyone knows that insurance works best when you put the low risk and high risk people in different pools.

Works best for the insurance companies!

I haven't read any articles about it, but the other day I heard an NPR report in the car that described one of the measures as allowing businesses to collectively bargain with insurance companies since their size give them more leverage; I nearly drove into a fucking tree thinking about how Republicans are acknowledging the benefits of collective bargaining

I was paying like $37 a month for health care. See now next year it's like $90 for the cheapest one now. This is great!

 

My workplace would charge me $1142 dollars a month to insure my family. And that's for insurance that sucks.

 

My wife insures us instead and it's only $680 a month. What a bargain!

 

And then when you need an MRI or something like that, it still costs you $1,200 bucks?

 

Why? Because FUCK EVERYTHING, THATS WHY.

The hilarious part is (for the little that is funny with this) is during the signing he almost walked out of the room without signing the damn thing. He FORGOT TO SIGN WHAT HE WAS THERE TO SIGN. He just gave a speech and almost walked out.

Oh, it makes complete sense to me. They want collective bargaining, as long as the collective bargaining is THEM (the business owners) being able to collective bargain. When the right is given to people who working against them, it's obviously communism, socialism and Satanism rolled into one.

That's true - but this is a "win" to him on repealing and replacing Obamacare, so you'd think . . . he would? Guess I'm still giving him too much credit. Shame on me at this point. What bothers me the most are all those fucks laughing as if it's nothing - when they are deciding something that will affect 1/6 of the American economy, as well as human lives to a degree. 

 

Laugh it up assholes. We're coming for ya in 2018. I hope.

Exhausted Trump Supporter Just Decides Massive Cuts To Healthcare Subsidies Reason He Voted For Him

 

Quote

BEAVER DAM, WI—In an effort to justify the recent set of executive orders the president signed earlier this week to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, exhausted Trump supporter Phil Holt reportedly just decided Friday that massive cuts to healthcare subsidies were the reason he voted as he did. “Ultimately increasing the cost of healthcare for me, my family members, and others like me is why I voted for Trump the first place,” said the completely drained Holt, 56, who reportedly has spent the last nine months since Trump took office rationalizing every step the White House has made as his motivation for casting his ballot for the president. “When I went to the polls, I based my vote solely on the hope that insurance would be allowed to skirt around Obamacare policies that protect the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions from being discriminated against. Destabilizing the nation’s healthcare system is exactly what I wanted from Trump and exactly what I got. Yes, exactly.” At press time, a weary Holt had determined that getting a second job just to afford healthcare was always a part of making America great again.

On the surface, I like the idea of being able to form health cooperatives/collective bargaining.  I'm not sure this is the best way to go about it. Who knows, maybe this EO will spurn bipartisan legislation that will address many of the shortcomings of the ACA, and finally repeal Obamacare!

... From a business standpoint, don't you want business stocks to rise in value?  

 

Not if you're abusing your office to create an opportunity to short your stocks. Or if you just don't own those stocks.

Lol, I worked with a guy who was paying a grand a month and couldn't afford the deductible to treat his foot for diabetes. Had to go on leave, ran out of sick time and leave and then was forced to retired. He could be fucken dead right now for all I know.
