Short Term Health 3-Month Rule Goes Into Effect in California

Received a notification from my short term health carrier, Tokio Marine HCC, that the new CMS/HHS rule allowing only 3 months short term coverage will go into effect April 1st.

Due to this change (was hoping HHS would void it), carriers re-filed their short term plans with the State of California. Currently, those re-filed short term plans are pending regulatory approval.  As such, it is likely that approvals will not be granted prior to April 1 and the product will be off of the market until such approval is received.  

If you want to get a short term health plan up to 6 months, you will need to purchase it prior to April 1st with effective start date of 3/31 or earlier.

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“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”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