White House allows big firms to dodge health reforms
NYT: Obama lets firms dodge health reforms - Health - The New York Times - msnbc.com
The waivers have been issued in the last several weeks as part of a broader strategic effort to stave off threats by some health insurers to abandon markets, drop out of the business altogether or refuse to sell certain policies.
Who didn't see that coming???
To date, the administration has given about 30 insurers, employers and union plans, responsible for covering about one million people, one-year waivers on the new rules that phase out annual limits on coverage for limited-benefit plans, also known as “mini-meds.” Applicants said their premiums would increase significantly, in some cases doubling or more.
Is it truely expected that in a year the resistance will stop?
So much more in the article......
