MRMIB Moving Forward on Fed Risk Pool

MRMIB (California's Major Risk Medical Board) is putting together the federal major risk pool program for California. According to the most recent document, MRMIB is targeting PPO model coverage plans allowing for provisions to match the new federal PPACA guideline (no annual or lifetime caps, lower deductibles (under $1500) and so on).

According the the MRMIB, target date for the risk pool to be operating is September, 2010.

According to information provide by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) to the MRMIB, enrollment in the new risk pool could be approximately 25,000 California residents.

For comparison, MRMIP (California's Major Risk Insurance Plan) enrolls a total enrollment of about 7,100.

The risk pool funding will be a combination of premium from subscribers and federal dollars. No state monies will be used to fund the California federal risk pool.

More information as soon as I get it. Remember, the two primary conditions a person must meet to participate in the federal risk pool are:

1. Uninsured for six months or longer and unable to obtain private, group or public health insurance

2. Must have a health condition determined by the pool as a qualifying condition (these have not been published yet)

Mo Brooks Introduces One Line Bill to Repeal Obamacare

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

Kaiser Foundation Interactive Subsidy Map (TrumpCare vs. ObamaCare)

An interactive subsidy map provided by Kaiser Foundation allows you to see the impact of tax credit subsidy (2020) versus income-based subsidy (current).  Sorted by county in all 50 states.  Those above 400% federal poverty level would do much better, those below, depends on county and income.  Most below 200% would do much worse.  

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
