The penultimate question is this.

Apr 05 2017 - Obamacare

It's hard for me to believe that any state would take us back ... when it comes to the protections that consumers have for pre-existing conditions. There is no doubt that Obamacare as a system is not working very well, but nobody wants to go backward.feedback

Will Anthem, part of the Blue Cross Blue Shield exchange market backbone left in most of the states, really exit? Or, is this just a negotiating ploy just as the Trump administration is about to make key decisions regarding the Obamacare exchange market for 2018? I have my doubts that Anthem will end up exiting the Obamacare exchanges.feedback

While Anthem is a publicly traded company, its legacy Blue Cross plans in the 14 states in which it participates have a long tradition of being a community partner.feedback

Nov 25 2016

Health care is just really big and it's complex. You change one thing here, somebody loses there. And they're going to change a lot of things. It is about a hundred thousand times easier to screw it up than get it right.feedback

Nov 25 2016 - Obamacare

The bottom line here is the Trump administration owns Obamacare for the next two years. They're going to have to implement it pretty much as it is, because the kind of replacement plan they're talking about it so significantly different, you can't just pull little pieces out of this.feedback

Nov 11 2016 - Affordable Care Act

Aug 16 2016 - Affordable Care Act

What I find most disconcerting is that the local Blue Cross plans are in a real bind here.

I don't think you can underestimate just how critical the instability of the ACA risk pool is.feedback

Aug 16 2016

People had hoped the risk pool would have stabilized midway through the third year.feedback
