GOP: ObamaCare compliance burden nears 190 million hours - The Hill's Healthwatch

GOP: ObamaCare compliance burden nears 190 million hours - The Hill's Healthwatch | Repeal Health Care Law | Scoop.it

Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

It is unbelievable it will take this much time to comply with the health care law. This is not time giving care it is time dealing with bureaucratic red tape.

E. Thomas McClanahan: Obamacare destined to fail

With Obamacare’s main provisions nearing full implementation, the law is now moving through the economy like a statutory disruptor beam. It’s hard to see how this thing will ever be workable or affordable.
Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

OF NOTE: 

Perhaps the biggest unknown is how many employees will lose company-sponsored insurance. A McKinsey survey of employers found that 30 percent would stop offering insurance and pay the $2,000-per-worker penalty.

 Consultants at Deloitte expected 9 percent of companies to drop coverage, while Mercer’s estimate was 21 percent. The Congressional Budget Office, which provided the official projection of the law’s cost, was much lower. If there’s an exodus from employer health plans and those workers end up in the Obamacare exchanges, the program’s cost will explode.

States: 'Blindsided' by plan to shift costs of 'uninsurables' to them under ObamaCare

States: 'Blindsided' by plan to shift costs of 'uninsurables' to them under ObamaCare | Repeal Health Care Law | Scoop.it
Thousands of people with serious medical problems are in danger of losing coverage under President Obama's health care overhaul because of cost overruns, state officials say.
Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

This is what happens when you pass #trainwreck legislation without fully understanding what is in the bill. You become "blindsided" by the costs and full impact.  It is time for DC to stop passing train wreck comprehensive bills.  #NoMoreTrainWrecks.

 

OF NOTE: In a letter this week to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, state officials said they were "blindsided" and "very disappointed" by a federal proposal they contend would shift the risk for cost overruns to states in the waning days of the program. About 100,000 people are currently covered.

Within the White House, within the Democratic chambers in Congress and among the (overwhelmingly liberal) health policy community there was considerable anguish this week.
Jenny Beth Martin's insight:

OF NOTE: Beginning next year, ObamaCare is expected to newly insure about 34 million people. About half of these will enroll in Medicaid, the federal/state program for low-income families. Yet, if they won't be any healthier once they are in Medicaid than they were when they were uninsured, that implies that fully half of the entire ObamaCare program is one huge waste of money.
