Sebelius ´Urging´ Insurers to
Cover People Who Haven´t Paid

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 12/13/2013 11:36:46 AM

Fearing that many people will think they have health insurance coverage when they do not, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is "urging" insurance companies to "give consumers additional time to pay their first month´s premium and still have coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2014." Insurance companies should cover people who haven´t yet paid, in other words. With just a few weeks to go until Obamacare takes full effect, Sebelius announced additional changes on Thursday, some that tell insurance companies how to run their business and others that "strongly" encourage insurance companies to waive their rules -- on premium payments,

Unfortunately, the insurance companies are equal partners in the con game known as Obamacare. Can they be "urged"? Will they pull the plug on the whole mess? Will they be thrown under the bus like everyone else that Obama has used?

They might be seeing the light. Their bottom line under Obamacare is tied to young healthy people paying high premiums. That isn´t happening and is not likely to happen. Sooner or later they have to take a serious look at their bottom line and support a return to markets and risk assessment. I suspect their first move will be to ask for a bailout from the feds. This should go over like a lead balloon.

Wise words by Benjamin Franklin, the insurance companies need to hang together for a common cause, the survival of their businesses.

OP hit the mark. "urging" is not what the O and Democrats intend or how they prefer to rule.

Many would be pleased if Harvard was urged to waive all tuition and admission requirements. Airlines and hotels could waive fees for the poor.

So given the opportunity to take a free 30-day test drive of their new insurance policy, who wouldn´t do it? Hand the new medical card to the receptionist, go in and get your treatment, and then stiff the carrier. The carrier is going to sue you and 100,000 patients doing the same thing?

It is hard to know where to start. We are completely disregarding the fact here that many of these ´subscribers´ will never pay. The insurance companies will be writing off the costs and you may be assured that eventually they will be passed on to the rest of us. This insurance scheme has neither affordability or quality and when February 1 rolls around not much will have changed. I can hardly wait to hear the next round of demands from these incompetent socialistic jackasses.

Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008.

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
