by
August 8, 2017

AnthemAnthem BlueCross BlueShield will completely exit Nevada’s ObamaCare exchange next year, the state’s insurance commissioner said Monday.

The company had previously said it would only offer plans in three urban counties in the state, leaving people in 14 counties without an insurer for 2018.

“We … remain optimistic that there will be coverage for consumers on the exchange throughout the state,” Nevada Insurance Commissioner Barbara Richardson said in a statement.

Anthem, one the country’s largest insurers, has already pulled out of exchanges in Ohio, Wisconsin and Indiana.

    So much for Affordable Health Care (O’Bama Care) whose premiums are so high as to be unaffordable to most Americans of the working class

    Anthem and the state of Ca is also a point of conflict..this would affect millions of the elderly in Ca if the State does not get it’s fat head out of it large butt….

    Thank Harry Reid, Nevada…Anthem BlueCross BlueShield will completely exit Nevada’s ObamaCare exchange next year…
    Then Thank Democrats for this terrible Law…Then Thank Republicans for More Broken Promises to Repeal this Law…Lies, Period!
    “R’s” Or “D’s” have the same goal in mind, Power and The Next Vote, We as Americans are an After Thought…
    What will You Do in 2018…

      I happen to agree with you…”We as Americans are an After Thought”.

    If they want to fix the market place all they need do is make any insurance company that wants to be part of Medicare part D, Medicare HMO’s, Medicaid or Chip also be part of the market place. If you want part you need to take the whole. The only part of the ACA that is trouble is the market place. Also just because they drop out of it doesn’t mean they aren’t writing healthcare insurance. You have always been able to go to your local insurance agent and buy health insurance without using the market place.

    Who could blame Anthem for pulling out…if the trend continues all the insurance companies will eventually pull out…ObamaCare is a dismal failure…Democrats have burdened the American Public with a socialistic/communistic health care plan that definitely is not working to the benefit of the American people or the insurance companies…It is costing everyone a fortune with no end in sight…By now I suspect ObamaCare is fast approaching a trillion dollars just to implement…Not to worry any…our government can always beg for more money from the communist Chinese to keep everything afloat and our government up and running…meanwhile our government is struggling to find monies to pay down the interest on these loans…with no end in sight.

      Now explain how a system run by private for profit companies is socialist or communist. You like to throw those words around but I fear you don’t even understand them. As far as the cost, you do like to guess at facts with no knowledge of the truth. The ACA was funded 100% by new taxes mostly on the very rich. Unless you are very rich most likely it cost you nothing.

      Here’s a summary of the five new taxes imposed by Obamacare, which would bring in an additional $567 billion in revenue:

      Hospital insurance tax – $212 billion.

      Non-compliance tax – $64 billion.

      Cadillac health insurance tax – $32 billion.

      Medical device and insurers tax – $107 billion.

      Raising medical deduction limit to 10 percent – $104 billion.

      Also, there were five areas where cost savings of $477 billion were implemented:

      Reduce drug subsidies to the wealthy – $87 billion.

      Reduce hospital DSH payments – $37 billion.

      Reduce Medicare payments – $197 billion.

      Reduce Medicare Advantage payments – $135 billion.

      Service education loans directly. That eliminated the cost of the private loan servicer, Sallie Mae – $20 billion.

      When the costs of $940 billion were deducted, the deficit would have been reduced by $104 billion. This would have been added back to the deficit if Trump had repealed and replaced Obamacare.

        Tax, Tax, Tax…Enough is Enough!
        Speaking Of Deficits…So What?
        Reducing Deficits Only Add to our Bottom Line National Debt…Reduce here, Increase There, it never changes!!

          History shows that the Republicans have increased spending more over the years then the democrats. Government grows under republicans and gets smaller under the democrats. Obama had less people in government then Bush. You see when a democrat wants to spend money the republicans make them pay for it but when it’s the republicans turn they try to sell the idea that it will pay for it’s self. Our present government want’s to increase spending and cut revenue at the same time. How do you feel about that? There’s a old joke in retail.
          “We are going to sell everything at a lose.”
          “How are you going to make a profit?”
          “Volume.”
          It never work out that way.

          • Webb

            Under Democrats The Bottom Line was Increased Over $ 8 Trillion Dollars, the last 8 years…Democrats!!
            All Are Guilty…But None Are Exempt!

            Did you miss US Government classes in school? All spending is done by Congress and all spending bills start in the House. Now who had controlled the House all those years? It’s easy to blame the President for spending but in fact it’s not one of his powers. Every dime the president spends he must get from the congress.

            Hey Webb! you left out doubling the so-called “Public Debt” in only the first four years under o”Bummer.

    • ONTIME

      I place blame on a number of elements in this matter because the moon was the limit for scamming the public, it was the offer by Barry Sotero and thugs, the insurance companies saw a gift they could not resist and now realize that Barry Care the Scam is not going to stand and they are fighting state line crossover market competition with the help of the RINO/Lib Criminal Affiliation …They do not want a return to the market based consumer choice or allow this single payer issue to fall…..Past time to reform the way our elected and appointed gov officials hold office..it is gov run amuck…

      • Roy Fredrichsen

        Maybe it is overdue time to clean house in Washington and throwing out all the Senators(Empire builders) and Representatives that come to Washington and become millionaires overnight, on congressmans pay? I don’t think so.
