Anthem Medicare Advantage LPPO and Sutter Health Group

Sutter Health Group and Anthem Blue Cross MAPD LPPO (Medicare Preferred PPO and Medicare Preferred Select LPPO) have been unable to reach agreement on a new contract.

As of February 1, 2012, Sutter will no longer be a participating provider for Anthem Blue Cross CA hospital and professional network. The ancillary services for Sutter will continue to be a participating provider.

Again, this contract issue affects Medicare Advantage PPO and Medicare Advantage LPPO subscribers. The following Sutter Health facilities are affected:

Sutter Roseville Medical Center - Roseville, CA
Alta Bates Summit Medical Center - Alta Bates/Herrick - Berkeley, CA
Alta Bates Summit Medical Center - Summit Campus - Oakland, CA
California Pacific Medical Center - California - San Francisco, CA
California Pacific Medical Center - Davies - San Francisco, CA
California Pacific Medical Center - Pacific -San Francisco, CA
California Pacific Medical Center - St. Lukes - San Francisco, CA
Eden Hospital Medical Center - Castro Valley, CA
Memorial Hospital Medical Center - Modesto - Modesto, CA
Memorial Hospital of Los Banos - Los Banos, CA
Menlo Park Surgical Hospital - Menlo Park, CA
Mills Hospital - San Mateo, CA
Novato Community Hospital - Novato, CA
Peninsula Hospital & Medical Center - Burlingame, CA
San Leandro Hospital - San Leandro, CA
Sutter Amador Hospital - Jackson, CA
Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital - Auburn, CA
Sutter Coast Hospital - Crescent City, CA
Sutter Davis Hospital - Davis, CA
Sutter Delta Medical Center - Antioch, CA
Sutter General Hospital - Sacramento, CA
Sutter Lakeside Hospital - Lakeport, CA
Sutter Maternity & Surgery Center - Santa Cruz, CA
Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa - Santa Rosa, CA
Sutter Memorial Hospital - Sacramento, CA
Sutter Solano Medical Center - Vallejo, CA
Sutter Tracy Community Hospital - Tracy, CA

I expect that at some point a contract agreement will be reached and will post when that happens.

Mo Brooks Introduces One Line Bill to Repeal Obamacare

Mo Brooks (R-AL) has entered a one sentence bill for repeal of the ACA (ObamaCare). Seen as more of a symbolic gesture (the bill did not go to vote in the House), he gets right to the point in a succinct fashion...

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”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