Corpus Christi Health Insurance Features Medicaid For Low Income After Change

Rick Thornton, a health insurance agent in Corpus Christi, says decision, which only applies to the Medicaid expansion population that gained coverage under the ACA, will face significant hurdles.

Corpus Christi, United States - February 15, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Corpus Christi Health Insurance was given new guidelines last month that will allow states to accept a limited amount of money from the government to cover poor people in exchange for flexibility in spending the funds. The move comes directly from the President and is being viewed as a prime example of concerted efforts aimed at not only undermining the Affordable Care Act but leading to its eventual demise.

The administration is referring to the program as “Healthy Adult Opportunity,” and it is a sweeping change from the current model of health insurance in Corpus Christi. Currently, the government matches a majority of what states pay for Medicaid annually. The latest change calls to give states a specific amount of money each year instead. The plan applies only to the Medicaid expansion population that gained coverage under the ACA, and the goal is to limit spending on Medicaid, which pays for healthcare for the poor and others who are vulnerable. States would also be allowed to ask patients to try cheaper versions of prescription drugs before more expensive versions. According to the Washington Examiner, states that participate in the program will need to regularly report back to the federal government to show how beneficiaries are doing. They would not be allowed to limit Medicaid enrollment but would have to stick to the Obamacare income rules.

Rick Thornton, a Corpus Christi health insurance agent was quick to echo what everyone is already saying, which is that this new program will face significant hurdles and possible legal action in the ongoing healthcare debate. Critics suggest that the current administration is trying to slash American healthcare, and in so doing, states may incur hidden costs. States that wish to participate would need to apply and go through an approval process with the federal government.

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Feb 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Feb 21, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Feb 21, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Feb 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Feb 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
