So, as the Affordable Care Act progresses we look at the enrollees.
Most of the enrollees are Medicaid/Medical Assistance program members.
This only “takes” from the funded system.
Where is the money going to come from?
Are the youth and the healthy going to sign up, pay the big premiums and support the program?
From the looks of it their may be a real problem to sustain the system.
So, looking at the options in the bill, the option is to raise taxes. The authors of the bill will not allow the program to fail!
It is a shame that the program and enrollment and design has suffered such poor planning.
Strategically there was good intention in the plan, but a better design would have avoided all of the problems.
Suggestions for corrections and a different strategic plan?
