Unelected Board with the Power to Control Health Plan Availability

Unelected Board with the Power to Control Health Plan Availability

The Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.com) launched a new billboard campaign (www.NOTaMarketplace.com) that helps shed light on the appointed, seven-member board of directors that will have authority, under proposed Minnesota legislation, to decide what insurance plans are available on the Minnesota exchange. As a result, Minnesotans will be at the board’s mercy when it comes to having a variety of insurance options available to choose from.

CCHF’s “NOTaMarketplace” Billboard Campaign Exposes Federal Deception

The Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.com) launched a new billboard campaign today aimed at exposing the federal government’s deception of the American public in rebranding Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) health insurance exchanges as “marketplaces.”

The Exchange is NOT a Marketplace

The Exchange is NOT a Marketplace

The Minnesota healthcare exchange is not a marketplace. It is not, as some have called it, a “one-stop-shopping” place for health insurance or “Travelocity.” The MN Exchange, being built under DFL Governor Mark Dayton’s executive order, and now advancing through legislation, has been called the “Minnesota Insurance Marketplace.”

The public will have no say over federal control of health insurance and medical care if the Minnesota Healthcare Exchange legislation (SF1/HF5)  passes in its present form. The Exchange Board will be exempt from all the  requirements that protect the public from runaway rulemaking.

Will Your State Remain Free?

Will Your State Remain Free?

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ deadline for states to partner with the federal government on health insurance exchanges is Friday, February 15. For the 26 states that remain free of Obamacare’s expensive and intrusive grip, the Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (www.cchfreedom.org) is calling on them to remain firm in their denial of federal, state, or partnership exchanges, all of which lead to federal control of healthcare, intrusiveness into private data for citizens, and costly penalties for a wide range of employers.

Reality #7 – Health Insurance Agents in Limbo

Reality #7 – Health Insurance Agents in Limbo

Many health insurance agents fear the loss of their livelihood once government health insurance Exchanges are created and people begin to shop online. But Exchanges will not be simple. Thus, Obamacare established a new entity called “navigators” to assist individuals and businesses in buying coverage from federally-qualified health plans on the exchange. Health insurance agents will be only one of many groups allowed to become navigators.

Reality #6 – Exchange Board will Limit Insurance Choices

Reality #6 – Exchange Board will Limit Insurance Choices

Among the far-reaching powers granted to the seven-member MN Health Insurance Exchange board in the proposed legislation is the power to choose what health insurance plans you, the consumer who may be forced to buy insurance on the Exchange, are allowed to purchase.
