Chamber Asks High Court To Review Health Care Law

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Insurance News Net reports:

“WASHINGTON — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has been a fierce opponent of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, is taking a more nuanced approach in urging the Supreme Court to take up review of the law.

The chamber said in a legal brief filed Tuesday that it takes no position on the constitutionality of the contested provision at the heart of the law, the requirement that individuals purchase health insurance or pay a penalty starting in 2014.

But the chamber said the court should not do what the federal appeals court in Atlanta did, which was to strike down that requirement and leave the rest of the law standing. The business group said health insurers and insurance buyers would face “dire consequences” if the mandate is invalidated by itself.”

Health insurance for families has changed a lot since Obamacare started. Family plans will always be a plan in which all family members are on the same policy, but now there are advantages to breaking up a family and putting different people on different policies depending on their needs. The price is the same whether together or split up.

An example of this is when one family member will utilize the plan a lot more then the others. This may be a planned surgery or a pregnancy. These sorts of events can be planned for and thus we can put that person on a better plan with lower deductibles. The rest of the family my not need that level of coverage, so we can put them on a lower cost plan with a higher deductible and save money overall.

Now having everyone together has the advantage of a family deductible. First of all, family deductible should only be considered if the family size is 4 or more, because generally the family deductible is three times the individual deductible up to a maximum set by the government. In a case where there are multiple people who will be maxing out their insurance, your family may hit the family deductible.

The last advantage to having the whole family together on one policy is simply ease of billing, payments and cards. When every family member has a different policy, they each need their own cards and will be billed separately, but when put together its all on one card and one bill.
