FEDERAL HEALTH CARE REFORM
  • Background

18
Federal Health Care Reform The Basics
  • Projected to cover 32 million
  • Major approaches to coverage include
  • Individual mandate
  • State-based Insurance Exchanges for individuals
    and small businesses
  • Expansion of Medicaid to 133 FPL (14,404 for an
    individual and 29,327 for a family of four)
  • Require large employers to offer coverage to
    employees
  • Provide tax credits and premium credits for
    low-income individuals and families.

19
However
  • Approximately 24 million people will remain
    uninsured in 2014, including an estimated 400,000
    in Colorado
  • Primarily, they are
  • Undocumented immigrants
  • Low income workers who can demonstrate that
    insurance coverage is unaffordable, even with
    subsidies

20
How concerned are you about the remaining
uninsured?
  1. Not much
  2. Some
  3. A lot

21
Medicare Drug Benefit
  • In 2010, a 250 rebate will be available to those
    Medicare Part D participants who reach the donut
    hole.
  • Approximately 100,000 seniors in Colorado could
    see significant reductions in the costs of their
    brand-name drugs in the Medicare Part D program.

22
Changes to Private Health Insurance
  • Effective 6 months following enactment
  • Insurers are prohibited from denying health
    insurance due to a pre-existing condition for
    children under age 18.
  • Individual and group policies must provide
    coverage for dependent children up to age 26.
  • Prohibit lifetime limits on the dollar value of
    coverage
  • Prohibit insurers from rescinding coverage except
    in cases of fraud.

23
Changes to Private Health Insurance, cont.
  • Beginning in 2014
  • Insurers are prohibited from denying health
    insurance due to a pre-existing condition for
    adults.
  • Prohibit individual and group health plans from
    placing annual limits on the dollar value of
    coverage.
  • New policies must comply with one of the four
    federally designated benefit categories.

24
New for Small Businesses
  • Small businesses will receive a 50 tax credit to
    help pay for coverage
  • Tax-exempt employers (e.g. nonprofits) will
    receive a 35 credit.
  • Eligibility
  • 25 full time employees or fewer
  • average wages under 50,000
  • already providing qualified health insurance to
    their employees and paying for at least half
  • This would help an estimated 68,000 small
    businesses in Colorado.

25
Do you know of any Colorado small businesses that
will benefit from this tax credit?
  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Not sure

26
In general, do you think that health care reform
is good for small business?
  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Mixed bag
  4. Not sure

27
State Role
  • States will create Exchanges where individuals
    and small business can purchase coverage.
  • Individuals and families whose household income
    falls between 133 and 400 FPL will be eligible
    for subsidies in the exchange.
  • 400 of poverty is 43,120 for an individual and
    88,200 for a family of four

28
State Role, cont.
  • Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (COOP)
    programs
  • CO-OPs are non-profit, member-run health
    insurance companies.
  • CO-OPs must be
  • governed by members
  • profits must be used to lower premiums, improve
    benefits or improve the quality of care for
    members

29
Do you think CO-OPS will catch on in Colorado?
  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Not sure

30
Other Coverage Options Multi-Share Programs
(MSPs)
  • An MSP is a basic plan to provide coverage to
    low-income workers. Usually the employer pays
    part, the employee pays part, and another part is
    paid by an outside funder.
  • Under the version of the bill that passed
    (Senate) MSPs would not satisfy the individual
    mandate requirement
  • Subsidies for individuals and families cannot be
    used for MSPs. However, small businesses
    participating that meet the criteria for the tax
    credits available starting in 2010 will be
    eligible to receive those credits.

31
MSPs in Colorado
  • Colorado has two MSPs
  • Health Access Pueblo
  • CarePoint in the San Luis Valley.

32
Do you think that MSPs should continue in
Colorado to serve low-income workers even after
2014?
  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Not sure

33
Interaction with Colorado Law
34
Federal Health Care Reform and Colorados HB
1293-09
  • Last year the legislature passed the Colorado
    Healthcare Affordability Act of 2009, which
    establishes a hospital fee that will be matched
    by federal funds in order to provide access to
    health insurance for hundreds of thousands of
    Coloradans

35
WHAT DOES THE LEGISLATION MEAN FOR COVERAGE IN
COLORADO? MEDICAID EXPANSION
  • Beginning in May 2010, in Colorado Medicaid
    eligibility for parents of dependent children
    will increase from 60 FPL to 100 FPL, making
    coverage available to an additional 27,618
    people.
  • In 2012 an additional 119,104 more adults in
    Colorado will be eligible for Medicaid.
  • In 2014, federal expansion will provide access to
    Medicaid to another 52,676 adults in Colorado
    between 101 and 133 FPL.
  • An estimated 63,851 adults at or below 133 FPL
    will remain uninsured because they lack legal
    immigration documentation.

36
How does 1293 interact with Federal Reform?
  • Thousands of Coloradans will be covered sooner
  • Colorado will be ahead of many others states in
    2014 because 1293 allows us to reduce the number
    of uninsured over time.
  • Those states that have higher uninsured rates
    will have rapidly increasing spending in 2014

37
Impacts and Opportunities for Colorado Communities
38
HOW WILL REFORM AFFECT ACCESS TO CARE?
  • Increase the number of health care providers,
    including doctors, nurses, and dentists,
    particularly in rural and other underserved
    areas.
  • Target rural populations and providers through
    rural physician training grants to help rural
    communities with the grow-your-own approach.
  • Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) will be
    expanded to increase access to health care for
    medically underserved populations, in particular
    by adding primary care residencies to
    community-based settings.

39
HOW WILL OUR COMMUNITIES BENEFIT FROM HEALTH CARE
REFORM LEGISLATION?
  • New grants, demonstration projects, and programs
    for communities to expand and improve the
    delivery of care and to develop best practices
    for future implementation.
  • The CDC will fund community preventive health
    activities to reduce chronic disease rates,
    prevent the development of secondary conditions,
    and address health disparities.
  • Other new programs and funding opportunities will
    address workforce shortages, develop and
    establish new models of care delivery, and
    increase access to quality health care.
