ICYMI: WSJ Editorial Board: “Aetna Says Sayonara To Obamacare”

“The GOP’s American Health Care Act includes tools that can mitigate some of the damage, and over time nurture a richer, more liquid insurance market.” Aetna Says Sayonara to Obamacare Editorial Wall Street Journal May 11, 2017 … Aetna said on Wednesday that it will withdraw individual market plans in Nebraska and Delaware, meaning it will participate in zero exchanges in 2018. Last week the insurer bolted from Iowa and Virginia, and the four states were the last vestiges of its original ObamaCare expansion to 15 states. Even as the rest of its business is performing handsomely, Aetna expects to lose about $200 million on ObamaCare this year, on top of writedowns nearing $700 million between 2014 and 2016. Humana has also left the exchanges altogether, Anthem is edgy, and the familiar problem is ObamaCare’s structural undertow. Despite subsidies and mandates, the regulations are too restrictive and insurers aren’t allowed to profitably sell products that can attract enough people to square the economics. … The GOP’s American Health Care Act includes tools that can mitigate some of the damage, and over time nurture a richer, more liquid insurance market. The failure to pass the reform this spring has contributed to business uncertainty, but there’s still time to provide more stability—though it is running out fast. Read the full editorial here.

Aetna Abandons Obamacare Totally: See You In September?

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk.com, Bye bye, so long farewell, Aetna fully exits Obamacare exchanges with pull-out in two states Health insurer Aetna Inc said on Wednesday it will exit the 2018 Obamacare individual insurance market in Delaware and Nebraska – the two remaining states where it offered the plans.   Aetna had already said it would exit the individual commercial market in Virginia and Iowa, after pulling out of several other states last year.   Aetna has now “completely exited the exchanges,” the company said in an emailed statement.   Insurers Humana Inc and UnitedHealth Group Inc have also pulled out of most of the government-subsidized individual health insurance market.   Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives last week voted to undo the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare, the signature domestic achievement of former President Barack Obama.   But even if the Republicans’ bill – known as the American Health Care Act – is passed by the Senate it would not solve a critical outstanding issue for insurers looking at 2018: Will the government continue to fund the cost-sharing subsidies that help individuals pay for care?   Health insurers have said they cannot plan amid the uncertainty. In addition, the balance of sick and healthy customers has been worse than expected, and premium rates on the individual insurance market went up 25 percent this year. Republican Madness I fail to understand House speaker Paul Ryan and president Trump attempting to fix Obamacare before it blows up. The proper strategy would have been to wait for Obamacare to implode on its own merits. A complete implosion cannot take more than another year or so, and at that time Democrats would have been begging the Trump administration to “do something”. See You In September? I am quite certain we will not see Aetna in September but by September we may have Senate revisions to the House Obamacare replacement. Trumpcare On a more serious note, on May 4 I wrote Republican Sponsored “Trumpcare” Passes House: Hooray? Let’s assume that months from now (and that’s about how long it will take) some sort of compromise bill passes the Senate. Let’s also assume the House votes to go along.   Then there will be winners and losers, but far more losers than winners. The losers will be upset. Even those unaffected may be upset if they blame the bill for increasing their costs.   For What?   This folly could cost the Republicans their majority in the 2018 midterm election.   For what? The bill nibbles around the edges and provides no incentives to lower costs.   This is a disaster on-deck with virtually no chance of an upside. Republicans now own healthcare (Trumpcare) whether a compromise bill passes or not.   Hooray?
