Insurance Executive Blasts GOP Health Care Proposal: 'This Bill Is Terrible'

Mario Molina is an exception. “I think this bill is terrible,” Molina, the CEO of Molina Healthcare, told The Huffington Post in a lengthy interview Friday. The company covers more than 4 million people scattered across 13 states ― including California, where it’s headquartered, as well as Florida, Michigan, New York and Texas. That makes it the 10th-largest health insurance company in the U.S., according to a 2015 government survey. Molina’s main argument against the bill is the same one critics have been making for months ― that the measure would expose millions of lower-income Americans to crippling medical bills, by taking away their Medicaid coverage or the federal tax credits that make it possible for them to buy private insurance. These warnings are consistent with the findings of multiple independent analysts, including the Congressional Budget Office, which last week predicted that the Republican proposal would drive up the number of uninsured Americans by 14 million within a year and 24 million within a decade. Among those taking the hardest hits, the CBO said, would be poor Americans who now rely on Medicaid and older consumers whose premiums would skyrocket because the bill would allow insurers to charge them much more than they can today. Even those who held onto coverage could expect that it would be less generous than it is today, the CBO noted, as the combination of looser regulations and redirected financial assistance shifted the market toward policies with higher out-of-pocket expenses.  You can’t say this is not my problem. ... This is your problem. You just don’t know it yet. Mario Molina, CEO of Molina Healthcare Molina, a physician, has an up-close perspective on what this would mean, making his commentary more valuable, less reliable or both ― depending on your perspective.   Molina’s father, also a physician, established the company in 1980 to serve low-income people in Southern California. And it has never strayed far from its roots. Its business consists mostly of insuring people on Medicaid (states contract with Molina to provide coverage) or selling plans to people who buy on the Obamacare exchanges and, because of their low incomes, qualify for extensive subsidies. The Republican bill would likely deal a significant blow to Molina Healthcare’s revenue and the skeptical take on its CEO’s perspective is that he’s simply trying to protect his company’s bottom line. But precisely because Molina Healthcare has a long history of working with lower-income consumers, it may understand the Obamacare private insurance markets better than many of the larger, nationwide carriers that make headlines in the national media. Molina is accustomed to managing care aggressively, by nudging newly insured patients into the primary care system quickly ― something of particular importance when it comes to insuring people who have gone months or years without coverage, and without ongoing care for chronic conditions. Molina also has a history of tough negotiation with doctors and hospitals, and limiting networks to only those who will agree to lower reimbursement ― thereby allowing the company to keep premiums low. As a general rule, the big companies with the names that everybody recognizes focus on other lines of insurance, such as administering employer plans or offering private Medicare Advantage plans, in which the market dynamics are very different. The people who buy those plans care a lot more about having big networks and aren’t as sensitive on prices. Those companies have tended to struggle more trying to sell individual coverage ― in particular, they have struggled to attract enough young and healthy people, whose premiums insurers require to offset the cost of paying bills for people with serious medical problems. Critics of the law say the skewed risk pool represents a structural problem with the law, because the coverage insurers are selling just isn’t very attractive to consumers unless it comes with huge subsidies that discount it deeply for the near-poor. This year the CEO of one of those big national companies, Aetna’s Mark Bertolini, declared that the program was actually in a “death spiral” ― the line that President Donald Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and other GOP leaders have cited over and over again as a rationale for repealing the law as quickly as possible. But analysts at the CBO and the Brookings Institution, among others, have disputed that verdict, arguing that insurers simply under-priced premiums for the first two years and are finally catching up. And just like Molina Healthcare has its own self-interest, Aetna does too. Specifically, it has been fighting to win federal approval for a controversial merger with Humana. Documents that surfaced in recent litigation over that merger led a federal judge to conclude the company has been trying to “leverage its participation in the exchanges for favorable treatment” from federal regulators. Aetna has denied this. Molina is not convinced. “There’s a lot of politics going on between Aetna and the administration, so you have to take that with a grain of salt,” Molina said. As for the state of the Affordable Care Act overall, Molina acknowledges some problems with the private insurance markets. But he thinks they are largely isolated to states such as Arizona and Tennessee ― and amenable to minor fixes rather than an overhaul. “You can think of it almost like a patchwork quilt,” Molina said, noting that states like California and Michigan have stable marketplaces. “In some states it’s working well and in other states it’s not.” Molina Healthcare itself posted a small loss in the last quarter of 2016, after posting small profits during the law’s first two years. But the CEO said that was only because it was required to pay into a “risk adjustment” scheme, designed to protect insurers from losses, under a flawed formula. The company had been complaining about this for years and the regulation has since been fixed, Molina said. “We added about half a million members this year,” Molina said. “Some plans grew a lot, and some plans probably got smaller, and they probably got smaller deliberately because they raised their premiums intentionally. So I don’t think it’s imploding right now.” Molina was careful to say that the current political environment has introduced a new element of uncertainty ― in part because, quite apart from the question of repeal, there’s the question of whether the federal government will continue to pay for special subsidies that low-income consumers get to defray out-of-pocket costs. Those subsidies are in limbo, thanks to a court ruling last year, and neither the administration nor Congress have indicated clearly whether they will act to make sure the money continues to flow. The lack of clarity, Molina said, means that even his company, which has been among the Affordable Care Act’s most enthusiastic proponents, is not sure what it will do in 2018 ― or beyond. Molina warned that if the GOP bill or something like it passes, and many millions of Americans end up losing coverage, the effects will eventually spread. He said the loss of payments would eventually hit the hospital sector, forcing closures particularly in rural areas, while eroding the quality of coverage available to everybody. “You can’t say this is not my problem ― I have insurance, this is not my problem,” Molina said. “This is your problem. You just don’t know it yet.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Obamacare sign-ups fall below expectations, last year's levels

Sign-ups for Obamacare coverage declined for the first time in the 2017 season and fell below the Obama administration's estimates for the three-month enrollment window, according to figures released Wednesday by the Department of Health and Human Services.A total of 12.2 million people enrolled in Obamacare plans nationwide between Nov. 1 and Jan. 31 — a drop-off from the 12.7 million sign-ups at the close of the last open-enrollment season. The Trump administration soon after taking office scaled back enrollment outreach during the critical final week of sign-ups. The Obama administration estimated that 13.8 million people would sign up through the law’s online marketplaces, or exchanges. Roughly one-third of the 12.2 million sign-ups were new enrollees, HHS said. More than four in five people nationally — or roughly 10 million enrollees — received Obamacare tax credits to lower their monthly premiums. In 10 states — including Florida, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Mississippi — at least 88 percent of enrollees qualified for that financial assistance. Those tax credits, which are based on income, would be repealed under congressional Republicans' plans to dismantle major parts of the health care law. House Republicans want to scrap Obamacare’s subsidies for new tax credits based on age, among other changes. According to the HHS data, roughly 9.2 million people signed up in the 39 states relying on HealthCare.gov and 3 million came through state-run exchanges that operate in 11 states and the District of Columbia.The Trump administration reversed plans to scrap phone calls and other forms of outreach to encourage sign-ups in the finals days of the enrollment period after the move sparked outcry from the law's supporters and health insurers. Officials said they were unable to pull back some HealthCare.gov radio and TV advertising that had been purchased by the Obama administration. HHS was able to cancel about $4 million to $5 million in ads.The enrollment report comes amid a spate of troubling news about health law insurance markets. Last month, Humana announced it would become the first major insurer to pull out of the market completely next year. Molina, which had an unexpected loss, said it would assess ongoing participation at a later date. Other insurers are sounding alarms.

Speaker Ryan on Fox News: Our Proposal Will Lower Premiums

Summary: Today, Speaker Ryan appeared on Fox News’s Special Report with Bret Baier to discuss the CBO’s score of the American Health Care Act. Our bill will lower premiums.“What I’m encouraged [by] is, once our reforms kick in, what the CBO is telling us is, it’s going to lower premiums—it will lower premiums 10 percent. It stabilizes the market. It’s a $1.2 trillion spending cut, an $883 billion tax cut, and $337 billion in deficit reduction. So of course the CBO is going to say if you’re not going to force people to buy something they don’t want to buy, they won’t buy it. But at the same time, they’re saying our reforms will kick in and lower premiums and make health care therefore more accessible.” It’s part of a three-pronged approach. “This is just part one of a three part plan, and that’s why I’m excited. Just this they say lowers premiums, stabilizes the market, gives people more choice and freedom. Part two is Tom Price at HHS brings more choice and competition, lets the states open up markets, which will lower prices even more. And part three are the other bills that we will be passing—interstate shopping across state lines, association health care plans to let people bulk buy insurance nationwide, medical liability reform. Those will drop premiums even further, and make health care even more accessible than CBO is in an encouraging way saying.” And it will deliver relief from the status quo.“Don't forget one thing here. Obamacare is in the middle of a collapse. Only five states have one insurer left. Over 1,000 counties in America have only one insurer left. Humana just announced that they are pulling out. That means zero plans in 2018 for those people. By the way, we just got a letter from Anthem, one of the biggest insurers, that are telling us if the status quo stays, they are going to surgically pull out of markets as well. So put this against the backdrop that Obamacare is collapsing. The insurers are telling us premium increases this year, 25% on average, will be even higher next year. This compared to the status quo is far better.”

Remarks by the Vice President in Louisville, KY on Obamacare

Harshaw Trane Louisville, Kentucky 11:20 A.M. EST THE VICE PRESIDENT:  Hello, Kentucky! AUDIENCE MEMBERS:  Hello! THE VICE PRESIDENT:  Thank you, Governor, for that great introduction.  And, ladies and gentleman, how about that Governor Matt Bevin?  Everybody, isn’t he something.  (Applause.)  Kentucky, I truly do believe -- I like to say to people I was for Matt Bevin before it was cool.  (Laughter.)  Kentucky really is blessed to have such a principled leader who’s doing such great things for the state, restoring fiscal responsibility, rolling back red tape, and today, because of Governor Matt Bevin, Kentucky is now a right-to-work state. Kentucky is open for business.  (Applause.)   Governor, the President and I are proud to partner with you to make Kentucky great again, as we make America great again.  (Applause.)  I get along great with people from Kentucky, except in March.  (Laughter.)  It’s gets a little testy some evenings.  But the same goes with all my strong feeling about your governor goes for other dedicated public servants who are here.  State Senator Ralph Alvarado just joined us for a great discussion.  And two great congressmen who I served with in Washington, D.C.  Congressman Andy Barr and Congressman Brett Guthrie, would you all just take -- stand up and let these people show how much they appreciate your conservative stand in Washington, D.C.  (Applause.)  Thank you both.  And I got to tell you it’s great to be in the home state of the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell.  He’s a true friend to me, to our President, and to the people of America.  (Applause.)   Great to have the privilege to be back in the Bluegrass State.  Last fall, thanks to all of you here in Kentucky, to your hard work, your support, and your prayers, Kentucky voted to make Donald Trump the 45th President of the United States of America in a decisive vote.  (Applause.)  And it was quite a campaign, wasn’t it?  And it’s been quite an administration, too.  I got to tell you on a very personal level, it’s the greatest honor of my life to serve as Vice President to President Donald Trump.  And I want to thank you all for the privilege.  (Applause.)  The President is a man of boundless energy, optimism.  I like to say he’s got broad shoulders and a big heart. And speaking of which, the President asked me late yesterday when we were leaving the White House in the evening to just say thanks to everyone gathered here today.  Hardworking Americans like all of you were some of our biggest supporters.  And on behalf of President Trump, thank you.  Thank you for your support, and thank you for being here today.  We're truly grateful.  (Applause.)   And to all the business owners who are with us here today, I enjoyed our discussion earlier.  The Governor and I had a brisk discussion about the challenges that -- changes in healthcare in this country since 2010 have presented to business.  I appreciate your candid feedback about what our administration can do to help your businesses succeed and grow.  And I have to tell you one other person I want to mention before I thank our host, it is always good to have Papa John in the house.  John Schnatter and his wonderful wife are with us today.  The Midwest is proud that you call Kentucky and America home.  (Applause.)  John, thank you.  There he is.   But last but not least, on behalf of the President, let me thank Harshaw Trane for their hospitality.  While Frank Harshaw couldn’t be here today, not only do I appreciate the warm welcome of his team -- Richard and Tom and Lou -- we just so admire Frank building an extraordinary business, someone who grew up in foster care.  Frank and his story are the story of the American Dream.  And would you join me in thanking them for allowing this great business to be our backdrop.  (Applause.)   And all of those who run businesses, own businesses, or work in small business, let me make you a promise:  The President wants you to know that our administration will be the best friend America’s small businesses will ever have.  (Applause.)  And the President and I know that small businesses are the engines of the American economy.  As President Trump said in his joint address to Congress just last week, we’re going to “restart the engine” to create jobs and prosperity and growth in America like never before.  You know, I grew up in a small business family, just a little bit north of here in Columbus, Indiana.  I went to work at my father’s gas station when I was only 14 years of age.  I was actually what was called a gas station attendant.  If you're under the age of 30, I’ll explain to you after the program exactly what that was.   But as the world also knows, the President grew up in a family business, too.  We both know the sacrifices that are required to make a business work.  And more importantly, we know that when small business is strong, America is strong.  And this President is going to fight every day to make that a reality.  (Applause.)  President Trump wants to help you become stronger than ever before.  He made a promise to you and to the American people -- and as I like to say, this White House is in the promise-keeping business.  Just look at what we’ve done over the past month-and-a-half.  On day one, President Trump went straight to work rolling back reams of red tape.  He actually instructed every agency in the federal government to find two regulations to get rid of before issuing any new regulations on job creators in America.  (Applause.)  The President has taken decisive action to protect American jobs and American workers by taking measures to secure our border, to build a wall, and end illegal immigration once and for all.  (Applause.)  The President authorized the Keystone and Dakota pipelines at last creating thousands of American jobs and building on America’s energy infrastructure.  (Applause.)  Businesses -- and if you haven’t noticed already, businesses have been already reacting to President Trump’s vision, his “Buy American, Hire American” vision with optimism and investment around the country.  From coast to coast, literally since Election Day, companies have been announcing that they’re keeping jobs here.  They're creating new ones.  Last month alone, the economy added an amazing 235,000 jobs in the month of February.  This economy is coming back and coming back strong.  (Applause.)  And most importantly of all, the top priority the President gave us:  to work with members of Congress and make sure that the Obamacare nightmare is about to end.  (Applause.)  I’ll tell you, it’s amazing to think about -- virtually every promise of Obamacare has been broken.  We all remember the promises that they made back in 2010 when this was signed into law.  They told us the cost of health insurance would go down -- not true.  They told us that if you liked your doctors, you could keep ‘em -- not true.   They told us that if you liked your health plan, you could keep it -- not true.  Here are the heartbreaking facts.  Today, Americans are paying $3,000 more a year on average for health insurance than the day Obamacare was signed into law.  Last year alone, premiums spiked by 25 percent, and millions of Americans have lost their health insurance plans and lost their doctors. And in one-third of the nation’s counties, Americans only have one insurance company to choose from, which essentially means they have no choice at all.  The truth is the American people are struggling under Obamacare every day, and so are small businesses like those so well represented here.  You all know exactly what I’m talking about.  The truth is Kentucky is a textbook example of Obamacare’s failures.  Here in the Bluegrass State, premiums skyrocketed by an average of 24 percent last year, with some plans spiking by 47 percent. Nearly half of the state only has one health insurer to choose from.  And next year, Humana, headquartered right here in Louisville, is pulling out of Kentucky’s Obamacare exchange.  Today, one-third of the state is on Medicaid -- and as your Governor has said over and over again, it’s unsustainable.  And Medicaid here in Kentucky is threatening to bankrupt this state.  Folks, this just can’t continue, and I promise you it won’t.  (Applause.)   Since the day that Kentucky helped send President Trump to the White House, his top priority has been to repeal and replace Obamacare with something that actually works.  And we’ve already made incredible progress.  The House released its repeal-and-replace bill on Monday, and it already passed with unanimous support from two committees, one of which Congressman Guthrie sits on.  And, Congressman, I just want to thank you for your strong support to repeal and replace Obamacare.  (Applause.)  Now I know that not every politician in Kentucky supports our plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.  I know your former Governor Steve Beshear has been defending Obamacare all over America.   And he might even have something to say about my visit here today, and I welcome the debate.  I really do.   Steve Beshear is actually a friend of mine.  We worked together while I was Governor of Indiana to promote jobs and growth all across Kentuckiana.  And I’m awful proud of those Ohio River bridges, aren’t you?  (Applause.)  The great story about collaboration between our two states, the Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the Lewis and Clark Bridge I believe are going to support economic growth across this region for generations.  But your former Governor is wrong about Obamacare.  (Applause.)  Obamacare has failed the people of Kentucky.  It’s failed the people of America, and Obamacare must go.  (Applause.)     Now, the plan the President outlined in his joint address to the Congress is the plan we're working on.  We're going to repeal and replace Obamacare once and for all, and we're going to replace it with health-care reform that will improve the lives of every American and strengthen our economy. The truth is ordering every American to buy health insurance, whether they wanted it or not, was never the right solution for health care in this country.  So we're going to start -- we’re going to repeal the mandates and taxes and penalties of Obamacare.  (Applause.)  We’re going to end Obamacare’s individual and employer mandates.  We’re actually going to get rid of more than $500 billion in Obamacare’s tax increases.   (Applause.)  And we’re going to give Americans more choices.  We’ll expand health savings accounts.  We’ll give Americans a tax credit that will help people buy plans that they need at a price that they can afford. We’ll make sure that Americans with pre-existing conditions still have access to the coverage and the care that they need.  And to all the parents here, we’ll make sure you can keep your kids on your plan until they’re 26 years of age. And most significantly in my view, we’ll give states like Kentucky the freedom and flexibility with Medicaid to meet the needs of your most vulnerable in the way that works here in Kentucky.  (Applause.)  The bill moving through the Congress today is going to give Governor Bevin and, frankly, states all across the country the chance to reform Medicaid so it will better serve the underprivileged in your state, with better coverage, better health, and better outcomes just like the Governor said -- uniquely designed for the people of Kentucky -- a little like we did in the Hoosier State not too long ago. I’ll never forget being here for Governor Bevin’s inaugural address.  Anybody else remember that sunny day?  (Applause.)  As I was sitting and listening on, I remember hearing the Governor say that announced his intention to reform Medicaid using some of the same conservative principles that we used in Indiana.  He said then, that he was inspired by Indiana’s reforms, but he was pretty sure Kentucky could do better than Indiana.  And I’d like to see him try. (Laughter.)     In fact, President Trump truly does believe that giving states like Kentucky, like Indiana, like every state in the union, the resources and flexibility to improve their health-care programs and Medicaid is the American way to meet the needs of our most vulnerable, and we're going to make it happen.  (Applause.)  This competition between the states will give the American people better health-care choices.  And under President Trump’s leadership, we’re actually also going to finally allow Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines -- the way you buy life insurance, the way you buy car insurance.  (Applause.)  President Trump and I both know the way to lower the cost of health insurance is to create a national marketplace and give Americans more choices to buy the insurance they want, not the insurance that the government mandates them to have. But, folks, let me be clear, this is going to be a battle in Washington, D.C.  And for us to seize this opportunity to repeal and replace Obamacare once and for all, we need every Republican in Congress -- and we’re counting on Kentucky.  President Trump and I know -- at the end of the day, after a good and vigorous debate -- we know Kentucky will be there.  And we will repeal and replace Obamacare -- once and for all.  (Applause.)  And let me say one more thing, despite some of the fear-mongering by those on the liberal left, I want to assure the people of Kentucky who might be looking on this morning:  We’re going to work with the Congress and work with our agency at Health and Human Services, and we're going to have an orderly transition to a better health-care system that makes affordable, high-quality health insurance available for every American.  (Applause.)   In a word, we’re going to make the best health-care system in the world even better.  Now, while I came here to talk about Obamacare, it’s really just the start of what our administration is doing to make America great again. And let me give you a quick preview of that before I head back on that airplane.  First off, after we get this done, we’re going to cut taxes across the board for working families, small businesses, and family farms.  (Applause.)  We’re going to keep slashing through red tape and rein in unelected bureaucrats so they can’t cripple the economy from the comfort of their metal taxpayer-funded desks in Washington, D.C.  (Applause.)  We're going to do a little bit more like we did with those bridges, we're going to rebuild America so we have the best roads and bridges and highways and airports that America has ever had.  (Applause.)     But making America great again doesn’t stop just there.  This President has no higher priority I promise you than the safety and security of the American people, and he’s working every single day to protect our nation and our way of life. This is a President I can tell you appreciates the men and women of our law enforcement community, and he is standing every day with those who serve and protect our country in law enforcement.  (Applause.)  President Trump, as I mentioned, is also taking steps to strengthen our borders, to enforce our laws, and as the President said, we’re working through Immigrations and Customs Enforcement in close concert with law enforcement in every community, and we're taking in his words the “gang members, the drug dealers, and the criminals that threaten our communities and prey on our citizens” off the streets of Kentucky and off the streets of our country.  (Applause.)  Now, while we talk about those that serve in uniform, as the proud father of a United States Marine, let me tell you how grateful I am that in President Donald Trump we have a Commander-in-Chief who will rebuild our military, restore the arsenal of democracy, and give our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guard the resources and training they need to accomplish their mission and protect our nation.  (Applause.)  And by nominating Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States, President Trump kept his word to appoint a Justice to the Supreme Court who will keep faith with the Constitution, and he’ll be a justice who will uphold the God-given liberties that are enshrined in our Bill of Rights.  (Applause.)  My friends, let me tell you, President Trump is a man of his word, and he’s a man of action.  And I believe he will make America great again.  I think we've come to a pivotal moment in our nation’s history.  I truly do. In this moment, we need every freedom-loving American to join with us in this effort to make America great again. We need all of you to stand up, to speak out, to let your voice be heard.  There’s no time like the present. We need you to tell the world that we can do better.  We can do better on healthcare.  We can do better with a growing economy.  We can stand tall and strong in a world again.  We can restore this country, put it back to a path to a brighter future. And I know we're going to do this.  I truly do. One of my favorite verses in the Old Book is from the Book of Jeremiah.  It’s hung over the mantle of our home since before I was actually first elected to office now more than 16 years ago.  Now it hangs over the mantle in the Vice President’s Residence in Washington, D.C.  It reads:  “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope, and a future.” In November, the people of Kentucky voted to give America a President with the strength, and the courage, and the vision, to make America safe again.  You voted to give us a new leader who I believe will make America prosperous again and give us a fresh start on healthcare and economic growth.  And so I truly do believe with all my heart, that with your continued faith and support, and with God’s help, together we will make America great again.  Thank you very much for being here on this Saturday. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.  (Applause.)  END   11:41 A.M. EST
