Which 10 states will be most affected by Obamacare?

With the Obamacare exchanges set to open tomorrow, Glenn decided to amend his rule that forbids the use of President Obama’s name during the radio program. Beginning today, the Affordable Care Act will forever be referred to as ‘Obamacare’ as to ensure the President gets the proper credit for his signature legislation. Say so long to the $20 fine in any situation that involves talking about Obamacare.

On radio this morning, Glenn ran through a list put together by the Daily Caller of the 10 states that will be most adversely affected by the implementation of the law. In these 10 states, the President’s promise that if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan and if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor will simply not be true.

“First one, California. 58,000 [people] will lose their plans under Obamacare,” Glenn said. “The first bomb dropped in California with a mass exodus from the most populated state Obamacare exchange, Aetna, the country’s largest insurer left in July and was closely followed by United Health. Anthem Blue Cross just pulled out of California’s Obamacare exchange for small businesses as well.”

“Wow,” Pat said. “54% of Californians expect to lose their coverage. 54 percent.”

“Next, Missouri. Patients of the largest state hospital system, which spans 13 hospitals – including the St. Louis Children’s Hospital – will not be covered by the largest insurer on the Obamacare exchanges,” Glenn continued. “Anthem BlueCross BlueShield covers 79,000 patients in Missouri who now may seek subsidies on the ObamaCare exchanges but will not be able to see doctors in the anthem BlueCross BlueShield coverage system, including the Children’s Hospital.”

So now if you are a parent with Anthem BlueCross BlueShield in Missouri and your child needs care from the St. Louis Children’s Hospital, you will no longer have coverage. “But don’t worry. The rest of America can pay for it. Why have a private company do that,” Glenn asked. “Let’s just take it out of the taxpayers’ money. We’ll just do it because we got nothing but money, don’t we? I mean why take it out of the coffers of a private company when we can just take it away from other people through taxes. It’s so much simpler.”

In Connecticut, the third largest insurer in the U.S., Aetna, will no longer offer insurance on the state’s Obamacare exchange. Ironically, Aetna began in Connecticut in 1850.

“In Maryland, 13,000 individuals covered by Aetna, and its recently purchased Coventry Healthcare, will not be able to keep the insurance plan if they want subsidies on the exchanges,” Glenn said. “Aetna and Coventry cancelled plans to offer insurance in the exchange when state officials wouldn’t allow them to charge premiums high enough to cover their costs.”

Glenn explained that situations like these, where people are losing their coverage, is exactly what the President is looking for because it is the setup for his long-term dream of a single-payer system.

‘They want to enact this right away. This is why the President wants this to happen. He doesn’t want to get the elites into it and the other big companies and stuff. What he wants to do is put everybody who doesn’t have a choice, all the people at the lower end, into this so it will collapse the other insurance companies. If he can just collapse enough of the insurance companies, then there’s no way out,” Glenn explained. “A year from now when they say they want to fully enact, they will have to completely redo everything and you will have a single‑payer system. Because this next 12‑month period will collapse enough of these insurance companies to where the whole thing won’t work anymore and you will have destroyed the American health system. And so you will have to go back and now socially engineer it and you’ll get a Soviet-style healthcare system.”

In South Carolina, 28,000 people who were insured by the state’s second largest provider, Medical Mutual of Ohio, have lost their insurance after the company decided to leave the state entirely in July.

“Aetna pulled out of New York’s exchange in late August in an effort to keep their plans financially viable,” Glenn continued. “In New Jersey, 1.1 million Aetna customers are at risk in New Jersey, where the leading insurer will not be part of the exchange. 2,600 patients purchased individual plans with the company, but any looking to take advantage of subsidies on the exchange for an affordable employer‑based insurance will not be able to do it with Aetna.”

Furthermore, Iowa’s largest insured has decided not to offer plans in the exchange. It sells 86% of Iowa’s individual health insurance plans. A similar situation can be found in Wisconsin, where two of the three largest insurers in the state will not offer plans in the exchange. Meanwhile, only five insurance companies are participating in Georgia’s Obamacare exchange.

“So let’s just look. Let’s just look at these state,” Glenn said. “California: progressive. Missouri: I would say borderline. I mean that’s one that’s battling for its soul. Connecticut: progressive. Maryland: progressive. South Carolina: battling for its soul. New York: progressive. New Jersey: progressive. Iowa: progressive. Wisconsin: progressive. Georgia: battling for its soul. I mean what you don’t see on this list, you don’t see Texas. You don’t see Oklahoma. You don’t see Utah. You don’t see Wyoming. You don’t see Indiana. I mean hello. What do these states have in common? This is what’s coming.”

    This is just the beginning if this insidious bill is not scuttled.  It will get to the point where even the diehard liberals will be apoplectic.  That is, of course, unless they are not part of the special groups like the DC slugs and the union thugs that will be exempt. Very clever of this president, very clever indeed to have pulled off the biggest tax hike and scam in our country’s history, all the while placating the sheep while he’s shearing them.  This will get very interesting, very.

    Here is the game plan for the left, which many of us have understood for some time:

    Collapse of most health providers due to Obamacare
    Collapse of Obamacare 
    Institution of a one-payer system

    Anything the left or the Rino’s do, no matter how good it seems, always look at very carefully, as all too often what you think is there, is only part of the deal.

    Did you know that AHC exchanges were created with the input of private insurance companies?? Private Insurers will continue to gain new costumers under AHC, in fact, millions of them that today has no insurance coverage or limited insurance coverage. The exchanges are about choices. I would prefer Universal coverage, myself, but that will never happen in America not because the conservatives, but because our Private Insurers are so powerful and has so much cash involved that America will never have Universal coverage. I don’t undertand the fear by many Americans. AHC will allow your kids in college to stay under their parents coverage, people with pre-existing conditions will no longer be rejected, if you can’t afford a private coverage, you could still get some basic coverage, health care will focus on preventive medicine, not fixing when its probably too late and other good things are in this Law.
    Am still waiting for the conservatives to present a plan for the HC crisis in America.
    Where is it??? And, if their ideas are good too, lets make some changes and work together . . . we still have time to fix this thing . . . its not the end of the World!!

     You do understand that the whiteHouse is estimating the “bronze” plan at $328/person  So a family of 4 will pay almost $15K/year in premiums.  Since it’s the bronze, they will also pay roughly $10K/year in deductibles.  The only thing that they can hope for is that they can qualify for subsidies so that the rest of us eat our $25K costs AND some of this family’s costs.  And this is if the healthy young people they look to put on the exchange get there.  If these healthy young people don’t hit the exchanges, then these costs will go up.  Not to mention, since folks in Canada and the UK come here if they need anything other than generic drugs (happens so often that the UK is now fining people if they get out of the 18 month line for an MRI and come to the US and get one done same day) … now we will have the same rationed care that they do.  Fortunately, I believe that other countries (in the Caribbean a Latin America most likely) will create private hospitals.  So the folks who need treatment that rationed care won’t pay for … will still have an option.  There may be a period in between when our care is rationed and when these private hospitals open (or maybe some hospitals could open here and take no insurance … but I’m guessing gov’t would find that unsettling as they want to control everything) … so please save your money, because if you or a loved one needs serious care once this is all in place, you will need to travel.

    Conservatives have offered plans such as permitting insurance policy purchases across state lines, encouraging health savings accounts, making your policy your own not your employer’s…..  What drives up premiums, especially for those of us who carry high-deductible plans, is mandates from our state and federal governments.

  • Mary Larsen

    If you think that we will never get single payer in this country you are full of it, we will have it in 2-3 years!!  As far as private insurance having all the power, They think they do and they were also blinded by dollar signs with these so called millions of new patients. But reality is either the young and healthy will not sign up or they will get a lot of sick patients signing up and they will go broke paying these claims!!!  Then one by one these insurance companies will see they can not afford to keep insuring these people,and at first they will try to get out of the exchanges and the government will stop them and then eventually they will go bankrupt.  Then viola’ you have single payer!! with all its rationing of care.  If you remember the HMO’s of the 1980′s that is exactly what happen to them and there poor patients

  • Mark Ostroff

    Pachy, you are seriously ignoring the biggest problem that will make your dream of Obamacare Utopia never come to pass – the law of numbers. Pray tell me HOW can you add millions of new patients and provide BETTER care when you end up with FEWER doctors? Because that is exactly what is happening with Obamacare’s looming implementation. The so-called Affordable Care Act has done nothing to provide for more Supply while dramtically increasing Demand. Simple economics – PROVEN true time and again over CENTURIES of experience – say this is an impossible goal.

    Nice to dream, but even if I sing “I believe I can fly”, I’m going to have a serious problem if I use that dream to justify walking off the roof of a skyscrapper.

    You want contract doctors who never know you or anyone ELSE? 

    This is EXACTLY the model of the MILITARY – not the good OLD model but the newer model that allows MANY to fall through HUGE cracks.

    You need to know what an “EXCHANGE” is and what KINDS of doctors will be “available” and who WON’T be available when all the rich people have GOOD doctors and the rest in the EXCHANGES have death and misery with doctors who are little more than contract workers for the government.

    A “contract worker” – even a DOCTOR WILL never BE THE “BEST” at what they do or they would NOT be working a CONTRACT!!!!

    We need sliding scales NOT this.

    Anthem Blue Cross is our (my wife and my)  primary health insurance carrier.  I’m age 83 and she is 81.  Are we worried about how our health bills will have to be paid if and when Anthem
    Blue Cross pulls out of California?  Yes, we are.  What can we do about it?  We can pay for the bills that Medicare doesn’t pay – as long as our money lasts.  When all of our retirement money has been used up, then we can . . . depend on ObamaCare.  Who told me so?  Barack himself told me and millions of other American senior citizens in front of a whole bunch of television cameras, so I’m sure my wife and I can count on what he said because he has been so truthful on all other matters involving his administration.  What if he is lying this time?  Then I guess we can sell our belongings and our house and our cars and our children’s inheritance and shut down the payments to our grandchildren’s college funds.  What if that money runs out before we die of old age?  Well, we can depend on the other Obama administration programs to assist us in living out our lives which means that we can move in with our children or their children.  Am I worried?  No, Obama said his Health Care Program won’t let us down and his word is his bond.
    Jus’ saying ;-)

    It’s amazing to me that people are just now paying attention. The left complains when it personally affects them.  Well guess what….Millions of people are losing their health care insurance. I’ve had AWESOME insurance through the NASE (National Association of Self Insured) for the past 18 years.  Small business’s across the country were able to have group coverage through NASE.  Effective 1/1/14 that is over.  We have been forced into individual plans that more than double my monthly cost, more then triple my annual out-of-pocket cost for less than half the coverage I had before.  Nobody is talking about all the small business that have been affected.  In Washington State, we only have 4 companies that are participating in the exchange and that we are told may change.  We have no other options. All of you who voted for this guy again were not paying attention.  In Seattle, I have so many friends who are now losing their benefits and all I say to them now is “stop complaining…YOU VOTED for the guy”

  • exlogger

    Wife just came home for lunch, was at a city meeting most of the morning about there health care plan (self-ins). I’m retired and she is close to retirement. To keep her plan with me on it also, she is basely taking a 30% pay cut (that’s how much more it will cost in premiums). Deductibles went up 1000% copay on prescriptions up 500%  I’ve tried to stay off medicare but I guess that option is gone now. Thanks all you liberals out there    

  • greywolfrs

    Again, the Republicans have had a plan since this whole thing started, feel free to go to the GOP website and read it.

    Where exactly do you think it says in the Constitution that I am on the hook to pay for anyone’s healthcare, but my own? Why do you think it’s OK to use the government for forced charity? You and government can eat shit and stop playing Robin Hood with everyone’s else’s money. It’s time to take personal responsibility for yourself. Stop expecting your fellow citizens to pick up the slack.

    That is how this is fixed.

    If the Congress can vote themselves and their staff out of something, you know it can’t be good for anyone else.  I guarantee that if there is single payer, they will exempt themselves from that, too.

    I think every Senator and Representative should take the Affordable Care Act and READ EVERY WORD with their very own eyes, then rethink what they do and do not want to support. I think it’s criminal that it was passed when (I believe) not even one of them read the WHOLE thing—they would have advisors and assistants read portions of it and let them know what it said. I think that’s wrong with something this sweeping. About the only thing that I know of that I really support are that no pre-existing conditions make you uninsurable (but not even the penalty an insurance company can pay to get out of insuring someone. That kind of makes that null and void.) I think children should be able to be on the parents insurance as long as they are in school or until 26–except the government insurance won’t let you do that—they allow your child to get their own insurance through where you get yours (such as Tricare), but they are not included on your policy. Yet some other insurances allow you to put your child on your insurance just as a dependent child is. So far, those are the only beneficial things I’ve seen. The Affordable Care Act has made our insurance go up and our co-pays go up. It’s costing us more money. We pay more in taxes now. You feel like you are squeezed at both ends. I have family members that have NO way to afford insurance. I think they should scrap the whole thing and make small changes, similar to the ones put in place already (only make them better), and then slowly revamp things. This 2000 page document is ridiculous. Why they thought overhauling the whole thing at once was a good idea, I’ll never know. KEEP IT SIMPLE. And anyone “representing” our citizens should be REQUIRED to use the wonderful government healthcare they created. No exceptions.

    My feeling is this is why they are so HELLBENT on implementing this disaster we call Obamacare–because it is the ONLY way for them to destroy enough of the health care system to force people to accept a Socialist single-payer system, which is what Obama “really” wanted but could not get–hence he and his Democrat cronies crammed Obamacare down our throats–despite 74 PERCENT of the people being opposed to it before it was passed.

  • Anonymous

    The voters knew Obama would fundamentally transform America if elected and ObamaCare is part of the transformation.  Many voted for this, they want it, they voted for it TWICE.   They may not want it so badly when the entire system crashes and takes them (and us) along with it.

     Actually, the Republicans AND Conservatives had  LOT of good ideas they would have liked to see included in any “national health care plan”, but Obama and company made SURE they never saw the light of day by meeting in the middle of the night and on weekends behind closed doors in DEMOCRAT-ONLY meetings.  They would NOT allow the Republicans to get involved AT ALL in this “health care reform”–hence it was passed without a SINGLE Republican vote.

    What happens if very few people sign up for this ?  Is the IRS going to put millions of people in jail (or FEMA camps?)  The Dems have wanted this for over 60 years, it took a long time and much bribery but they finally got it.  This may be what finally pushes America over the edge and into the trash heap of history.

    This was all planned to happen…. this way Obamacare morphs into a single payer program where the government provides the means. Typical of socialized medicine. As long as the government provides, the government can also take away…..this is where it gets nasty. Some will get adequate care while others deemed expendable will not. This is where rationing takes place as well as euthanasia….especially for old folks.

    Karen, how amusing.  Congress (read: Democrats) rams through this health care bill which is signed into law but they DON’T want it for themselves.  Well, hell—they can take the health care for which they
    voted and, then, turn around and give themselves a raise in pay to cover all the associated costs around it.  Of course, that means the
    taxpayer will be paying double for them—their health care and their
    raise, if they vote for more pay for themselves.  But wouldn’t the tax
    payers, also, be paying for them if they chose private insurance?

    How is people going to pay there insurance/copays when they have to work part-time? People are having problems with the bills and everything else and there children’s needs. Now they have to pay a lot of money for the insurance. They will be working 2-3 part time jobs. I am afraid that a lot of people will be filling bankruptcies. obammy has and will turn OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY into a 4th class country. Maybe that will be good, because he can’t spend, spend a lot of money. He won’t even be able to walk out of the w/h.

    Amen to you. We have been trying to tell the people what they were going to get into with voting for obammy and obammycare. This isn’t paying for your insurance, you are paying taxes. That is what the Supreme Court has said. That is why your insurance is so high. You are paying a high degree of taxes and then insurance. Your copay and everything else will be very expensive. Then you will be working 29 hours a week or 2 – 3 more part time jobs just to make some since of your life. May God Bless the hard working tax paying citizens. These people won’t even get to have the help they need.

    Oh, look, another Progressive drone!  You take the chains if you want ‘em, boyo, but I will never willingly step into the shackles myself.  First of all, if it’s so bloody great, why aren’t Congress, the Big Idiot, unions, and the Idiot’s cronies hoppin’ on board for the ride?  Simple.  They plan to be the “overseers” on the plantation.  The current health program may not be perfect, but it’s a helluva lot better than what’s coming down the pike.  And btw, where’s the money gonna come from to insure these “kids” until they’re 26?  It’s gotta come from somewhere….oh, that’s right, their PARENTS will have to foot the bill!  I have a better idea.  Tell the kid to get off his lazy butt and get a job….ANY kind of a job!!!  When I was younger, I took whatever came along.  I did my time doing scut work.  I pulled myself up by my own bootstraps.  Most of the jobs I had didn’t offer insurance, but I had to learn to muddle along, anyway.  I lived. These punks these days are so friggin’ entitled it makes me want to puke!  Do an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay!  And if you say one word about minimum wage, I’ll hit you.  When I got my first job?  Minimum wage was $3.15 an hour!  Did I complain?  NO!!  I was just so happy I actually had a job, and was making my own money.
    Oh, and by the way, every plan conservatives suggested was swatted aside by the Progressives as if they were annoying plans, especially the one about allowing competition across state lines, because they know that they’ll work, and they don’t want that to happen.  They want this to become a one-payer system so he can have his Marxist country that he’s always wanted.  So before you throw down and say we haven’t offered up anything useful, shut your piehole and do something useful for a change, like gathering actual facts.

    I have a better idea, FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION. Nowhere in the Constitution does it ensure health care.

    restaurant not eating the food because they know it doesn’t taste all that good.  Why has Congress exempted themselves?  Could it be because THEY KNOW it isn’t all that good?  Sure looks like it.
    So, Neil says: ”EAT THE FOOD!”

    Do You know how frustrating it is when a Federal ALJ tells you they can neither confirm or deny you claims because they cannot get access to the records in question?  I was in the Army and did missions for the CIA in Central America (Totally Unofficially of Course)!

    How sick. As the daughter of a Vietnam vet, and the sister of a Gulf War I vet, I understand completely how much our soldies and sailors sacrifice for us, only to come home to be spit upon by the very country that should be taking care of its wounded warriors. When my dad came home, there was NOTHING to help him, and he still suffers to this day, and refuses to discuss it. It is UNREAL that our wounded warriors are still being treated in such a shameful fashion. Whenever I see our warriors in uniform, or our vets, I make it a point to thank them personally for their service, and to ask if I may hug them. I’ve never been refused yet! I think they appreciate knowing SOMEONE is grateful for what they sacrificed. This Delta-Bravo in the WH certainly doesn’t. I pray things will work out for you, sir. And I salute you.

     I don not know how many times US Citizens, even fairly well educated ones, misunderstand or misrepresent the Canadian Health system NOTHING IS FREE HERE FOR GODS sake. Eye care just in the last 2 weeks I have had to pay over a thousand dollars for examinations, one cheap frame and 2 lenses, my wife needs surgery on ONE tooth the estimate is TWO thousand dollars, I pay for any prescription, physio, etc, etc . It aint FREE up here quit comparing the two countries OK ! Thanks  man oh man GEE get rid of the ACA. it will kill you!.

  • tobias smit

    Hi Snow been following your comments for a while :),
    The one payer system is exactly what it will be, just like up here in Canada every dollar  will come out of YOUR pocket ( see my comment earlier). What that means if you cannot pay you will not be able to use the ACA. and then the IRS will step in, so welcome to the USSR no wonder PUTIN is laughing his head off. BTW I am not calling  Canada the USSR just yet, we still have some really decent safety nets but unless you know how to apply for help of any kind the bureaucrats just shake their “collective” heads.

    Follow the money….it was the insurance companies who not only lobbied for national health care, but actually WROTE THE ACA BILL. Wellpoint Insurance, a HUGE insurance conglomerate, strong-armed the Dems and some Repubs to get this law on the books. Why? Because they are the ones who will profit. This legislation was NEVER about helping the American people; it was all about money for the ins. Companies..plus kickbacks to the legislators…just follow the money. Now, Obama and Reid CAN’T negotiate any part of the bill…because the insurance companies have them by the throat. Look at WellPoint’s website, then go to their published PAC, and you will see that they were making donations to the Republican congressional members and candidates. Between 2010 and 2011, John Biehner received $10, 000 from them, Rand Paul received his share, as did Eric Canter, Paul Ryan, and many others. If the right person would dig into this and exposee the depth of the deceit, the explosion would make Watergate look like a tea party.

    One would think it would be a simple matter to simply affirm that said injuries were sustained during active service – without disclosing any confidential information.

    It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out how to do that.

    Most of this information is incorrect. My premiums are quite low, less than what I pay for my employer, and many include dental. I live in NC.

    i just met with the group that does our health care, Blue cross Blue shield, our insurance meets the requirments, because unlikeother health insurance companies we did NOT have underperformance coverage, which means we were NOT getting ripped off, and my health insurance went down NOT up, hey 20 dollars a month more in my pocket is 20 dollars more in my pocket, cant believe that so many peoplehad insuraance they thought was good and been paying this whole time for SUBSTANDARD health coverage. Hope it works out for alot of other people this way also…. HAPPY Holy days everyone!!!!!

  • Ross Magerus

    Healthcare reform is needed for our economy to recover.
    Most nations pay half what we pay for healthcare, and get better coverage.
    Do you know that Americans over 65 have the longest life expectancy on earth? They are covered by medicare.
    That is fact.

  • Lainer

    This was all planned to eliminate the health care providing for all the baby boomers who have now entered into more health care costs due to their age. It’s a way out of those costs and now forces the American people to foot the bill through taxes instead of those private insurance businesses. It was all well-planned. the baby boomers are the biggest population and the most costly. So now Americans will foot the bill for that along with not being able to have their social security or Medicare thanks to the government robbing that as well.

    You are on the soy lent green list. I will probably be right next to you.

  • Lainer

    The USA easily denies coverage for anyone with psychological problems. They don’t care that you served. That’s a common theme over the years. It’s despicable.

  • Lainer

    I totally agree with you. The way this country treats its veterans and elderly is nothing short of a criminal act and worthy of an immediate prison sentence and restitution in the form of monies due to those that suffered plus interest!

    The answer that everyone gives is that congress is covered under an existing plan. Well, many of those existing plans that the American people are covered under are disappearing. Will congress still be covered under their existing plan then? Oh, I bet they will be. Nice strategy, government.

  • Lainer

    REVOLUTION! That’s the only answer. Until we rise and fight against this tyrannical government, nothing will change.

  • Lainer

    I honestly believe that this would happen with either nominee. It’s an agenda they both want pushed through to get more money via taxing the American public. So, if Romney was in office, it would still be happening. Both are crooks. Both swallowed the Kool-aid and follow like little puppets what congress dictates.
