Len Nichols Quoted in New Republic


How Much Is Obamacare Raising Your Insurance

Rate? Depends on Which State You Live In.

“I put the most credence in what insurers do, not what they say,” said Nichols.  “I see United [Healthcare] and others entering exchanges they avoided in 2014.  This is a collective judgment that these markets are working, contradicting the cassandras once again. Rather loudly, actually. Actions don’t lie, or spin.”

Is it Time for Comprehensive Competitive Pricing in Medicare?

One of the most promising options to address the serious financial problems Medicare faces is comprehensive competitive pricing (CCP). Under CCP, the Medicare program accepts bids for the entitlement benefit package, and then uses those risk-adjusted bids to determine the government’s contribution to a basic set of benefits. On Monday, June 9th, at the ARM in San Diego, the panelists will describe CCP and its effects on the fairness and efficiency of the Medicare program, discussing the economic and political implications of this major reform.
