Obamacare is overcharging single-parent mothers with the “Family Glitch.” Iowa City school teachers have to pay $725 a month to add their child to the school’s Blue Cross insurance. If the mother goes to the Obamacare Exchange they are disqualified for tax credits and must purchase with after-tax dollars making it more expensive. If Biden strips these over-priced children from Blue Cross they will lose huge chunks of their profits and will be forced to raise the prices for the employer-based plans. Of course, Trump’s Short-Term-Medical (STM) is less than $150 with a broad PPO network that includes the Mayo Clinic. The media won’t report because they love Obamacare. I got an article in the Tampa Tribune about STM and the Family Glitch https://www.tampabay.com/opinion/letters/tuesdays-letters-short-term-medical-insurance-option-will-soon-disappear/2313076/#comments
I read that the insolvency date for Medicare was push back slightly because Covid was more likely to kill the sickest seniors, leaving behind a slightly healthier risk pool.
