What’s in Obamacare, Part 11:
Tax Payer subsidized health insurance for low income individuals and legal aliens
Basic health plans for low income individuals and lawful aliens not eligible for Medicaid:
The Secretary of Health and Human Services will establish a guidelines for a “standard health plan” which can be offered by health insurance issuers. In order for a health insurance plan to qualify as a standard health plan it must provide at least the minimum essential benefits defined in the bill and have an 85% medical loss ratio (meaning $0.85 out of every $1.00 collected on premium payments must be spent on medical expenses of the enrollees).
Any state may enter into a contract with the federal government to offer a standard health plan in that state. Any state that offers a standard health plan will be awarded federal funds each year. The funds are to be used for the purposes of lowering the premium payments and increasing the benefits covered by the standard health plan.
Who is eligible to enroll in a federally subsidized standard health plan?
- Individuals who’s annual income is between 133% and 200% of the poverty line. Which is about $14,000.00 – $21,000.00 for an individual, or $18,000.00 – $29,000.00 for a family of two.
- Any individual enrolling in the plan must be younger than 65, and must not be eligible for Medicaid.
- An individual that is a legal alien whose household income less than 133% of the poverty line.
What have we learned?
Under Obamacare if you do less, you get more. So what’s the incentive for the lazy people in this country to get up and actually do something with their lives? There isn’t any,…but that’s the point. Obama and his lib cronies have every intention of making everyone as dependent as possible on the care of the federal government for every necessity of life. This bill is just the beginning of the liberals attempt to enforce a permanent lower class.
