HealthSherpa - How To Build A Good, Fast and Accurate Reform Quote Site

3 young men in San Francisco, Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulous and Michael Wasser, got together to design a functional, easy-to-use and fast healthcare reform shopping site.

HealthSherpa.com works great, I tried it!  The only thing is that it sends you to carrier contact information to buy directly from the carrier but that is not an issue really as obviously they can't link out to the agents.  It also doesn't seem to link to the exchange.  

I understand that they put this site together in very short time and it is outperforming healthcare.gov and coveredca.  It's fast and accurate.  Give it a try!


They have also added a subsidy calculator on there so you can see whether or not to visit the exchange (Covered CA) or buy in the private market.

They did a great job, I like the look and feel and the very rapid results with a minimum of information input required.

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.

Anthem supports parts of GOP health care bill

Anthem is the first health insurance company to weigh in on the GOP's American Health Care Act.  Anthem operates in 14 states including Anthem Blue Cross in California (Blue Shield of California is a separate insurance company).

The company warned two Republican House committee leaders Thursday that without "significant regulatory and statutory changes," it will begin to "surgically extract" itself next year from the 14 states where it participates on the individual market. 


Anthem specifically praised the creation of a $100 billion fund that states could use to subsidize the cost of caring for sick enrollees.highlighted the importance of continuing the Obamacare cost-sharing subsidies that reduce the deductibles and co-pays of lower-income enrollees.Anthem warned that if the cost sharing subsidies aren't funded and other reforms made, the market will "continue to deteriorate."
