United Healthcare say they'll keep new h/c rules in place for private subscribers and smaller companies no matter what the SCOTUS Ruling.

    They are a huge company and this will only make them bigger.

    Now Aetna and Humana have joined UnitedHealthcare in promising to preserve several popular provisions of Obamacare.

    My take on health care reform is that I want what my senators and representative have. If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

    If they are able to hold the line on that decision, it will be very good. However, because it relies on most people doing the responsible thing and getting insurance even if they are generally healthy, I doubt they will be able to hold the line on covering preexisting conditions.

    Another one who didn't read the bill or knows what it covers or doesn't cover right now.

    Sure ... for awhile but they find a way to hike up prices elsewhere. No one expects the big insurers to suddenly grow a heart. I suspect the other insurers will follow. They picked up 6.6 million new customers , ages 18-26. They most certainly do not want to lose them, so they will offer perks.

    No telling what Medicare would do. "Better Medicare" ( ACA) currently saves hundreds of dollars for seniors with high drug costs. That would be suspended and so would preventive care with no co payments. Lacking legal authority, Medicare would have to take away those discounts and that would catch most seniors totally off balance.

    It's highly unlikely the SCOTUS will 86 the entire thing because they were only petitioned to look at 4 specific items.

    However, the mandate is toast (probably 7-2 or 6-3) and 0bozocare collapses without it.

    It will be up to Congress to deal with it and I foresee everything that is in place now, remaining until after 2013 when all funding is cut and it is replaced with a sensible health-care reform bill. Some of the icing sprinkle items will be included in the new bill but it wont even remotely resemble the govt. take-over that was bribed through Congress in 2009 - 2010.

    yeah it might toast the mandate, but if United keep the reforms in place, millions will ditch their current plans and move over to them. They'll have so many new customers they will be able to afford keeping the pre-existing thing in place, plus the older kids stay til 26.
  • Schläue~© flaca BN-0 2012/06/11 19:55:01
    That's one of the fallacies. The full pre-existing conditions provision that prohibits a company from denying coverage doesn't kick in until 2014.
    Right now, it only applies to children and provides ACCESS to insurance for uninsured Americans with pre-existing conditions.

    As I said, some of the parts in place will be included in the new plan but adults on their parent's policy until 26 years old and the govt. takeover of the student loan program are going bye-bye.

    which two things have already kicked in?
  • Schläue~© flaca BN-0 2012/06/11 21:59:50
    In regards to 'pre-existing conditions' ... I listed those two above.
    As far as everything else that has been activated so far, you'd have to visit a website for the list.
    Try this one and park your cursor along the time-line with the segments and years shown.
    Even the blanks without the check-marks will reveal what that provision is.

    if you didn't work for a large corporation, wouldn't you switch to United since they have benefits the others don't? I think it's quite smart. Many will switch to them.

    don't most employers aid in paying for health insurance?

    people who don't work for large corporations will switch to United. I think it's quite smart: they'll mop up millions of new customers.
