Userís Guide to Obamacare
Fox Business ^ | 9-30-2013 | Gerri Willis

Posted on 09/30/2013 10:54:46 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Tune in all this week for our User's Guide to Obamacare special coverage starting 6pmET. The new Obamacare health insurance exchanges open Tuesday, Oct. 1. This is the first time that individuals will be able to sign up for health insurance offered under the controversial Affordable Care Act. Opening of the exchanges marks the starting gun for the law's implementation, which is the biggest overhaul of the nation's health care system since Medicare in 1966. The devil will definitely be in the details -- and there are a lot of them -- and none has been more controversial than the individual mandate.

Tonight on The Willis Report on the Fox Business Network we'll be talking about the mandate and what it means to you. The government is requiring individuals to have health care coverage. And the requirement extends to you and everyone in your household, including spouses and dependents. The coverage can be issued by your employer, through federal programs like Medicare, Medicaid, CHIPS and the Veterans Administration, or it can be purchased through private networks. Failing those options, individuals are required to buy coverage through the Obamacare exchanges opening Oct. 1. Individuals must be able to prove coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2014.

Look what I found....!!!

"We said everybody must prove coverage, but there are some exceptions to that rule. If you can't afford coverage because premiums cost more than 8 percent of your household income, you don't have to have coverage. Also, if you don't make enough money to file a tax return, you are also exempt. If you live in one of the many states which opted not to expand Medicaid under Obamacare, you also don't have to participate. Other exemptions exist, but they are fairly narrow, usually for people already receiving health benefits from the government, such as Native Americans.

Fox should change the title to “citizen’s guide” not “user’s guide” since participation for regular unexempted people is absolutely mandatory. That little tweak may awake some fence-sitters that peruse the foxbiz website to the soviet-style dictate ocare really is.

User’s Guide Tip #1: Do not contract any condition that requires, you know, actual medical attention. Especially if you’re old (definition of which will vary with condition and political persuasion).

Is Obamacare restricted to citizens only; or, will “undocumented immigrants” also be eligible for subsidized coverage? I’m assuming that “documented immigrants”, with a green card, will qualify.

” If you live in one of the many states which opted not to expand Medicaid under Obamacare, you also don’t have to participate.”

So if you live in a state with a RINO governor ( like MI) that rammed through medicaid expansion you are screwed!

I sure wish Texas wasn’t so freaking HOT!

I read the other day somewhere that there was a hidden clause in owebamacare that automatically granted the right to vote to anyone in the owebamacare exchanges.

“Some conservative legal scholars have argued that since the exchanges operate as a marketplace for private insurance, they don’t fall under the Motor Voter law’s definition of social service providers, and therefore shouldn’t be linked to voting. But the exchanges also provide government subsidies, and as recently as April, HHS made it clear that all health care exchanges would need to provide voter registration services.”
