Corpus Christi Health Insurance Features Medicaid For Low Income After Change

Rick Thornton, a health insurance agent in Corpus Christi, says decision, which only applies to the Medicaid expansion population that gained coverage under the ACA, will face significant hurdles.

Corpus Christi, United States - February 15, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Corpus Christi Health Insurance was given new guidelines last month that will allow states to accept a limited amount of money from the government to cover poor people in exchange for flexibility in spending the funds. The move comes directly from the President and is being viewed as a prime example of concerted efforts aimed at not only undermining the Affordable Care Act but leading to its eventual demise.

The administration is referring to the program as “Healthy Adult Opportunity,” and it is a sweeping change from the current model of health insurance in Corpus Christi. Currently, the government matches a majority of what states pay for Medicaid annually. The latest change calls to give states a specific amount of money each year instead. The plan applies only to the Medicaid expansion population that gained coverage under the ACA, and the goal is to limit spending on Medicaid, which pays for healthcare for the poor and others who are vulnerable. States would also be allowed to ask patients to try cheaper versions of prescription drugs before more expensive versions. According to the Washington Examiner, states that participate in the program will need to regularly report back to the federal government to show how beneficiaries are doing. They would not be allowed to limit Medicaid enrollment but would have to stick to the Obamacare income rules.

Rick Thornton, a Corpus Christi health insurance agent was quick to echo what everyone is already saying, which is that this new program will face significant hurdles and possible legal action in the ongoing healthcare debate. Critics suggest that the current administration is trying to slash American healthcare, and in so doing, states may incur hidden costs. States that wish to participate would need to apply and go through an approval process with the federal government.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Apr 8, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Apr 8, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

New Sept. 11 exhibit stages the hunt for Osama bin Laden

Apr 8, 2020

NEW YORK — Declassified U.S. government documents and artifacts will be part of a new exhibit about the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack he masterminded. "Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden" opens Nov. 15 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a multimedia account of the mission that ended with bin Laden's death in Pakistan in 2011. With direct access to the operatives who led America's feverish post-9/11 hunt for the top terrorist, the exhibit presents a sort of whodunit drama with graphics, videos and the voices of the...

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Apr 8, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

Cracks were found in a key structural part on 38 Boeing jets

Apr 8, 2020

Inspections of some older Boeing jets have turned up structural cracks in more than three dozen of them, raising a new safety issue for the company already dealing with two deadly crashes involving a newer version of the same plane. Boeing said Thursday that airlines worldwide have inspected 810 planes following an order from U.S. safety regulators. Of those, 38 — or 5% — had "findings" requiring repairs. Airlines are under orders to inspect certain Boeing 737 NG planes for cracking in a part that helps keep wings attached to the fuselage. Boeing declined to identify which airlines found problems,...
