Comment: Remember when the President said if you like your health plan, you can keep it? The insanity continues as millions of people above the poverty line are going to be forced into a badly managed program for the poor that has worse health outcomes than private insurance. Is this what you want for you and your kids?
“Government “insurance” exchanges (or “marketplaces”) are going to force many people into Medicaid, the government subsidy program for the poor.”
“As Brandon Clark from the consulting firm FrogueClark told CBS Charlotte, “A lot of middle class individuals are going to apply for a state exchanges… thinking they’re going to get a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan or a United Plan, like they had before… But they will find out they’re not on private health insurance, but rather, a state Medicaid program.””
“Section 1311(d)(4)(F) of the Affordable Care Act states that “if through screening of the application by the Exchange, the Exchange determines that such individuals are eligible for [Medicaid, State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or] any such program [the Exchange shall] enroll such individuals in such program.””
“…Clark says, “you could easily have a family of four or five making well over $50,000 per year ending up on Medicaid.””
