If Potentially Illegal Obamacare Subsidies Being Paid to Insurance Companies Stop – How This Will Affect Your Health Insurance?

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Cost Sharing Reduction Subsidies are subsidies that lower the out-of-pocket costs for those earning less than 250% of the federal poverty level. These subsidies reduce the amount that a person will pay toward the overall deductible, coinsurance and copayments of the original plan.

However, a court has previously ruled that these subsidy payments are not legal, because Congress never appropriated money to pay for them.

And his pledge during the campaign (albeit a bit of backpedaling since) to repeal Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act, or the “ACA”) has perhaps created the largest and stormiest clouds of doubt of any of his proposed changes. read more

Changes to Individual Insurance Under a Trump Presidency

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Last month’s presidential election did not turn out as many people expected. Many people have been speculating as to how President-elect Trump will handle many troubled areas of policy.

And let’s face it: in a campaign such as we had, that was fraught with name-calling, we didn’t always get to hear a lot of important specifics about either candidate’s plans. But I’ve been thinking for the last several years about how we can make things better for everyone – heck, I’ve been selling health insurance for nearly 25 years now, and I’ve always thought there were ways it could be better, even before the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). read more
