Obamacare ‘fix' creates new headaches, say insurers and regulators
Thu, 14 Nov 2013 22:17:23 GMT
Reuters – Insurers and state regulators say they fear that President Barack Obama's “fix” for policies canceled under his healthcare reform law could create new problems and lead to an increase in premiums. Facing pressure by lawmakers from his Democratic Party, Obama said on Thursday that insurers could extend by a year policies that were due to be canceled in 2014 because they do not comply with higher standards of benefits and other requirements under the 2010 law, commonly called Obamacare. Insurance industry officials say that allowing several million Americans to hold onto such policies, which may be cheaper because they offer fewer benefits, could keep more young and healthy consumers out of new state insurance markets created by the law, Obama's signature domestic policy achievement. The new markets would then have a higher proportion of sicker beneficiaries who cost more to insure and could lead to insurers raising their prices to stave off any losses.
