Federal Heath Insurance Exchange will exclude 36 Mississippi counties



quote:

In October, health exchanges will become available in Mississippi as part of the Affordable Care Act, also known informally as Obamacare, but residents in 36 out of the state's 82 counties may not be able to take part.

Currently, no insurance providers are offering to sell plans in the state's poorest counties. Those counties include Wayne, Jones, Covington, Jefferson Davis, Walthall, Pike, and Pearl River. This means people who would qualify for subsidized insurance coverage will be unable to take part in the program, officials said.

A family of four making $50,000 a year in Forrest County would pay hundreds of dollars less a month in insurance premiums than a family with the same income in Marion County which is not covered by the federal exchange.

Cases like this are why Obama should have insisted on the public option.

We would not need exchanges if the democrats has simply adopted the proposal to end the state regulation of health insurance premiums. That would allow insurance companies to write the same policies across the country and not have to deal with regulators in each and every state.

I never understood why the dems were against that. Deregulate health care premiums and a natural exchange exists.

I think it was a pay off to the insurance lobby, not sure.

Have you ever met a Democrat that was willing to deregulate anything?

So all those poor people who were the reason we needed Obamacare in the first place still can't get insurance under the plan that was enacted to help them.

Brilliant! Only the gubmint can do something this retarded.

Which is why this travesty should have never been passed. Now, they pocket Billions, while care will drop like a rock.

These cases will fortify the Socialist push for single payer aka completely government controlled healthcare.

Insurance peeps and big pharma wrote the law in Nancys' office, it is more than due time to grasp that fact.

Maybe Ogump shouldn't have vetoed our exchange. People in the affected counties should take this BS to court.

This is going to be a disaster for all of America one way or another. No wonder Barry, Harry, and Nancy were so giddy once this got shoved through.

Republicans are also against this. Both sides are subsidized by the insurance lobby.

That's where my in-laws live. Better sell that house before the "rich folk" in the county get stuck with those new premiums.

Get somebody from Detroit to come down and torch the place, I hear they have skills on making houses go away.
