BREAKING: Aetna declares it will exit all Obamacare exchanges

... : How Will “Trumpcare” Differ From “Obamacare?” | FITSNews

There is no doubt at this point that Obamacare is on life-support. As Republicans work hard behind the scenes to dismantle it completely, insurer Aetna Inc. announced this week that it will no longer be selling Obamacare plans in Delaware and Nebraska – the last two states in which it was still doing so.

“At this time have completely exited the exchanges,” Aetna said in a statement released May 10.

Though Aetna was initially one of the biggest players in the Obamacare exchanges, this announcement comes as no surprise.

At the end of 2016, Aetna announced that it would cut its participation in the exchanges by 70 percent, reducing the number of states it would sell individual Affordable Care Act plans in from 15 to just four. That decision was made as an effort to claw back some of the company’s losses, and came just two weeks after Aetna declared $200 million in pre-tax losses for the second quarter of that year.

“As a strong supporter of public exchanges as a means to meet the needs of the uninsured, we regret having to make this decision,” Marc Bertolini, Aetna’s CEO, said at the time.

Then, back in February, Bertolini criticized Obamacare’s markets, saying that with the increase in premiums, and more and more healthy individuals dropping out, they were on the brink of failure. In a video interview with the Wall Street Journal he went so far as to say that Obamacare was “in a death spiral.”

Chief Financial Officer Shawn Guertin indicated earlier this month that Aetna might withdraw from the exchanges completely to limit the financial hemorrhage that Obamacare has meant for the company. Even with representation in just four states, Aetna projects it will lose $200 million on individual health plans this year.

The Obamacare Health Insurance Exchange Marketplace officially opened in October of 2013 as an online marketplace for health insurance. The idea was that Americans would be able to obtain affordable healthcare coverage from competing private healthcare providers. Side-by-side comparisons would allow them to make the best possible choices for their families. On-site calculators would also enable people to determine if they qualified for cost assistance subsidies, Medicaid or CHIP. The promise was that tens of millions of Americans would qualify for such subsidies, available only through the marketplace. It was also claimed that 60 percent of Americans would qualify for coverage at $100 or less per month.

So, what went wrong?

Well, Obamacare has been very unpopular pretty much right from the beginning. While it is true that premiums can be as low as just $75 a month, deductibles often run into the thousands of dollars.

Natural News reported in 2016, that in certain states, premiums had increased by as much as 67 percent in a desperate bid to keep insurers from leaving the exchanges.

Over 8 million Americans were fined an average of $210 per tax return in 2015 for penalties related to Obamacare’s individual mandate.

Some people were also unhappy that they had to pay higher costs if they were cared for by providers that were not in their network, and that certain medications had been placed in high-cost categories by their insurers.

Critics of Obamacare have also called it a “job killer,” since employers are forced to obtain insurance for their staff members, increasing company costs.

Perhaps former President Bill Clinton said it best at a rally in 2016, when he said, “So you’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It’s the craziest thing in the world.”

Obamacare collapse continues as major insurer Aetna dumps ALL exchanges, leaving millions without options

Following lie after lie, the government-run healthcare fiasco known as Obamacare continues to unravel and collapse, leaving tens of millions of Americans paying obscene prices for unusable ‘coverage’ – that is, when they can get it at all.

One of the biggest lies of all used by former President Obama and the Democratic Party is that the Affordable Care Act would provide a myriad of choices of insurance coverage, an alleged aspect of the plan that would lead to more competition and lower prices.

The exact opposite has happened, in fact, as prices for monthly premiums and out-of-pocket deductibles have literally become unaffordable for many.

And now, as major insurer Aetna announces it will become the latest insurer to leave the Obamacare exchanges, millions of Americans will be left with no choice at all. (RELATED: Collapse: Anthem announces it will exit Obamacare markets this year, leaving millions of Americans with no provider choice)

As reported by Bloomberg Politics:

While the move is likely to attract outsize political attention, the decision affects just Delaware and Nebraska. The Hartford, Connecticut-based insurer already said last year it would pull out of 11 states, and in the last month announced plans to exit Iowa and Virginia.  

“We will not offer on- or off-exchange individual plans in Delaware or Nebraska for 2018, and at this time have completely exited the exchanges,” Aetna said in a statement Wednesday.

Bloomberg’s attempt to downplay the scope if Aetna’s decision undermines the wider, bigger, and more important issue that the insurer had already pulled out of most of its Obamacare markets, as reported by Reuters:

Aetna had already said it would exit the individual commercial market in Virginia and Iowa, after pulling out of several other states last year.

Townhall.com reported in April 2016 that insurers were pulling out of the exchanges “in droves,” severely hampering consumers’ insurance choices. The site referenced a study by the Heritage Foundation that Obamacare overall had dramatically limited consumer choice, finding that 45 percent of all states had fewer health insurance options than were being offered just one year before – 2015. And of the 45 insurer exits from the exchanges, 31 were “voluntary exits, with 21 of those completely abandoning all ACA exchanges – because they were hemorrhaging money.

Worse, the insurers that have remained in the exchanges have had to dramatically boost premiums in order to remain profitable – another lie regarding Obamacare told to us by the former president and Democrats, who pledged that rates would fall by an average of $2,500 per year.

The departure of Aetna from its remaining Obamacare exchanges is just the latest reason why Congress should fully repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with free market solutions that allow patients, insurers and medical providers the right to determine prices. The only way the U.S. healthcare system will ever be affordable again – for insurance companies, for providers and for consumers – is to get the government completely out of ‘managing’ our healthcare system altogether.

Political sycophant supporters of Barack Obama and Democrats, for some reason, are refusing to face reality and acknowledge the obvious – Obamacare is an abject failure, it is destroying family incomes, it is falling far short of providing the “universal” coverage it was supposed to provide, and it has created havoc and uncertainty throughout the healthcare delivery system. (RELATED: Obamacare will collapse under the weight of rising premiums)

That’s what is so far preventing Congress from pulling the plug on this grotesque, destructive law and letting Americans and the market decide what is best for their needs.

While the government certainly has an interest in the cost of health care as it pertains to Medicare, Medicaid and the VA, in a truly free market system it could use its massive purchasing power to negotiate for better rates – much like retail giant Walmart does when deciding what product lines to carry and from which suppliers. But that’s all government should be – just a customer among tens of millions of individual customers and purchasing groups who, themselves, could negotiate locally for better prices.

Obamacare is an abject failure. The signs are everywhere. It’s not going to get any better.

Repealing it, and returning to the people the right to decide coverage and care options for themselves, should not be as difficult as it has been.

Medical Doctors Accept Industry Payments—Oh Yes!

Catherine J. Frompovich
March 10, 2017

Taking ‘kickbacks’ from an industry one is a professional in, or involved with, has been classified in several ways.  The insurance industry calls it “rebating” [1].  Kickbacks also have been defined as “bribery” [2].  There’s an online site about “kickbacks in U.S. history” wherein the Cornhusker Kickback is mentioned.  That ‘affair’ involved congressional Democrats not having enough votes for ObamaCare to pass.  According to that website, Democratic Senator Ben Nelson’s vote supposedly was bought in exchange for some “pork” for his home state of Nebraska.  However, that ‘pork pie’ did not go over well, so the final upshot from congressional haggling was that all states would receive the same perks as Nebraska.

Nevertheless, how many healthcare consumers are aware their medical doctors also take kickbacks or get perks from Big Pharma?  Medical Press published the article “What’s the real extent of industry payments to doctors?”, which ought to enlighten patients and consumers as to why they may be taking so many prescription drugs and why parents are bombarded with mandatory vaccines for their children or else become ‘divorced’ from their family doctor’s practice.

A survey was taken with the results published in the Journal of Internal Medicine.  That survey, according to Medical Press, indicates “more than three in every five Americans see a doctor who receives some form of payment from industry.” [3]

One of the provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, was that pharmaceuticals and medical devices manufacturers must report gifts and payments made to healthcare providers, which is publicly available on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Open Payments website.

That survey claims 65 percent of respondents visited a practitioner who took payments or kickbacks.

A 2016 survey regarding payments to dermatologists published in JAMA Dermatology [October 5, 2016. DOI: 10.1001/jamadermatol.2016.3037] indicates 8,333 dermatologists received 208,613 payments totaling $34 Million in 2014 [4].

The top 15 companies were all pharmaceutical manufacturers and they paid dermatologists $28.7 million, which was 81 percent of the total amount disbursed, according to the study. [4]

So how much do you think was paid to pediatricians, the medical professionals who push vaccines and vaccinations on infants, toddlers, teens and their parents?  According to Clinical Pediatrics:

Between January 1, 2014, and December 31, 2014, 35 697 pediatricians received payments amounting to $30,031,960. [That’s million!]

General pediatricians received the majority of payments (71%). Median payment was $15 (interquartile range = $12-$24), mostly in the form of noncash items and services (84%). Significant diversity was observed in median payments among specialty providers. In conclusion, 42% of US pediatricians received industry payments in 2014.

That’s over $30 MILLION given to 35,697 pediatricians.  Let’s do some math.  $30,031,960 divided by 35,697 equals an average of $841.30, not $12 to $24!

Another way of doing the math is 35,697 multiplied by $24 [the highest payment in the $12-$24 range] equals $856,728; not $30 Million plus!  Is there a discrepancy variance of $29,175,232, or is my calculator wrong?

What’s going on; is someone messing with the math?

Well baby visits certainly seem profitable for pediatricians—doesn’t that seem so?  Those visits are the unfortunate times when pediatricians administer up to nine vaccines at once to infants weighing less than 25 pounds during one office visit. Outrageous!  That practice ought to be considered medical malpractice, especially injecting so many neurotoxic chemicals into a defenseless child whose immune system, for all intents and purposes, is harmed—or ‘castrated’ by all the toxins injected.  Isn’t that chemical child abuse?  Where’s legislation to deal with medical-toxic-vaccine [1] child abuse?


We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.

It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.

Holocaust Study: The Medical Cartel Is Destroying America

Buckle up.

I’ve been telling you about this for years.

***A message to “quack busters” who attack natural health behind a phony mask of “scientific skepticism”: put your own house in order—that’s where the real quacks and shameless killers are.

By Jon Rappoport

This story, nine months ago, surfaced and then dropped like a stone in a lake. Gone.

But I haven’t forgotten it. So here it is. Again:

The structures of medical propaganda are cracking.

The Washington Post (May 3, 2016) reports on a new Johns Hopkins study. I’ll give you the Post’s explosive quotes and then analyze them.

“…a new study by patient safety researchers provides some context…Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday, shows that ‘medical errors’ in hospitals and other health care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third leading cause of death in the United States — claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimer’s.”

“Martin Makary, a professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who led the research, said in an interview that the category includes everything from bad doctors to more systemic issues such as communication breakdowns when patients are handed off from one department to another.”

“’It boils down to people dying from the care that they receive rather than the disease for which they are seeking care,’” Makary said.

“His calculation of 251,000 deaths [per year] equates to nearly 700 deaths a day — about 9.5 percent of all deaths annually in the United States.”

“Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn’t require reporting of errors in the data it collects about deaths through billing codes, making it hard to see what’s going on at the national level.”

“Frederick van Pelt, a doctor who works for The Chartis Group, a health care consultancy, said another element of harm that is often overlooked is the number of severe patient injuries resulting from medical error.”

“’Some estimates would put this number at 40 times the death rate,’ van Pelt said.”

There you have it. Now let’s dig in.

First of all, this study, as you can see, is focusing on medical errors in hospitals and “other health care facilities.” Did the researchers do much work looking for fatal errors that occur in average doctors’ offices? If not, the death numbers mentioned in this study are on the low side.

The CDC, which regularly reports mortality figures, doesn’t receive data, nor does it require data, from doctors, on errors which lead to patients’ deaths. So the CDC is completely in the dark on the third leading cause of death in the US. This, of course, is the same agency that assures the public that vaccines are wonderfully safe and effective.

Consider the final quotes above. The estimate that “severe patient injuries from medical errors” are 40 times the death figure would give us this: every year in the US, there are 10 million severe injuries as a result of medical errors.

For years, I’ve been hammering on another landmark study out of John Hopkins. It was published on July 26, 2000, in the Journal of the American Association: “Is US health really the best in the world?” The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a revered public health expert. Starfield separated deaths from errors/mistreatment in hospitals, and deaths from medical drugs:

Yearly deaths from mistreatment and errors in hospitals: 119,000.

Yearly deaths from correctly prescribed medical drugs: 106,000.

The new study doesn’t specifically give a death-number for the medical-drug category.

So again, we can assume the new study is citing an overall death figure that is on the low side.

So let’s just round off the new 250,000-death figure and call it 300,000 deaths in America per year as a direct result of the medical system.

That works out to 3 MILLION deaths per decade.

And 120 MILLION severe patient injuries per decade.

This is the altruistic umbrella under which more Americans than ever will live and die, as a result of the glorious Obamacare insurance program.

This is the foundation on which doctors and medical bureaucrats stand, when they…

Obamacare in the crosshairs: GOP takes action in repealing ACA

Source: RT
January 5, 2017

As the Republican leadership of the 115th Congress prepares to fulfill President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promise of repealing and replacing Obamacare, Democrats have been vigorously defending President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law. For more on this, former Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) joins ‘News With Ed.’

The deepest secrets of Obamacare

Press reports indicate Obamacare is in a death spiral, because its structure is unworkable. Premiums are escalating beyond reason, insurers are opting out, and efforts to prop it up are at best a temporary fix.

But when has one of its failed programs ever stopped the federal government from pushing ahead? Increase the debt, fund the whole mess, task PR people to tell one lie after another.

There are hundreds (or more) satellite bureaucracies that have been birthed to support Obamacare, expand its reach, and develop strategies for bringing the whole nation under the umbrella of a national health care system. These “planners” are busy generating schemes for mandatory vaccination, increased psychiatric screening for children, lifetime tracking of patients, etc. The planners revel in devising systems (any systems) that corral huge numbers of people within one-size-fits-all solutions. If you told them there was a new federal program to identify all Americans who use the term ‘individual freedom’ and send their vital statistics to the FBI and the Pentagon, they would jump in with both feet, without a second thought.

But the real secret of Obamacare is in plain sight: it’s the medical treatment itself.

As soon as the proposed bill to create Obamacare was sent to Congress, I began writing about what was in store for Americans. Here is a later article I wrote in 2012, after a constitutional challenge failed:

—June 28, 2012—

I want my Obamacare! I want my Obamacare!

Well, you’ve got it. The US Supreme Court just upheld it by calling the individual mandate a tax.

Those who shout victory to the rooftops have no idea what’s in store for them. No idea at all.

It’s vital to look at the real effects of this sinister plan. It’s all about the effects of mainstream medicine. That’s what the sold-out press is refusing to examine.

The “share and care” humanitarian mask will be peeled away. The US Dept. of Health and Human Services will create, as ordered, a complete list of approved treatments for every disease-label under the sun. And everyone in the insurance plan (everyone in America) will be forced to take what the doctor tells them to take.

For a bonus, unapproved treatments will be banned. People and practitioners who try to use alternative treatments will find themselves in trouble.

This is the hidden agenda of Obamacare. This is what it will morph into in the future—unless it is repealed by the Congress.

I’m not dreaming or fantasizing. I’ve been following and reporting on the medical cartel for 30 years, and I know the mindset of these people, these doctors, these bureaucrats, these pharmaceutical string-pullers behind the scenes. Obamacare is right up their alley. It’s about control, so it’s an answer to their prayers.

So what do we know about their mainstream medicine, the hospital-based drug-addled modern version?

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a landmark paper by Dr. Barbara Starfield (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health), “Is US health really the best in the world?” In it, Starfield revealed what many people inside the medical establishment already knew: every year, like clockwork, the medical system was killing huge numbers of people.

Each year in the US, as Dr. Starfield reported, there are:

* 12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;

* 7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;

* 20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;

* 80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals;

* 106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.

The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000.

This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer.

In the wake of Starfield’s devastating report, other facts came to light: 2.1 million people in America, every year, are hospitalized as a result of reactions to FDA-approved medicines. Annually, 36 million serious adverse reactions to those drugs occur.

So, inclusive health coverage for many more Americans under the Obama Plan means these horrendous figures will rise.

This is the dirty secret.

Obama and his allies are promoting a medical system that is the third leading cause of death in America. It’s that stark and it’s that simple.

The Obama Plan involves appointing an “expert panel” to decide what treatments Americans should be given for what diseases, under the new regime.

Only a certified idiot would assume that, over time, alternative non-mainstream therapies would survive such an ongoing vetting. Hope may spring eternal, but common sense makes it easy to grasp the realities on the ground.

In the long run, alternative therapies will be edged out. Those that remain will be permitted for a narrow range of conditions, or as adjuncts to standard drug treatments and surgery.

Chiropractors and acupuncturists, who are temporarily basking in the notion that Obama “really cares,” are in for a very rude awakening. Their careers and practices will be significantly reduced. Not today, not tomorrow, but it will happen.

Doctors, under the Plan, will be telling patients they may not take nutritional supplements while in treatment. This will assume the status of an irreversible edict. In many cases, “while in treatment” will mean years.

What happens to a person, conscripted into the mandated Insurance Plan, who is told by his doctor that he should/must receive a vaccine? Suppose this person says no? What are the consequences? Will he then be labeled a defector? What penalties will he suffer?

Does a diagnosis of cancer imply a patient must submit to chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery? Can these treatments be forced upon him?

Perhaps, in the early days…

Flashback: Obamacare incentivizes hiring of illegal immigrants by imposing penalty on businesses that employ Americans

Obamacare

JD Heyes
September 13, 2016

As tens of millions of American citizens remain unemployed or underemployed or are seeing their wages stagnate, President Obama — as well as Democratic and Republican leaders — see no problem allowing millions more illegal aliens into the country to take jobs for less money.

In fact, public policy throughout the Obama Administration has encouraged this phenomenon, and none so much as the Affordable Care Act, which imposes massive new costs on American business and the entire private sector — anyone who hires American citizens to work for them.

Indeed, under Obama’s recently announced executive amnesty plan, “businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk” in Obamacare, The Washington Times reported recently.

The temporary amnesty, which is slated to last three years, essentially legalizes some 5 million who are in the country unlawfully. It makes them eligible for work permits, though it still deems them to be ineligible for some taxpayer-supported benefits like Obamacare, for example (though the administration has said the 5 million could be eligible for Social Security and Medicaid eventually).

“$3,000 per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants

The Times continued:

Under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover.

The loophole was confirmed by congressional aides and drew condemnation from those who said it put illegal immigrants ahead of Americans in the job market.

“If it is true that the president’s actions give employers a $3,000 incentive to hire those who came here illegally, he has added insult to injury,” Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, told the paper. “The president’s actions would have just moved those who came here illegally to the front of the line, ahead of unemployed and underemployed Americans.”

An official with the Department of Homeland Security, the mega-agency that oversees the nation’s immigration services and border security, confirmed that newly legalized migrants will not be permitted to take out health insurance coverage under Obamacare — and that, in turn, opens up the loophole for employers who are likely going to be looking for any way they can to avoid the employer mandate and resultant non-coverage penalty.

Health and Human Services officials referred any Times questions to the White House, which in turn did not return requests for comment. HHS is the lead agency managing and overseeing the massive health law.

In the days following his executive amnesty announcement, made Nov. 20, the president defended his actions. Traveling in Chicago recently, Obama said his policies would boost the economy and promised that they would not harm American workers.

We’ve been here before

“Immigrants are good for the economy. We keep on hearing that they’re bad, but a report by my Council of Economic Advisers put out last week shows how the actions we’re taking will grow our economy for everybody,” he said.

In fact, studies have shown that immigrants — most of whom are from poor countries — are a drain on the U.S. economy; a 2010 study by the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for immigration moratoriums, among other related policies, found that even “immigrants who have been in the United States for 20 years are much more likely to live in poverty, lack health insurance, and access the welfare system than are native-born Americans.”

Regarding the Obamacare-immigrant loophole, this is not the first time the issue has come up. An immigration overhaul measure that passed the Senate on a bipartisan vote in 2013 essentially created the very same scenario, giving illegal immigrants long periods where they could legally work in the country but have no access to Obamacare benefits.
