CCHF Opposes Proposed "Risk Scores" on Individuals

CCHF Opposes Proposed 'Risk Scores' on Individuals

Citizens' Council for Health Freedom opposes this proposed federal rule, particularly the sweeping data collection plan, the mandate to create “risk scores” on individuals, the redistribution of funds that will likely lead to rationing of care, the fuzzy math that is “risk adjustment”, the “risk corridors” that will facilitate fuzzy math and fund transfers, and the power of the federal government to mandate reinsurance contributions by States.

CCHF Opposes Proposed Health Insurance Exchange Regulation

In general, CCHF is opposed to the proposed exchange regulation, which requires States to set up a federal structure by which the federal government will control virtually all facets of health care nationwide (coverage and care).

Obamacare requires States to set up federal command and control centers over health insurance and medical care. These centers are called "American Health Benefit Exchanges" or "Health Insurance Exchanges" for short.

Blame Congress for HMOs

Blame Congress for HMOs

Only 27 years ago, congressional Republicans and Democrats agreed that American patients should gently but firmly be forced into managed care. That patients do not know this fact is evidenced by public outrage directed at health maintenance organizations (HMOs) instead of Congress.
