ObamaCare called fiscally unsound
It is not good to be in a habit of cynicism, and I try to stay from it. Let’s forget the ObamaCare mess. Now we are going to change the subject and create the Syria mess. I cannot see how Syria can turn out good.
There are no good guys here. The choice is the least evil and whoever that is will possibly end up with the poisonous gas and its factories. Regardless, most deaths are by conventional warfare.
For years I was controller of a local corporation. Each year I would put the comprehensive health insurance plan for bids. I would spec it as a family plan with a low family and individual deductible, a high lifetime limit, and the insurance company had to pick up preexisting conditions.
This worked well to keep costs down and guaranteed a high level of service. I personally tracked all claims. This was easier than dealing with employee complaints and I did not need worker distraction.
The family policy was about 20 pages long and the company policy was about 50 pages. That covered all I needed to know to administrate the program and even then was full of unnecessary legalese.
This 2,000 page health bill was submitted in a manner that did not allow Congress adequate time to analyze and make implementation procedures plans, cost analysis estimates, and program maintenance/management cost estimates.
In other words “Due Diligence” was not performed. As a CPA I would lose my license for such a negligent act.
My concern with what has come to be known as ObamaCare is it is actuarially unsound.
The lax and unintelligent manner in which people are recruited to market the product is wide open to leave the citizenry subject to identity theft and several other fraud schemes as unscrupulous scum gain access to policyholder and patient information.
