Federal funds earmarked to offset Affordable Care Act insurer losses

"he Obama administration has quietly adjusted key provisions of its signature healthcare law to potentially make billions of additional taxpayer dollars available to the insurance industry if companies providing coverage through the Affordable Care Act lose money..

The move was buried in hundreds of pages of new regulations issued late last week. It comes as part of an intensive administration effort to hold down premium increases for next year, a top priority for the White House as the rates will be announced ahead of this fall's congressional elections.

Administration officials for months have denied charges by opponents that they plan a "bailout" for insurance companies providing coverage under the healthcare law.

They continue to argue that most insurers shouldn't need to substantially increase premiums because safeguards in the healthcare law will protect them over the next several years.

But the change in regulations essentially provides insurers with another backup: If they keep rate increases modest over the next couple of years but lose money, the administration will tap federal funds as needed to cover shortfalls."



In other words, because the plan looks to be doing exactly what critics suggested and the opposite of what was sold to the people, we (the US Govt) are going to artificially hold premiums down by buying off insurers . . . . with your tax money.  Are you freaking kidding me?

LOL. Shocking that not enough healthy young people who don't really need insurance didn't want to pay for insurance they don't need. I'm shocked!
