re: Obamacare Health Exchanges: How Oregon Got It Done
1700 rules? Those can't all be from Obamacare. If the Obamacare people created that many options for subsidies, then they are idiots.
The bottom line is that nobody is capable of managing 1700 rules manually, not even someone with serious insurance training let alone Sally Jones, recently laid off single mother who never finished high school and needs health insurance now. I have been self-employed many times over my life and health insurance has always been a major hassle even when not eligible for any kind of subsidies. Who knows, with that many options, maybe I was and didn't have any way of knowing.
This is just another example of how Health Insurance is broken in America and how these exchanges should have been set up years ago before Obama even became President. The Insurance Commissioners of all 50 states should be ashamed of themselves for not doing this 10 years ago. Once they get these done, they should start work on exchanges for Auto Insurance, Home Owners Insurance, Life Insurance and every other kind of Insurance that the Insurance commissioners regulate.
