REPEAT-Small health insurers fear Obamacare woes will tilt playing field
Wed, 20 Nov 2013 12:00:00 GMT
Reuters – As the White House tries to address consumer anger and technical problems tied to President Barack Obama's healthcare reform, its proposed fixes risk undermining a key ally in the law's newly established insurance markets. Created with $2 billion in government loans, some two dozen not-for-profit health co-ops are meant to provide consumers with more choice in the Obamacare exchanges against far larger players like Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna Inc . But they were left out of a meeting between the president and top insurance executives on Friday to discuss how to allow Americans to extend existing health policies that are being canceled for not complying with the law's new requirements. They also fear that administration efforts to overcome technical problems with the enrollment website – by allowing insurers to directly sign up consumers – could put them at a disadvantage if consumers head to well-known names and skip comparing prices altogether.
