We support the Trump administration’s attempt to restore freedom and affordability for care and coverage while we await either full repeal of the ACA or the development and growth of care and coverage options that are beyond the reach of the ACA and its rules, regulations, restrictions and costly requirements.

Tax Time = Time to Opt-Out of Obamacare

ST. PAUL, Minn.—As we begin the month of April, many Americans begrudgingly work to finish preparing their tax returns for the 2017 year. For many, because Obamacare penalties are not zeroed out until 2019, there’s special attention directed towards the Affordable Care Act and the tax penalties associated with going uninsured.

Stop Corporate Version of Single-Payer

Republicans have a plan to save Obamacare. They have proposed a $60 billion payout for managed care corporations (“health plans”). The proposal includes $30 billion in reinsurance funds (transfer risk-bearing responsibility to taxpayers) and $30-$35 billion in cost-sharing reduction (CSR) subsidies, often called bailouts. That said, it now appears the payout may have been stripped from the must-pass (by Saturday) spending bill to be issued today.

Kudos to Idaho Governor “Butch” Otter! He’s doing what CCHF has been asking states to do. He’s opening up Idaho’s insurance market to policies NOT compliant with the ACA. He’s not waiting for Congress to repeal the ACA prohibition against catastrophic coverage.

GOP Obamacare Illusion - Don't Be Fooled

GOP Obamacare Illusion - Don't Be Fooled

David Copperfield would be impressed. The Republican plan to lower costs is a complex illusion.  The GOP wants to “stabilize” (prop up) the Affordable Care Act with billions from taxpayers.
