Trumpocare/Obamacare – Visa/Mastercard

1
May 9, 2017

Our national useless dialogue on the future of healthcare in the U.S. continues. Trumpocare has a long way to go before it potentially becomes law, so no one knows  what it will finally look like. Obamacare is in a death spiral anyway. I’ve written about it before, and still believe this...

October 31, 2016

I have written before about predictions of the actual costs of Obamacare and the probable death spiral of increasing costs and decreasing participants. Several recent reports have brought more clarity to the cost realities. Recently regulators across the country approved rate hike requests by Obamacare insurance companies even greater than they...

MedPAC Says ACO Savings ‘Incredibly Unsatisfying’

October 24, 2016

A key part of Obamacare is not going so well. But before I continue, I assume that some of my readers won’t know some of the acronyms, so I’ll define them. An ACO is an Accountable Care Organization, which was created in the PPACA (Obamacare). The spirit of an ACO was...

The Obamacare Death Spiral

August 21, 2016

Several commentators have talked about a death spiral for the Obamacare health insurance exchanges. What do they mean? One of the keys for any insurance plan to work is that a lot of healthy people have to sign up to cover the costs of the sick. For car or homeowner’s insurance, losses...

Dumping Healthcare Costs on All Americans

October 11, 2015

I’ve written many times about how the march of healthcare hyperinflation continues apace, meaning that the inflation rate for healthcare and health insurance continues to be greater than the general inflation rate (most recent post on the topic by me). Another report sheds more light on how this is affecting all Americans...

September 14, 2015

Let’s start with some supposed good news. The headline recently read Jobless rate is lowest in more than 7 years. It’s officially at 5.1%, compared to 10% in 2009. But dig deeper. If people who can only get part time work and other people on the fringes of the job market are...

Obamacare Costs Rising

July 5, 2015

In a post I wrote about 7 months ago, I stated that it was too soon to tell what the real effect of Obamacare on the overall cost of healthcare/health insurance was going to be.

A recent report in USA Today disclosed the range of deductibles in the silver health insurance plans under the federal exchange of Obamacare.

December 1, 2014

It’s the reenrollment period for the Obamacare plans. Estimates before Obamacare was created on its effects on costs were all over the map. Some pundits thought costs would come down; some pundits but costs would go up. The early returns are in, but as might be expected, the findings are all...
