    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) talk about who can and cannot be health insurance exchange "navigators" in a new batch of proposed regulations. In the proposed regulations, "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Exchange Functions: Standards for Navigators and Non-Navigator Assistance Personnel" (CMS-9955-P) (RIN 0938-AR75), CMS officials also talk about the rules that will govern "non-navigator consumer assistance programs," such as "in-person assister" programs. Officials at CMS -- an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services -- said HHS eventually might require every Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) exchange to set up...

    ObamaCare to Create 100,000s of Jobs in the Field of Explaining ObamaCarePosted By Daniel Greenfield On April 4, 2013 @ 9:08 pm In The Point | 12 Comments Democrats always said that ObamaCare would create a lot of jobs and while currently it’s hard at work destroying jobs, especially at the working class level, like most medical centralization boondoggles, ObamaCare will create a lot of jobs in the field of explaining what it is and how to survive it. Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as “navigators” to help Americans choose Obamacare options...

    Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as "navigators" to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 will be paid up to $48 an hour, more than six times the federal minimum wage of $7.25, according to new regulations issued Wednesday. The 63-page rule covering navigators, drawn up by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, also said the government will provide free translators for those not fluent in English -- no matter what their native language is. It is still not clear how many navigators will be required. California, however, provides a...

    The 61-page online Obamacare draft application for health care includes asking if the applicant wants to register to vote, raising the specter that pro-Obama groups being tapped to help Americans sign up for the program will also steer them to register with the Democratic Party. On page 59, after numerous questions about the applicant's identity and qualification for Obamacare, comes the question: "Would you like to register to vote?" The placement of the question could lead some to believe they have to register to vote to get health care. In the introduction of the document, the Centers for Medicare &...

    Last week I posted a copy of the draft application for Obamacare benefits, which clocks in at a hefty 21 pages. Consumer advocates and Wonkblog commenters had similar questions: Why on earth would the federal government create such a complex form to obtain a public benefit? For me, at least, the flowchart below provides a bit of an answer. It comes from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, which represents the regulators who oversee each states insurance market. It is an attempt to draw up the most basic, simple questions to determine eligibility for insurance subsidies or Medicaid. It can...
