Amidst the noise and spin, it’s time to get wise!

Below are just a fraction of the voluminous objective reporting on the true nature the GOP ‘self inflicted wounds‘ fueled by oppositional ideologues (aka K Street Beltway Bandits) courtesy of their ‘weapons of mass deception‘ campaign narrative alleging the non-existent ACA ‘death spiral‘.
Just one look at the historical rise of heath insurance premiums, an abject failure of the health insurance industry to manage clinical risk, has been a well established trend well before the ACA was passed in 2010.
To be sustainable, the individual market under the ACA requires sufficient enrollment numbers and a balanced risk profile. It also requires a stable regulatory environment that facilitates fair competition, with sufficient health insurer participation and plan offerings. Experience from the first three years of the ACA varies, with the markets in some states faring relatively well. More typically however, the results thus far indicate the need for improvement along most of these measures. – American Academy of Actuaries 2017
