The popular parts of the law are not going to be repealed and the health insurance industry better get used to it.
If not, single payer health care will come to this country.
Correction.... AARP worried
Considering what my premiums have done since Soetorocare was passed, I can see why the insurers are happy.

Greed IS Good but stewardship is needed to keep the wealth.
It would please me no end to see those that were seeking the gravy train at our expense find the train running in the opposite direction.
This is a new kind of “tax” where instead of giving the money to government for them to hand it over to corporate welfare, we are forced to just hand it over to them ourselves. Hey, skipping the middle man!
The big consultant IT companies are already at work building health care exchanges. In fact anyone looking for consulting jobs in the past year will notice most of the jobs are in health care. I would guess the likes of IBM/Xerox/Deloitte/Accenture, etc are contributing to Obama.
There are so many willing pArticipants in our downfall.
Pray for our country.
Let’s end these word games. United Health Care and Blue Cross are NOT insurance companies; they are administrators that function as Federal government proxies. The coverage rules, prices and profits margins for the exchanges are soon to be set by HHS under 0-care. The current CEOs and high level executives are perfectly fine with this situation because they will rake in enough money before the companies are fully nationalized.
This is only a transitory phase. Eventually, the Federal government will squeeze out the profits, the companies will fail, and the government will take them over completely.
Stupid article. Ok maybe insurance companies would bring in ‘some’ new individual members BUT many would be higher risk meaning people that cost insurers $. Also since many employers will stop offering coverage to their employees insurers will be losing ‘group’ business. Obamacare will be crippling to insurers. Might not be immediate but will be imminent.
They are worried because the reason given for recent premium increases is that “health care mandates under Obamacare”. So if Obamacare is repealed, the expectation would be for those premium increases to be rolled back.
It won’t happen, and people will be pissed and the heavy hand of government will come down on them - this time not so much to their advantage.
It’s long past time to get both insurance companies and government out of healthcare.
