Obamacare repeal appears to be dead. Again. Maybe. For the time being
anyway. But in the meantime, the Trump administration is still moving
forward with its backup plan to simply sabotage the laws exchanges by
making sure the fewest possible people sign up for coverage.
Their latest move? Simply shutting down healthcare.gov on days when people
are likely to shop for health coverage. Phil Galewitz of Kaiser Health
News has tweeted that Department of Health and Human Services is planning
to close the site from 12 a.m. to 12 p.m. on most of the upcoming Sundays
during open enrollment, which is only supposed to last a brief 45 days
this year, thanks to a rule the administration released in April.
As Slavitts tweet points out, this is only the latest move by the
administration to try and prevent Americans from signing up for health
insurance on Obamacares exchanges, either by curtailing outreach or making
the markets to harder to access. Last month, news broke that the
Department of Health and Human Services would cut Obamacares ad budget by
90 percent, while slashing spending on navigators who help people sign up
for insurance by 40 percent. Any one of these moves might not prove
crippling to the law. But collectively, you can see how they might begin
to add up.
Anyway, welcome to 2017, in which we have an executive branch fighting
tooth and nail to make it harder for Americans to buy the health insurance
to which theyre legally entitled.
