Naming the California Health Exchange

Please feel free to submit your idea for a name for the California Health Benefits Exchange in the comments below. It won't make it to Sacramento but should be fun nonetheless.

According to David Gorn at Californiahealthline, these are the current 'nominees" for the name of our upcoming health benefits exchange in California.

More Traditional:

*Covered California

Interesting Names:

*Healthifornia (A Better State of Healthcare)
*Eureka (Discover Affordable Healthcare)
*Avocado (A Uniquely California Approach to Affordable Healthcare)

Apparently 'Condor' has already been eliminated from contention due to it being being both a vulture and in peril of extinction.

Personally, I like Avocado the best. So you can put me down as an Avocado man!

I wonder if I should change my business to 'Condor Insurance Services' (smiley).


As always, for specific health insurance information please visit my main web site at the link above.

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“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”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