CAHC’s President, Joel White, was interviewed by the Heartland Daily News about the Biden administration’s desire to limit short-term, limited-duration insurance (STLDI) to four months with no option to renew.
Deductibles are prohibitively high under Obamacare, says Joel White, president of the Council for Affordable Health Coverage.
“The typical deductible on an Obamacare ‘silver’ plan, on top of what the consumer is already paying in premiums, is $4,753, while the average deductible on a high-deductible employer plan linked to a health savings account (HSA) is about half that,” said White.
“Congress has pursued policies to weaken employer coverage while encouraging people to join Obamacare,” said White. “Pursuing an agenda to put more people in a program where they pay more and get less access to doctors and drugs isn’t compassionate; it’s fundamentally anti-consumer and anti-patient.”
