Feds Outline Rules for States' Insurance Exchanges
Date:8/12/2011

will help millions of middle-class Americans gain access to health insurance coverage.
  • Medicaid Eligibility: To reduce the administrative burden on states and make enrollment "seamless" for those who qualify, eligibility will be coordinated with Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program.
  • "Too many American families have been priced out or locked out of the health insurance market. Exchanges will give them control and could save them thousands of dollars a year," said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. "I am encouraged by the progress states have made to date and am excited to give them more resources to continue their work."

    Some health-policy experts argued that the plan is unwieldy and costly.

    "HHS keeps dipping into its ObamaCare slush funds even as states are sending the money back . . . and continues to claim that ObamaCare will save money, when every non-partisan expert attests that its taxes and mandates are already increasing premiums and will reduce jobs," said Michael F. Cannon, director of health policy studies at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C., a free-market/libertarian think tank.

    "Have they learned nothing from the recession or the debt crisis?" added Cannon, who said that the "'streamlined' ObamaCare rules . . . run more than 1,000 pages" in length.
