ObamaCare Catastrophic Premiums Rising 18% In 2015

Premiums for ObamaCare's cheapest catastrophic plan will jump an average 18% in 2015 in 34 large markets, one in each state exchange using Healthcare.gov for a second year. This finding, along with a closer look at the level of premiums, suggests that a key feature of ObamaCare -- a cheap catastrophic option for adults under age 30 and a fallback option for those who are ineligible for subsidies -- is not functioning well in much of

ObamaCare amnesty: No need to pay December premiums?

Official ObamaCare enrollment data got a thorough dental cleaning on Thursday. Apparently, no one had flossed the data in some time, because a chunk of nearly 400,000 stowaways came flying out and slimed the Obama administration's credibility. Yuck!

Republican House investigators discovered, and Bloomberg News reported, that the latest numbers on people with health coverage via ObamaCare's federal- and state-operated exchanges were inflated by the addition of 380,000 people who had signed up for dental plans. The Department of Health and Human Services later acknowledged the error, even expressing shock and dismay.

Whether the error was the result of carelessness or, rather, a deliberate effort to keep the enrollment number levitating above the 7 million goal set in the fall of 2013, the revelation didn't come as a great surprise to IBD. We've been reporting that the paid enrollment data reported separately by a number of states cast doubt on the accuracy of HHS data.

Now we've learned the truth -- 6.7 million people were paid up as of mid-October, about 16% less than the 8 million sign-ups that the administration celebrated back in the spring. Now, everyone will start to focus on how many people will sign up during the second enrollment period, which just launched. But there's another, more immediate question that is also quite interesting: How many people will bother to pay their premiums in December?

It's unclear that this number will ever be reported, but there is good reason to suspect that people will take advantage of ObamaCare's rules to skip their final payment of the year without consequence.

Under ObamaCare's 90-day grace period, insurers must pay all claims for an enrollee for the first month after a payment due date is missed. For policyholders who aren't close to meeting their deductible, there is no risk in not paying their December bill and waiting to see if they have a costly medical emergency during the month.

The other factor that could lead people to take a free ride during the last month of the year is that many of the low-cost policies on various state exchanges have seen significant price hikes, while other competitors have taken over as the lowest-cost provider. As a result, people shopping for bargains may consider switching plans and leaving their old provider in the lurch for December.

Insurers have been worried about this. In a rate filing in Connecticut, for example, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield said that it expected 15% of enrollees to skip out on one month's payment. WellPoint (WLP)-owned Anthem asked for a 0.38 percentage point premium hike as a result, but the state insurance department rejected the request.

If people do skip out on their plans in big numbers next month, premiums will be higher as a result in 2016.

Obama Lays Down Immigration Gauntlet

President Obama's looming executive orders on immigration will provide legal protections for as many as 5 million illegal immigrants but will also fuel questions over his executive power like tinder in a firestorm. An executive order will last only until Obama's presidency ends in January 2017, but the controversy is already hot, with conservatives denouncing him for bypassing Congress and resentment that could further stall
