The GOP healthcare bill keeps some of the most popular parts of Obamacare, like letting young adults stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26 and requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions. But the Republican bill gets rid of the key element that made Obamacare work: the individual mandate. Now that people aren't required to have insurance, healthy people could leave insurance pools en masse, leaving sick people who are more expensive to cover. Hypocrisy is a minor sin in politics, but still, it is remarkable how much of it there is to be found in this legislation. A core Republican complaint when Obamacare was passed was that the law delayed many of its provisions in order to reduce public outcry and manipulate the CBO’s score. The GOP bill is similarly aggressive with such tricks, delaying changes to the Medicaid expansion until 2020 and pushing Obamacare’s tax on expensive insurance plans out until 2025. Because Republicans aren’t even trying to win Democratic votes, they’re stuck designing a bill that can wiggle through the budget reconciliation process (another thing they complained about Democrats doing). That means they can’t make major changes to insurance markets like repealing Obamacare’s essential benefit standards or allowing insurance to be sold across state lines. That last part is particularly striking, given that it was one of President Trump’s five demands in his speech last week. I’ve always been skeptical about the savings Republicans could wrest by changing those regulations, but now they can’t get those savings at all — which means sacrificing a key part of their theory of cost control. This bill has a lot of problems, and more will come clear as experts study its language, the Congressional Budget Office release its estimates, and industry players make themselves heard. But the biggest problem this bill has is that it’s not clear why it exists. What does it make better? What is it even trying to achieve? Democrats wanted to cover more people and reduce long-term costs, and they had an argument for how their bill did both. As far as I can tell, Republicans have neither. At best, you can say this bill makes every obvious health care metric a bit worse, but at least it cuts taxes on rich people? Is that really a winning argument in American politics? In reality, what I think we’re seeing here is Republicans trying desperately to come up with something that would allow them to repeal and replace Obamacare. This is a compromise of a compromise of a compromise aimed at fulfilling that promise. But “repeal and replace” is a political slogan, not a policy goal. This is a lot of political pain to endure for a bill that won’t improve many peoples’ lives, but will badly hurt millions.

When I consider purchasing an individual health insurance plan for myself or my family, do I have any financial obligations beyond the monthly premium and annual deductible? Answers: It depends on the plan, but some plans have the following cost-sharing elements that you should be aware of. Co-Payments: Some plans include a co-payment, which is typically a specific flat fee you pay for each medical service, such as $30 for an office visit. After the co-payment is made, the insurance company typically pays the remainder of the covered medical charges. Deductibles: Some plans include a deductible, which typically refers to the amount of money you must pay each year before your health insurance plan starts to pay for covered medical expenses. Coinsurance: Some plans include coinsurance. Coinsurance is a cost sharing requirement that makes you responsible for paying a certain percentage of any costs. The insurance company pays the remaining percentage of the covered medical expenses after your insurance deductible is met. Out-of-pocket limit: Some plans include an out-of-pocket limit. Typically, the out-of-pocket limit is the maximum amount you will pay out of your own pocket for covered medical expenses in a given year. The out-of-pocket limit typically includes deductibles and coinsurance. But, out-of-pocket limits don't typically apply to co-payments. Lifetime maximum: Most plans include a lifetime maximum. Typically the lifetime maximum is the amount your insurance plan will pay for covered medical expenses in the course of your lifetime. Exclusions & Limitations: Most health insurance carriers disclose exclusions & limitations of their plans. It is always a good idea to know what benefits are limited and which services are excluded on your plan. You will be obligated to pay for 100% of services that are excluded on your policy. Beginning September 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (health care reform) begins to phase out annual dollar limits. Starting on September 23, 2012, annual limits on health insurance plans must be at least $2 million. By 2014 no new health insurance plan will be permitted to have an annual dollar limit on most covered benefits. Some health insurance plans purchased before March 23, 2010 have what is called "grandfathered status." Health Insurance Plans with Grandfathered status are exempt from several changes required by health care reform including this phase out of annual limits on health coverage. If you purchased your health insurance policy after March 23, 2010 and you're due for a routine preventive care screening like a mammogram or colonoscopy, you may be able to receive that preventive care screening without making a co-payment. You can talk to your insurer or your licensed eHealthInsurance agent if you need help determining whether or not you qualify for a screening without a co-payment. There are five important changes that occurred with individual and family health insurance policies on September 23, 2010. Those changes are: 1. Added protection from rate increases: Insurance companies will need to publically disclose any rate increases and provide justification before raising your monthly premiums. 2. Added protection from having insurance canceled: An insurance company cannot cancel your policy except in cases of intentional misrepresentations or fraud. 3. Coverage for preventive care: Certain recommended preventive services, immunizations, and screenings will be covered with no cost sharing requirement. 4. No lifetime maximums on health coverage: No lifetime limits on the dollar value of those health benefits deemed to be essential by the Department of Health and Human Services. 5. No pre-existing condition exclusions for children: If you have children under the age of 19 with pre-existing medical conditions, their application for health insurance cannot be declined due to a pre-existing medical condition. In some states a child may need to wait for the state's open-enrollment period before their application will be approved.

Who is paying for your healthcare? To understand how healthcare is financed in the United States, you must start with the flow of money into and out of the employer-sponsored insurance system, which covers almost 60 percent of the US population under age 65. Of the remaining 40 percent, nearly half are uninsured, and the rest are covered by Medicaid, individual insurance policies or other public plans. Our focus in this video is on the 60 percent of people covered in the employer-sponsored market, though some of these dynamics may also apply to the other 40 percent. Here's how the employer-sponsored system works: For each employee, employers contribute towards the group health insurance plan. The employer contribution has been growing each year. Employers usually make payroll deductions from employee pay checks to cover the employee's share of the cost of the group health insurance plan. The plan has certain co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance and out-of-pocket limits that determine how much plan members pay to receive care. The combined share of payroll deductions and out-of-pocket costs that represent the employee cost of healthcare has been growing in recent years. Together employer and employee contributions form the pool of funds that pays for the care provided to members of the group health plan. Funds may be used for trips to the doctor, in-patient and out-patient care, and for pharmaceuticals and other medical services. The cost and volume of usage for each service vary geographically. The difference in cost from one city to another reflects differences in how care is delivered and differences in the amount that providers and payers negotiate as payment for healthcare services. While there is a great deal of variety in how these cost dynamics behave, the common driver of increasing cost is the underlying cost of care—the cost of seeing the doctor, going to the hospital, buying prescription drugs—and the volume of each are what most determine healthcare costs. And in 2012 that underlying cost for the typical family of four will exceed $20,000. Without significant changes to the healthcare system, such as improved efficiency or better coordination of care, this cost will continue to rise.

Doctors put him under anesthesia within a week and into surgery within a month. Some of the contents of his stomach sometimes made their way to his lungs. Workers in the intensive care unit frequently needed to resuscitate him. He arrived seven weeks premature — but, in a way, just at the right time. Six months before Timmy was born, President Barack Obama signed a sweeping health care law that would come to bear his name. Six days before Timmy’s birth, the Obama administration began to phase in a provision that banned insurance companies from limiting how much they would pay for any individual’s medical bills over his or her lifetime. At the time the Affordable Care Act passed, 91 million Americans had employer-sponsored plans that imposed those so-called lifetime limits. That group included Timmy’s parents, whose plan previously included a $1 million lifetime limit. This Obamacare provision took effect September 23, 2010. Timmy was born September 29. On December 17, he surpassed $1 million worth of bills in the neonatal intensive care unit. He didn’t leave the NICU until he was 6 months old. If Timmy had been born a week earlier, his medical benefits could have run out while he was still in the NICU. But that didn’t happen. His insurer covered everything. The NICU bills his parents save total just over $2 million (they come out to $2,070,146.94, to be exact).

Congressman Paul Ryan (WI-01) offers amendment to strike the government-run plan House Ways and Means Committee markup of H.R. 3200 July 16, 2009 Let me begin by saying how I agree with something that Mr. Stark said at the beginning of this hearing. He said that this debate is a profound one, and that this vote may possibly be the most important vote ever taken in our service here in Congress. I agree. Its a big issue. Its a big debate. I have a number of regrets let me list a few. The bill we got less than 48 years ago. The Chairmans mark we got at three minutes to midnight last night. I regret the fact that not a single person that is about to vote on this bill today has read this bill. I also regret the fact that the Congressional Budget Office has just told us that they don't know what it costs. So were about to vote a bill that we havent read and we dont know what it costs. Whats also been quite amazing in this debate as this year has proceeded is that the rhetoric has been so sweet. The words work really well. The things that have been said about this bill sound so good. I dont think Ive ever seen an issue where the rhetoric so clearly contradicts the substance of this legislation. No one that makes under $250,000 will be taxed at all. Ha! Theres a bunch of taxes in here for everybody. If you like the insurance you have, you can keep it. Well thats what this amendment is all about. This amendment is very simple. It strikes the public plan. It says no government-run plan. Let me explain why its a stacked deck. Let me explain why the public plan is really a case where they are the player and the referee in the same game. Let me explain why it is virtually impossible for a public plan to compete fairly on a level playing field with the private insurance market. Four big advantages the public plan has: 1.The public plan doesnt pay taxes and the private competitors do. 2.The public plan doesnt have to have large capital reserves, the private competitors do. 3.The public plan doesnt have to account for its payroll and benefit costs of its employees, the private sector does. 4.The public plan gets to dictate the prices it will pay for services, and clearly the private plans do not. A reputable actuarial firm tells us that in three years 122 million people will get pushed off of their private health insurance. Two out of every three Americans will lose what they have and get pushed onto the public plan because of all of these factors because of the cost-shifting occurs. If were underpaying hospitals by 30% with Medicare and underpaying doctors by 20% with Medicare - where are they going to make up that difference? Studies show that a combined family of four will have higher premiums of $3620 right now because of Medicare and Medicaid underpayment. And so were going to exacerbate that underpayment. Let me read a quick line from an editorial today from Investors Business Daily: The public option won't be an option for many, but rather a mandate for buying government care. A free people should be outraged at this advance of soft tyranny. Pretty harsh words. These are words I think that are appropriate for this moment. Why dont we say: Lets make private health insurance work? Why dont we work together to make it affordable for everybody? Why dont we pass legislation to address the problems we have? Those that dont have health insurance; those with preexisting conditions that cant get insurance; and the fact that health care costs are rising so much. We could do that together if our agenda was not to have a government take over of health care. With the public plan, no matter what actuarial model you look at, it goes in that direction. In this debate, direction is destiny. The destination of this bill is to have the public plan crowd out the private sector. I am looking forward to a vibrant debate on this point. But I urge my colleagues to think twice about this moment. Think twice about the moment when you are going to vote for this bill. Think about what your constituents are going to say to you in three or four years when they have lost the health insurance that they have. --- - Ryans amendment to let Americans keep the insurance they like by striking the government-run plan was defeated, 25-15. - Vote tally http://republicans.waysandmeans.house.gov/tallysheet/amendment1.htm - Amendment text: http://republicans.waysandmeans.house.gov/UploadedFiles/Amdt_Ryan__no_govt_plan_.pdf - Investors Business Daily Editorial, It's Not An Option, July 16, 2009, http://ibdeditorials.com/IBDArticles.aspx?id=332548165656854 --- - Paul Ryans Health Care Reform: A Plan Forward: http://www.house.gov/ryan/healthcare/ - Become a Fan of Paul Ryan on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/reppaulryan - Follow Paul Ryan on Twitter: http://twitter.com/reppaulryan - Watch Paul Ryan on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/reppaulryan

We've got an election coming up here. It's pretty much a dumpster fire. But we've still got a country to run, and a health care system that's far from ideal.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz believes that he has found a way to break the current gridlock over the Republican healthcare legislation. His plan would break the insurance risk pool into two different categories – the sick and the healthy. Republicans think this is a great idea while healthcare experts are warning that this would absolutely destroy the health insurance market for everyone in America. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this. Link – http://money.cnn.com/2017/07/06/news/economy/ted-cruz-obamacare-repeal/index.html Republican Senator Ted Cruz has a plan to undo the gridlock, break through the gridlock, that has basically stalled the Republican healthcare plan in the Senate. According to reports, Ted Cruz's plan is to change the legislation a little bit so that it basically creates two pools of people in the United States: the sick and the healthy. The healthy will have the option to buy into health insurance plans that don't cover very much, but they also don't cost very much. After all, these people are healthy, so they don't have as much to worry about, they can go on with their lives. Sick people, however, according to Ted Cruz's brilliant plan, they're all going to be lumped together. They're going to have to buy high deductible, high premium plans that cover more because, you know, they're sick people, people with preexisting conditions, like pregnancies. So, they're going to pay a ton more for health insurance, and everybody else gets to have their cheap stuff and walk away. That's Cruz's plan to fix the log jam that's taking place with the Republican healthcare plan. There's just one glaringly obvious problem with that, and this is something that healthcare market specialists are pointing out to Ted Cruz. Your plan would absolutely destroy healthcare markets around the country. You see, the way they explain it, the people who actually understand what they're talking about, if you only have two pools, one incredibly high risk and one low risk, the low risk people pay less money, that's fine. Insurance companies get less money from that. The high risk people have to pay even more money that they can't afford because Cruz still wants to strip them of Medicaid and all other forms of subsidies, so they drop out completely. Suddenly, you have health insurance companies that are not making enough money to survive because the high risk pool can't afford to pay premiums, and the people over here are paying nothing for premiums. Markets absolutely collapse. At that point, healthy people would then have to pay premiums for plans that cover less, or buy into the sick pool, which the premiums are going to be even higher over there. Essentially, according to the experts, there is no feasible way for Ted Cruz's plan to actually work if put into practice, but facts have never stood in the way of Ted Cruz. He is still pushing to get the legislation in the Senate changed to create these two separate insurance pools. Now, the reason we even have insurance pools to begin with is to share the risk. Healthy people and sick people get mixed in together so that everybody kind of pays an average. Yeah, it's slightly more for the healthier people, but it's slightly less for the sicker people. We all pay that difference to keep everybody healthy, and that's the point of healthcare for the United States. It's not just about one person or one small group of people; it's what works for everyone. The whole thing, basically, has to be a compromise or, as the experts say, it's going to fall apart and destroy the entire health insurance market for the United States. Is it worth it? Maybe. Maybe that's what Republicans want. Maybe they'll be happy if nobody can have health insurance. Then the whole issue just stops. People die because they can't go to the doctor, that's one less voter they have to pander to. But that's not how it should work in this country. We should care what happens to the sick. We should care what happens to the less fortunate. Nobody in this country should be written off just because they have some kind of preexisting condition or because they don't make as much as other people, and struggle to afford health insurance. That's not fair, and that's not what this country is all about. We take care of one another, or at least we should, because if not, according to the experts, the whole damn system comes crashing down. Ring of Fire needs your help!

The American health care system is on an unsustainable path characterized by government-dominated insurance. Fixing health care begins with changing the incentives and empowering consumers to seek value with their money, while increasing competition among providers. Reforming Medicaid, Medicare, access to HSAs, and private insurance will improve access, choice, and quality of health care.

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe With tempers flaring on the US healthcare reform question, Al Jazeera speaks to two American doctors, on either side of the divide, and digs deeper into the debate. Although consensus exists on the need to overhaul the healthcare system, healthcare professionals are split on how the basic ideas of US President Barack Obama's plan will affect local residents. No official legislation has been introduced, but Obama's plan includes an emphasis on preventive care, shifting from paper files to electronic medical records, and a public option insurance plan. Major questions remain as to how the government would pay for insurance for people now uninsured, and what effects a government option would have on both workers and employers. Mark Kellen, a physician from Rockford Illinois, told Al Jazeera that the problem with Obama's healthcare plan is that "it's government centred and not patient centred". Kellen argues that "medical care doesn't need reform, the government needs reform". Jennifer Lee, a practising ER doctor in Washington DC, told Al Jazeera that Obama's proposal "is absolutely patient centred, it's all about trying to make sure patients can access care and that care is affordable". Lee says her patients are "literally dying because the healthcare system is so bad". Here are their views in their own words.

As man as 20 million people may lose their employer sponsored healthcare plan thanks to Obamacare. The best estimate, subject to a "tremendous amount of uncertainty," is that about 3 million to 5 million fewer people will obtain coverage through their employer each year from 2019 through 2022. ...CBO and JCT estimate that the ACA would reduce employment-based insurance coverage in 2019 by 20 million people, compared with 5 million in the baseline projections.

The enemy. NEOLIBERALISM is a policy model of social studies and economics that transfers control of economic factors to the private sector from the public sector. It takes from the basic principles of neoclassical economics, suggesting that governments must limit subsidies, make reforms to tax law in order to expand the tax base, reduce deficit spending, limit protectionism, and open markets up to trade. It also seeks to abolish fixed exchange rates, back deregulation, permit private property, and privatize businesses run by the state. Why did Trump’s healthcare plan fail? Simple. Paul Ryan. Blame workout boy. If you insist on immediate and easy blame. The corporatist shill. Wall Street’s manservant. He is the posterboy and architect of the corporatocracy. You know where his allegiance lies. And that allegiance never elected Trump Prez. He’s into a sphere and world that have nothing to do with Trump’s constituency. Or you. Tax relief is of little concern to a country where half pay no taxes. Yep, that’s the primary reason it failed but it’s a tad more complicated than that. Trump has to now tone down the swagger, the hubris, the brio and bravado and understand that Washington is a parallel universe that has absolutely nothing to do with that of common sense. He’s busy noshing on some crow-filled humble pie. DC’s a Potemkin village of pretend representation and constituent ideology. Behind the flutter and flash of flags waving there’s the brutal world of a coarse and callous disregard for anything resembling representative governance. And that goes for both sides of the mythical and illusory left-right paradigm. Two sides of the same coin. Left-Right. Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi. McDonald’s or Wendy’s. Wow. Such diversity. What a panoply of choice and opportunity. The healthcare reform dance has been abandoned altogether. Trump has been portrayed as failing miserably and he is now presented an opportunity that is golden. He can reformulate his position and win but not with his coterie and troupe of usual suspects advisors and minders. These are neoliberal elites who trumpet tropes and shibboleths but all remained mired in and moored to hoary and concertized said neoliberal policies that are the parenthetical mission of our once brave republic. Trump’s no leftist or socialist (which may be the problem), he’s a hard right warrior set on implementing nationalist policies but even the neoliberal elites won’t let him do that. Everyone in power wants him to lose and to be perceived as the loser. And be not swayed by the Lamont Cranston of the Demo-gogues. He calls Trump a One Percenter but he represents the 1% of the 1% in shouldering the mission statement for global elites. What a profound con this master of on-off crocodile tears is. The laughable lachrymose louse. The right loves the mindless chant and rant of “free market” everything. That’s the answer. Throw into the mix the lovable, laughable libertarian spin that is basically hard-right with the occasional pepper of “freedom” or its cousin “liberty.” Bannon and his crew are rhetoricians of the first stripe and while the left is howling with delight today, the right are laughing as well . . . while America cries, sick and tired. You’ve been had again. Sound familiar? Looking for the quick fix, the bumper sticker prince. It ain’t gonna happen without a revolution and while I still see Trump monumentally better than Hillary, he’s nowhere near the answer. But you knew that. I hold on to the fact that anyone the left and right loathe must be on to something. So what’s the answer? Simple. Medicare for everyone. And be not mistaken. That’s called SOCIALISM. Get used to it. Embrace it. http://www.investopedia.com/terms/n/neoliberalism.asp#ixzz4cM8MenKZ The Official Lionel Nation Store: http://www.cafepress.com/theofficiallionelnationstore Sign up for Lionel's Newsletter and Truth Warrior manifestos. http://lionelmedia.com/2015/05/04/information-is-the-currency-of-the-21st-century-lionel-2010-ce/ Subscribe to Lionel YouTube Channel – http://www.youtube.com/LionelY2K Official Lionel Website: http://www.lionelmedia.com Twitter – http://www.twitter.com/lionelmedia Instagram – http://www.instagram.com/lionelmedia/ Email – email@example.com Lionel Bio: http://lionelmedia.com/about-lionel/ Lionel Nation Google+ – https://plus.google.com/u/0/117173180841470374058 The Lebron Law Firm Website – http://www.lebronfirm.com Lionel Nation podcasts on iTunes – http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/lionel-nation/id1015647476 Lionel Nation podcasts on audioBoom – http://audioboom.com/lionelmedia Lionel Nation podcasts on Stitcher – http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/lionel-nation Official Facebook Fan Page – http://www.facebook.com/lionelfanpage The Lebron Law Firm Facebook Page – http://www.facebook.com/lebronfirm The Lebron Law Firm Twitter – http://www.twitter.com/lebronfirm

Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope. A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where Rand owned his own ophthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working and dedicated physician--not a career politician--Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference. Dr. Paul has been married for 24 years to Kelley Ashby Paul of Russellville, Kentucky, and together, they have three sons: William, 21; Duncan, 18; and Robert, 15. He regularly volunteered to coach teams for each of his three sons in Little League baseball, soccer, and basketball. Rand and Kelley are both devout Christians and are active in their local church. Rand is the third of five children born to Carol and Ron Paul. He grew up in Lake Jackson, Texas and attended Baylor University. He graduated from Duke Medical School in 1988. Dr. Paul completed a general surgery internship at Georgia Baptist Medical Center in Atlanta and completed his residency in ophthalmology at Duke University Medical Center. Upon completion of his training in 1993, Rand and Kelley moved to Bowling Green to start their family and begin his ophthalmology practice. In 1995, Rand founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic, an organization that provides eye exams and surgery to needy families and individuals. Rand is a former president and 17-year member of Lions Clubs International, which is dedicated to preserving sight by providing eyeglasses and surgery to the less fortunate around the world. In recognition of his outstanding and sustained efforts to provide vision care to Kentuckians in need, Lions Clubs International has awarded Rand many of its highest commendations. A large part of Rand's daily work as an ophthalmologist was dedicated to preserving the vision of our seniors. In 2002, The Twilight Wish Foundation recognized Rand for Outstanding Service and Commitment to Seniors. During his free time, Dr. Paul performs pro-bono eye surgeries for patients across Kentucky.

The Obama administration appears ready to give some labor unions a break from costly fees under the new health care law, a move that drew criticism from Republicans who say it unfairly favors a key White House ally. In regulations published last week, the administration said it intends to propose rules that would exempt "certain self-insured, self-administered plans" from the requirement to pay the fees in 2015 and 2016. Health care experts say that could apply to some union-sponsored health plans, though it's unclear how many. Labor officials downplayed any impact as miniscule, saying the language would not include most of their plans and doesn't address the wider changes they have requested. Labor unions have spent months complaining the new law will drive up the costs of certain health plans that are jointly administered by unions and smaller employers. The White House has rejected a broader request that union members in those plans be eligible for federal subsidies. Unions and many businesses groups also have been complaining about the so-called reinsurance fees, which start next year at $63 per person for everyone who has coverage. The fee drops to about $40 a person in 2015 and even less the following year. The temporary fee is designed to raise $25 billion over the next three years. The money collected is intended to provide a cushion for insurers from the initial hard-to-predict costs of covering previously uninsured people with medical problems. But unions and large employers argue that they shouldn't have to pay the fee because they won't benefit from the fund.
