    Administration accused of ‘burying’ ObamaCare changes, as another deadline moves

    Administration accused of ‘burying’ ObamaCare changes, as another deadline moves


    Published October 11, 2013•

    The Obama administration is being accused of "burying" key changes to the federal health care overhaul, as discontent grows about the roll-out of the law.

    The latest surprise came this week, when the Associated Press reported that individuals will have to obtain insurance coverage by mid-February in order to avoid an IRS penalty.

    That's six weeks earlier than the March 31 deadline that previously was cited.

    While an administration official confirmed the moved-up deadline to the AP, the reason the public now knows about it is because tax preparation company Jackson Hewitt pointed it out.

    Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., in a written statement, blasted the administration for not being more up-front about these significant changes.

    "This law is about as clear as mud, and instead of helping Americans understand their new obligations, the Obama administration has been burying important changes -- not announcing them boldly as you'd expect an administration that's proud of its new health care law to do. Americans deserve better from the officials who are so committed to implementing this train wreck of a law," he said.

    The ObamaCare insurance exchanges already are open for business, though the roll-out has been plagued by technical glitches. Presuming the problems are worked out, the administration expects individuals to get covered by early 2014 or face a fine. According to the AP, the reason the deadline to get coverage moved up is because of the time it would take to process applications.

    Jackson Hewitt found individuals would have to apply by mid-February in order to be covered by the start of March. Since coverage typically starts at the beginning of the month, individuals would not be able to wait until March 31 to sign up and still avoid the fine.

    Alexander pointed to several other announcements and changes that were unveiled in obscure places or press reports.

    For instance, the administration announced it was delaying the requirement on some employers to provide insurance coverage via a blog post (though it was widely noticed in the media).

    The Wall Street Journal also reported, in advance of the launch of the exchanges, that there were significant design problems with the website healthcare.gov.

    Alexander noted that another issue concerning whether the government could verify eligibility of applicants was "buried" in the Federal Register.

    How in the world are they going to track that?? What a mess.

    We are going to be covered by DH's employer for at least another year, so no need for us to enroll at health.gov by then and from what I have read, the system won't be able to handle it anytime soon anyway. There are a lot people like us who will be outside the obamacare system. Is it up to the employers to report who they provide insurance for?

    Nine insurance companies are pulling out of Nebraska's major medical insurance market, and some of them cite Obamacare as the reason for their departure.




    Seven of the nine companies have notified the state of their plans to leave since August. Most of them have a minor piece of the major medical market in Nebraska, and likely don't think it's worth it to make the changes necessary to comply with the federal health care law.


    As Obamacare shifts into a higher gear, all Americans must buy health insurance or pay a fine beginning in January. Insurance companies selling individual plans can no longer sell cheaper, bare-bones plans, must offer an array of benefits and cannot deny people coverage because they're sick or old.

    Aetna, American Family Mutual Insurance, Humana, Independence American Insurance Company, Reserve National Insurance Company, Standard Security Life Insurance Company of New York, Companion Life Insurance and United Security Life and Health Insurance have all informed the state insurance department of their intent to stop selling health insurance to individuals - and in some cases - groups.

    Under Nebraska law, insurers are required to notify policyholders in writing of any such changes.

    State Insurance Commissioner Bruce Ramge was most recently informed of a departure Thursday morning, when he received a letter from Companion Life saying they'll leave the market at year's end, noting that increased regulations under Obamacare would make it difficult to continue. Ramge said the new landscape under Obamacare is the major driving factor in the companies' pullout, largely because of the administrative and policy changes they'd have
