Get ready for this one!! There has been a lot of negative talk about the states that didn’t expand Medicaid. You’ve heard the story, because these states didn’t expand, there are millions who cannot afford to take care of their health. They can’t get on Medicaid and don’t make enough for a subsidy under Obamacare. They fall into this “glitch”.
Hold on a second. Imagine out surprise when we came across this next story. The title is Obamacare Slaps States with $15 BILLION in new costs. Oh yes, it says BILLION. We are also talking about the states THAT participated in Obamacare.
Ladies and Gentleman we read this story, it was sooo disheartening. Why? Because as the old saying goes, “You are D_ _ _ ED if you do and D _ _ _ ED if you don’t. How can the people on Washington and even Insurance Commissioners think they are helping the public? That is the million dollar question that we would love for someone to answer.
Even as we are sharing this, we can’t help but wonder how many people have no idea this is coming down the pipe? Let us be the first one to tell you, when states, companies or organizations get hit with fees, PREPARE for it to get passed down to the consumer. Oh, you don’t really think they are going to Grin and Bear it!! They are going to share this equal opportunity and you will be paying for a portion of it.
We can’t help but wonder if those states that didn’t expand are somewhere now going, you put Obamacare in place and now look what is happening. You are about to get bombarded with fees for this and fees for that. I’d expect those states to turn around and pass it on to the consumer. Yes, it appears to be a vicious cycle. Will the states win participating in Obamacare or will they lose? Judge for yourself.
I want you to get the full details of this story, “Obamacare Slaps States with $15 Billion in New Costs
