Humana Will Pull Out of Obamacare For 2018
The proposed rules aim to keep insurers in the market during a transition to a new system.
When you shut down ads, fewer people sign up. Bertolini was speaking at an event hosted by the Wall Street Journal Wednesday. "And in the first look at this quarter it's not going to get any better".
Gruber was also an architect of the MA health care law signed in 2006 by Governor Mitt Romney, which served as a model for the federal plan.
Unquestionably, the ACA has helped some people, but it has not come close to reaching the two goals supporters promised: coverage for everyone and decreasing health care costs. Some 14 million people have gained coverage through the expansion of Medicaid to people who earn up to 138 percent of the federal poverty limit, or $16,000 a year for a single adult.
The rule change would tighten the provisions to apply for coverage outside of open enrollment and require consumers to pay any back premiums due before signing up again.

"The new rule begins to address concerns about the stability of the individual market, but does not resolve all of the uncertainty for plans and patients alike", Connolly said. Obamacare exchanges have been plagued by a larger proportion of sicker, costlier customers than was hoped for. Martin Hickey, the CEO of New Mexico Health Connections, said that premiums for their plans may rise as little as 7 percent or soar as much as 40 percent.
CMS is also releasing a revised proposed timeline for the qualified health plan certification and rate review process for plan year 2018. The insurer announced in December that it was writing off a $583 million loss from the federal government over Obamacare. Now Humana is pulling out of the exchanges.
As HHS tried to stabilize Obamacare while Congress debates its ultimate fate, the IRS is relaxing its plans to enforce the ACA's tax penalty. But some analysts note that the high-profile departures don't necessarily reflect the overall health of Obamacare's marketplaces since other companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield dominate the space.
Taxpayers may still owe the penalty if they don't have coverage, however.
"Not only would it have dramatic effects on health coverage, it would also shake our state's economy to its core", Heinrich said in the statement, which was read by Cynthia Hull.
