Where Obamacare Has Become Unaffordable, Short Term Health Insurance Can Help

Friday, August 18th, 2017

Forbes reports:

“Next time you run into someone who minimizes the problems with Obamacare, I want you to introduce them to Fay. She’s a reasonably healthy 60 year old grandmother living in Fayette County, Illinois and earns about 450% of the federal poverty level ($53,460) working for a small employer that does not provide her with health insurance. Right now, if she wants the second lowest silver plan in her area, she needs to pay 28% of her pre-tax income in order to get it — $1,247 per month. Fay just doesn’t have that kind of money and thus lives in fear of medical bankruptcy should something go wrong.

The Next ACA Battle: Extending The Children’s Health Insurance Program

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Forbes reports:

“The Affordable Care Act is an endless source of tortured political maneuverings.

Another example will soon demand Congress’ attention: Extending the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).   The program was created in 1997, in the aftermath of the failed Clinton health reform initiative, to provide health coverage for pregnant women and uninsured children in families that make too much to qualify for Medicaid. Congress votes regularly to extend this joint federal-state program.

A broker will help you avoid insurance pitfalls

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Business Day reports:

Like any other investment, whether it is stocks or properties or buying of assets, basic knowledge is necessary for a smooth deal. Where the basic knowledge is lacking, it is always advisable that you get an expert to lead you in the deal.

Insurance more than a number of these other investments, is technical in nature requiring that somebody going into it understand the secrets for effective insurance. Otherwise, use the broker because ignorance is not an excuse in law and worst is when someone has made loss, and there is a claim.

To avoid all of these cock and bull stories, take the services of an insurance brokers who by virtue of their profession understand the deal and can assist you to successfully undertake an insurance cover.

Cubs cut grounds crew hours to avoid paying health insurance

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Yahoo Sports reports:

“The Chicago Cubs denied an assertion by the Chicago Sun-Times on Friday that the tarp debacle earlier in the week against the San Francisco Giants happened because the club short-staffs the grounds crew at Wrigley Field in order to avoid paying health insurance.

A surprising storm at Wrigley on Tuesday night caused a long delay because chief Roger Baird’s working crew couldn’t get the tarp — which had become saturated with water as it was unfurled — to cover the infield quickly enough. With field conditions unplayable even 4 1/2 hours after the rain stopped, umpires called the game in favor of the Cubs, who were leading in the bottom of the fifth inning. In a surprising but just turn of events, Major League Baseball upheld a protest by the Giants, and the teams resumed the suspended game Thursday. The Cubs won 2-1, but not before being thoroughly embarrassed.

PPACA hasn’t killed COBRA – yet

Friday, July 12th, 2013

Benefits Pro reports:

“With full implementation of Obamacare looming – delays in the employer mandate aside – many in the HR world have been wondering whether health care reform will render COBRA obsolete.

The short answer: yes – and no.

While the new law has no direct impact to the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, the indirect effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act could eventually render COBRA meaningless.
