Even as stories pour in of Americans facing steeply higher health insurance premiums and canceled coverage, team Obama just imposed new regulations that will make those problems worse. It’s almost like they can’t help themselves.

On Friday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced new regulations mandating health insurers cover mental and behavioral health to the same extent they cover physical health care.

A “mental health parity” mandate was passed by Congress in 2008, but Obama officials claim health insurers aren’t fully complying. (You’ll just have to overlook the irony of the Obama administration, which has postponed several provisions of Obamacare without any legal authority to do so, complaining that others aren’t complying with some law.)

The more likely explanation is the administration is desperately trying to redirect peoples’ attention from the Obamacare rollout that has become a non-stop string of stories about failed websites, higher premiums and canceled policies.

So while Obamacare is driving up the cost of a policy for many Americans by 50 percent to 100 percent, the new mental health rules will make coverage even more expensive—though it’s difficult to know by how much.

Evidence is already emerging that those who have signed up are older than average, and they will surely be sicker—because they are the uninsureds most motivated to get coverage.

Furthermore, the mental health mandate could mean that millions of additional health policies will be canceled because Obama just expanded what’s considered qualified coverage.

Obviously the federal government should have a universal automobile plan, coercing Americans to purchase union-made cars.

 

And over time,the price of those cars will double, with quality going down. :glare:

That's all you have to watch....see which news gets released late Friday, and pay attention to it, The Admin is trying to get it out while people ain't paying attention to the news.

I still doubt we'll get a clear, honest accounting.... They will try to cloak it in all the folks that signed up for free Medicaid...then they'll go on about hits on the Website, and application requests.
