WE NEED TO TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY! Tell the Legislators that this is not acceptable.
H 464 Gov Otter’s Insurance Company Bail Out plans to move 2,000 chronically ill people from private insurance to Medicaid.
How does this save the government money???
See if you can follow the logic…when they move the chronically ill from private insurance to Medicaid it will cut down on the subsidies. How will they move all of these people to Medicaid? They will just refuse to renew the person’s subsidy if they don’t move to Medicaid.
I’ve been very ill myself and I know that I would have had to move to Medicaid if my subsidy had been taken from me.
Would I have received the same care on Medicaid? I would not have. I was able to choose the best doctors and go to the Mayo Clinic which would not have happened for me on Medicaid. I am appalled that HB 464 is taking the most vulnerable people and cajoling them onto Medicaid.
Please see the attached list of illnesses that will be targeted for this soft coercion away from private insurance. Are you one of the 2,000 that would be targeted?
We need you to explain to the committee tomorrow how this would effect you. How will Medicaid know about your illness? THE GOVERNMENT SAYS THAT THEY ARE WITHIN HIPAA GUIDELINES TO KNOW WHAT ILLNESS YOU HAVE.
We need to take action against this bill. There is an alternative to this Medicaid expanding insurance company bailout.
If you can't testify in person PLEASE write email your legislators immediately tell them to VOTE NO on H 464!
