Why Florida insurance bills are about to get cheaper

10:12 pm in General by The Broker

dollar signGood news for 2015: A state storm fund has paid off debts 18 months early so regulators today ended a 1.3 percent assessment that appears on insurance bills statewide.

That means policies renewing on or after Jan. 1 just got 1.3 percent cheaper.

The Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund emergency assessment began at 1 percent in 2007 and was increased to 1.3 percent in 2011. The $2.9 billion collected was used to pay claims from the series of eight hurricanes that hit Florida in 2004 and 2005.

Escalating Prescription Costs Worrying Patients and Payers

A new drug called Sovaldi has an 80 percent cure rate for certain types of Hepatitis C infection when taken in combination with a drug called ribavirin. That’s good news for the approximately 3.2 million Americans with chronic Hepatitis C. The bad news is the drug costs $1,000 per pill, or about $84,000 for a course of treatment.

Although Sovaldi actually cures Hepatitis C ─ “potentially preventing those infected from developing cirrhosis or cancer of the liver,” insurers are balking at its price. In a blog post, America’s Health Plans (AHIP), a health insurer trade group, said, “Sovaldi has shown tremendous results…Unfortunately, the drug’s maker has priced it at an astronomical level that is not sustainable for consumers, innovation or society.”

How Your Health Insurance Company Can Still Screw You, Despite Obamacare

10:12 pm in General by The Broker

The Affordable Care Act as a brand new law can’t be expected to have anticipated every problem, but so far, as long as it isn’t hampered by republican local obstruction, it has been doing a pretty good job of doing what it was designed to do. Having said that, I still believe that we should have stuck to our guns and fought much harder for a single payer system; its internal costs would be much lower, Medicare already has a good track record, and we the people would be the sole investors and performance trackers of a Medicare For All insurance plan. Health Insurance companies already in place would have taken up the slack of insuring all of us for the remaining twenty percent of health costs that Medicare For All wouldn’t cover so it wouldn’t be as if we all threw the Health Insurance companies out of business. It might be that the days of earning record profits would be over and is that necessarily such a bad thing? I can’t imagine that any health insurance employee can feel that good about what they do when they are denying coverage or payment to people who see their insurance as necessary to not going bankrupt or saving someone’s health from deteriorating, it cannot be a good feeling at the end of a work day.
