White House weighing plan to extend ObamaCare’s “risk corridor,” i.e. bailout, program beyond 2016?

posted at 4:41 pm on February 18, 2014 by Allahpundit

The program’s supposed to be transitional, sunsetting in 2016 after the new exchanges have had a few years to launch and then stabilize.

Emphasis on “supposed to be.”

Industry insiders told the Washington Examiner a plan to extend the Affordable Care Act’s “risk corridors” are under discussion, but that administration officials have not made a final decision…

The Obama Administration is now weighing a plan to grant an additional three-year extension for non-complaint plans on the individual market. Such a move would prevent millions of people from losing their policies in the critical weeks and months before the 2014 election.

But it would also allow people on the individual market to keep non-compliant plans beyond the risk corridor’s 2016 expiration date, leaving health insurance companies serving the exchange vulnerable to financial losses as the more healthy customers continue to stay out of the exchanges.

Health insurance companies are looking for something in exchange for the three-year extension, which will make it much harder for them to sign up healthier and younger customers. Extending the risk corridor program is part of that conversation with the White House, industry sources said.

Remember back in November when Obama was eating truckloads of crap for breaking his “if you like your plan” promise? His solution was to let insurers “un-cancel” canceled plans — but lost in the hubbub at the time was the fact that he said he’d allow it for just one year. The obvious problem with that timeline is that it means this issue will bubble up again this fall, just in time for the midterms. New solution, then: Quietly allow insurers to keep un-canceled plans in effect past the midterms, for another three years. That’s how Obama just “solved” his little electoral problem with the employer mandate, isn’t it? Three-year extensions across the board, to minimize the damage to Democrats from his pet boondoggle in November. The problem is, because the old un-canceled plans are typically cheaper than expensive new “comprehensive” ObamaCare exchange plans, the extension means insurers are suddenly looking at less revenue than they counted on all the way through 2017. That’s where the “risk corridors” come in. Assuming the Examiner’s report is true, the White House is going to make this worth the industry’s while by extending the timeline for the bailout program too. Any losses they suffer in 2017 would, presumably, be partly offset by Uncle Sam even though the “risk corridor” is supposed to have terminated by then. Your tax dollars will buy insurers’ complicity in yet another illegal extension.

Bob Laszewski kinda sorta saw this coming, by the way. Last month he published a post arguing that, for all its faults, ObamaCare won’t cause a death spiral in the insurance industry anytime soon. The reason: The “risk corridor” program. Since Uncle Sam’s on the hook for any heavy losses in the industry, insurers are under no immediate pressure to raise premiums, the potential trigger of a death spiral. They can keep premiums artificially low — at least for a few years, until the “risk corridor” sunsets. Laszewski figured insurers would give the White House one more chance next year to get their act together on implementation and to start signing up the uninsured en masse; if they failed, he said, he expected companies to start parachuting out of the exchanges in 2016 before the “risk corridor” program expires. Which is to say, it’s very much in the White House’s interest to keep the program in effect, if it can, to keep insurers from abandoning the exchanges, especially if HHS has reason to think the risk pools they’re projecting will be less young and healthy than they had hoped. (And they do have such a reason at the moment.) The last thing Democrats need in a presidential election year is “Insurers give up on ObamaCare” headlines. Promise them some more sugar and you can avoid that. Maybe.

It seems naive at this point to ask whether the White House could extend the “risk corridor” unilaterally or whether that would be illegal. If they want to do it, they’ll do it regardless. O’s theory in issuing periodic delays or extensions for ObamaCare’s provisions is that, during the law’s transitional phase, he has some latitude legally to tweak implementation to make it go more smoothly. Extending the “risk corridors” past 2016, though, would mean the “transitional” phase had lasted past the end of his own presidency. It’s dubious, but it’s also in character. Here’s a question, though: Why would insurers leak this info now, when Marco Rubio’s trying to build support within the GOP for a bill to repeal the “risk corridor” program? He’s had little luck getting it on the leadership’s radar but his luck could change now that rumors are swirling that the bailout provisions might be extended into 2017 and beyond. The recent CBO numbers that found that the “risk corridor” could actually make money for taxpayers is a problem for the GOP, but (a) CBO’s numbers can be challenged and (b) CBO assumed that the “risk corridor” would be gone by 2016. Even if O decides to unilaterally extend the program, a new Republican Senate next year could join forces with some red-state Dems and Boehner’s House majority to repeal it, forcing Obama to either acquiesce in the repeal or to veto it and be seen as singlehandedly defending indefinite bailouts for insurers. Very strange that insurance industry sources, who stand to benefit, would be blabbing about this now.

… from the Washington Examiner [Susan Ferrechio] …

Obamacare changes may include extension of risk corridors

 Susan Ferrechio                             | FEBRUARY 17, 2014 AT 5:18 AM

The Obama Administration may extend beyond 2016 a federal reimbursement program for health insurance companies that lose money by participating in the newly created health care exchanges.

Industry insiders told the Washington Examiner a plan to extend the Affordable Care Act’s “risk corridors” are under discussion, but that administration officials have not made a final decision.

The risk corridor program was written into the 2,700-page health care bill to help the insurance companies offset losses if they enroll too few healthy customers and sign up too many people with high health care costs.

Risk corridors are aimed at keeping premiums from skyrocketing by requiring the government to “share in the risk associated with the new marketplace,” according to the health care lobbying group America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP).

Insurance companies pay into a pool to cover losses for companies that fare poorly but the federal government must step in if there is widespread loss, which some say could happen due to the lack of participation on the health care exchanges from young and healthy individuals.

The program, however is only meant to be short term, AHIP said, to “ease the transition between the old and new marketplace.”

But the disastrous rollout of the law resulted in millions of people on the individual market losing health care policies that did not include the “essential benefits” required under the new health care law, including maternity care and pediatric dentistry. The resulting public outcry prompted President Obama on Nov. 14 to announce that health insurance companies could allow customers to keep their old plans for an extra year.

The Obama Administration is now weighing a plan to grant an additional three-year extension for non-complaint plans on the individual market. Such a move would prevent millions of people from losing their policies in the critical weeks and months before the 2014 election.

But it would also allow people on the individual market to keep non-compliant plans beyond the risk corridor’s 2016 expiration date, leaving health insurance companies serving the exchange vulnerable to financial losses as the more healthy customers continue to stay out of the exchanges.

Health insurance companies are looking for something in exchange for the three-year extension, which will make it much harder for them to sign up healthier and younger customers. Extending the risk corridor program is part of that conversation with the White House, industry sources said.

“If the extension increases adverse selection, premiums will go up and taxpayers will be on the hook for more money through extending the risk corridors,” Mike Tanner, a health care policy scholar at the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, said. “The question is, how much? And I don’t think anybody knows because I don’t think anybody knows how many people we are talking about.”

John C. Goodman, the president and CEO of The National Center for Policy Analysis, believes insurance companies participating on the exchanges are headed for significant losses as the sickest and most medically vulnerable get dumped into the exchanges and waivers and delays are granted to the healthy.

In Detroit, for example, city officials are considering pushing onto the health care exchanges municipal retirees who are too young to qualify for Medicare.

“I can understand why they are talking about extending the risk corridors because I think the losses are going to be quite large,” Goodman said.

Health care law supporters point out that the federal government can make money off risk corridor programs. A Congressional Budget Office report last week predicted the federal government won’t lose a dime through the risk corridor program but will end up netting $8 billion.

The CBO based its estimate on the performance of risk corridors established under the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit program passed by a Republican-led Congress and signed into law by President Bush in 2003.

“The risk corridor program was a good idea during the Bush administration, and it worked,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said during a recent hearing on the program. “Rather than a bailout for insurance companies, the program has resulted in $7 billion in net gains to taxpayers. But now since these same mechanisms are part of the Affordable Care Act, Republicans argue that they are a bailout for insurance companies.”

Critics in and out of Congress want legislation to repeal the risk corridors and warn that Obamacare won’t yield the same kind of results as Medicare Part D because of the much larger size and scope of the new health care law and the potential for a much larger pool of sick and unhealthy on the exchanges.

“Medicare Part D made money, but I don’t think that’s going to be true here,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the former director of the Congressional Budget Office who now runs American Action Forum, which describes itself as a center-right policy institute.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. has introduced legislation to repeal the risk corridor provision in the health care law, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has no plans to take up the bill.

.. With the N.B.A. All – Star Game , Obama had a suck – up session with Charles Barkely . At one time , Sir Charles was a Republican . Someone obviously got to him , because he is now an ObamaCrap synchophant .
Geez , what a butt schmoocha thon …

.. POTUS seems to think that , in 5 years , people will not want the A.C.A. to be called ObamaCrapCare , due to not wanting him to get the credit .Well , this November , after the DummyCraps get their butts kicked and their clocks cleaned out (thoroughly , I might add) , people will still call ObamaCrapCare ObamaCrapCare , but for a very different reason …

.. In the future , when the DummyCraps are stupid enough to propose something even minor , it will get slapped with the ” ObamaCrapCare ” moniker . Oh boy , and how …. It will become an insult , for Republicans and DemoCraps alike …

… Yes , People Can Lie like That [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 12th,2014

.. Which takes us back to JayBoy Carney , who stands before the White House Press Corpse , day after day , and lies , blatantly , unashamedly , arrogantly , corruptly , and stupidly . Of course, much of the press is complicit in his lies , failing by omission to call public attention to them . They are also often by commission in uncritically repeating them , even supporting them , and praising them. People like Carney always eventually pay for the evil they do .

.. Unfortunately, these idiots , like POTUS , usually do a very great deal of damage before that inevitable payment . May God in heaven help us all …

.. In the meantime , I hope and pray that the 2014 election (and , in time , the 2016 election) will demonstrate , convincingly , that the American people are not nearly as ill-informed and stupid as the Obamites so obviously believe . Hopefully they will demonstrate what they think of liars as well .

… It is Not Often That I Disagree With George Will [immigration] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 11th,2014

.. but , to be honest , I do not agree with Laura Ingraham , either .

.. Immigration is one of the few issues on which I am on the fence . I am not wild about the idea of amnesty , i will grant you that . However , I am definitely not in favour of the DemoCrap ‘ s [especially the Senate] comprehensive Immigration bill . These days , these yutzes do not do anything ” comprehensive ” well at all .

.. As much as I would like to see each an every illegal expelled , I understand that it is not going to happen . The big question is , though , is what is the political price that should be extracted from the DummyCraps in order to grant amnesty . No , I don’t like it , but we have to deal with the facts .

.. Also , with the current political reality . Barack Obama is not to be trusted . Eventually , our fellow citizens are going to have to reconcile themselves that they will need to have a calling of accounts with that S.O.B. . Right now , we will have to deal with him . That means keeping him on as short a string as is possible ..

News Alert reported:

The indictment of conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza raises some troubling questions. The man leading charge against D’Souza is Preet Bharara, who does little to hide his partisan nature.

Can Dinesh D’Souza get a fair trial when Preet Bharara is listed as a “Obama Inaugural Donor” according to Open Secrets. All of this raises a larger question, why did Justice Department employees make the top 20 list of financial donors to Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012?

… Brilliant Job [Project Veritas] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,January 25th,2014

.. nicely done , James O ‘ keefe and Company .

.. recently , Project Veritas was in Texas doing an investigation on ObamaCrapCare navigators and their actions . They caught them pussyfooting around with a group called Battleground Texas , who is active with the Texas Democratic Party . Only Project Veritas got something that it was not expecting …

.. [link] to the video …

.. Texas State Senator Wendy Davis and her supporters were lampooning TX Atty Gen Greg Abbott , who is her likely opponent this fall in the Governor ‘ s election . One problem was the crude nature of their conduct. Her supporters were making disgusting and unbecoming statements about Abbott and his campaign . The other was about campaign fraud . The Battleground Texas people were making comments about election fraud and the forging of signatures on election petitions …

… Rev. Jesse Jackass with a CheapShot …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 27th,2013

.. comparing what is happening to ” Duck Dynasty ” star Phil Robertson to ” White Privilege . ” …

.. What a crock ! Considering the way that Jesse Jackson has operated virtually all of his adult life [race – hustler , blackmailer , extorter] , he is in no position to criticize anyone for anything . To be honest , he should be in prison , right alongside his namesake [his son , Jesse Jr.] because of the crimes and offenses that he has committed down through the years .

… This Court Case has the Liberals Scared to Death …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 24th,2013

.. and they have a likely settlement (it would be my guess) to thank for making the case ” moot ” at the U.S. Supreme Court …

.. otherwise , there were at least 6 votes to shoot down the union ‘ s favourite tactic these days , the neutrality agreement …

.. [h/t the Wall Street Journal] …
.. [h/t Cornell Law Library] …

..[link] to the WSJ editorial [from December 14th , 2013]

..[link] to the law library case description …
(*note* — the Cornell University Law School library site is a real dandy . It is fantastic for so many things legal . If you can contribute , great . feel free to make use of it for your legal needs …)

Does an agreement stipulating that an employer will remain neutral and give access to employee information in exchange for a union’s support of an employer-friendly ballot initiative, constitute a “thing of value” in violation § 302 of the Labor-Management Relations Act; or, must a thing of value be monetary for purposes of § 302?

.. the case is Unite Here Local 335 v Mulhall . It was up before the Supreme Court for oral argument . They were already held , but in December , the case was ” DIGed , ” or dismissed as improvidently granted . Basically , the case was (I think) settled to prevent a unions loss at the Supreme Court . I believe that there were definitely 5 , and probably 6 , votes to win the case . It would have set a disastrous nationwide precedent , taking away one of the union ‘ s favourite tactics , the neutrality agreement .

.. It would also , by extention , neuter any union ‘ s attempt at a corporate campaign against a company . The loss of the neutrality agreement would render the c. c. useless , since the company could agree to nothing , and the union could receive nothing in return . Neither side could do anything to stack the deck . It would empower individual members , as it had before , to sue to stop the tactic .

.. Eventually , a new case will make it to the court . The 11th Circuit case rings out loud as a bell , and sets a pattern that sets the way for a new fact pattern to be brought before the court . This time , the legal representatives will be prepared to block any potential settlement before a decision is reached ..

.. from the WSJ editorial ..

This has large potential implications for Big Labor, which has increasingly sought these neutrality agreements to make it easier to organize a work site. The rights of workers get washed out in such bargains that violate the Taft-Hartley Act’s ban on giving a “thing of value” to help organizing. Let’s hope the Justices find another case soon to make clear that such sweetheart deals are illegal.

.. LEC here again — So do I . I believe that a pattern has been set , and the Right – to – Work folks will have several cases that will come through . I hope that they do …

… Can the ObamaCraps quit Screwing Around ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 23rd,2013

.. POTUS did not enroll in ObamaCrapCare .

.. his aides keep saying that he did .

.. so , you dummies , quit the damn lying !

.. Presidents , VPs , senior Admin officials , and others receive their health care through the military services , to be specific Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital . They have the best health care that rivals anything anywhere in the world .

.. Also , when necessary , you are in D.C. . Baltimore is only 40 miles away , which means Johns Hopkins University and its world famous medical school and medical center . George Washington University is literally on the doorsteps of the District , less than a mile from the White House itself . It itself has a superb medical school (and medical center) .

.. So , cut the crap , you idiots . POTUS does not need to sign up for any ObamaCrapCare coverage . His family is covered , likewise …

… Illegal Immigrants …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 20th,2013

.. are not here legally , Congresswitch Pelosi . They will not have documentation . At least they will not have documents that will pass legal muster , Madame …

.. [h/t — www.theGatewayPundit.com] [link]

.. They deserve to be sent packing , if they are caught here . If not , then leave them alone . We need to do something about the problem of all of the millions of people that are here in this country illegally .

.. We also need to update our immigration system and our immigration laws . The current system just does not work . What the DummyCrats are proposing to ram through , though , will not work . A skills – based system , with limited (very limited) family reunification is what I think would work …
