Latest Info from the U.S. Government's department of Health and Human Services.
1.) The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today announced 141 individual market qualified health plan (QHP) issuers submitted initial
applications to offer coverage using the Federally-facilitated Exchange eligibility and enrollment platform in 2018. At the initial filing deadline
last year, 227 issuers submitted an application compared to 141 this year, a 38 percent drop in filings.
2.) Recent health care coverage gains are beginning to fade at the edges, as 2 million more Americans, mainly the young, and also healthy
middle-income Americans, became uninsured this year, according to a major new survey. Premium increases paired with the potential for high
out-of-pocket expenses, make owning ObamaCare insurance plans less attractive this year.
If the Senate passes the current Repeal-Replace bill, both of the above problems will improve, relatively quickly.
