In my inbox this morning was an advertisement from Organizing for Action with this sticker.  This is a play on the Yellow Gadsen Flag that dates from the revolutionary war and has become a favorite at Tea Party rallies and on the bumpers of those less appreciative of government overreach.  The coiled rattlesnake has been replaced by a coiled stethescope.  The message has been altered from "Don't Tread On Me" to "Don't Tread On My Obamacare."  Clever to be sure.

We were greeted with the "surprise" news that the employer mandate has been delayed FOR SOME EMPLOYERS once again.  I place the word "surprise" in quotes not because we knew it was coming, but because at this point being "surprised" by the sudden changes in Obamacare is like Vizzini repeatedly declaring "INCONCEIVABLE!" in The Princess Bride.

This just in - another Obamacare mandate delayed!

The Obama administration announced today that employers with between 50 and 99 full-time workers will not have to comply with the Affordable Care Act's requirement for health insurance until 2016.  In addition, those companies with 100 workers or more can avoid penalties if they offer coverage to at least 70% of their full-time employees.  Originally, employers with 50 full-time workers or more had to offer coverage or pay a penalty of $2,000 per employee starting in 2014.  

 

Stand by for more details and analysis here on the Adams Insurance Service blog.

Employers will see around a 5% rate increase with their health insurance in the new year!  What?  Is that a premium change?  Your premium will be unchanged until your next renewal.  But, this new calendar year will bring new fees and taxes that are being shifter from carriers to employers and charged to employers directly.  Thanks Obamacare!

Here is the latest ad hoc measure to stem the tide of bad news from the individual health insurance market.  Health and Human Services announced  yesterday that consumers with cancelled plans (ala Obamacare's new rules and regulations) would be eligible for a hardship waiver for 2014 and would be exempt from the individual mandate.

This was the the President's insightful comment in his healthcare.gov mea culpa.  Well, the President's journey of discovery continues.  Now, they have discovered that people want to know what kind of deductible they are going to have BEFORE they buy the plan.

1.  They are all top medical facilities in the United States.  2. People come from all over the world to be treated by their doctors.  3. All three are excluded from all but a handful of health plans offered on healthcare.gov.  Good luck determining which plan gives you coverage.  From the Financial Times:
