10 Health Insurance Companies Get ObamaCare Waivers — For Their Own Employees

02/23/2011

As of Feb. 2011, HHS updated its website to show that it has granted 915 waivers to Obamacare.

And now we hear this.

(CNSNews.com)The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has granted waivers to 10 health insurance companies, including giants such as Cigna and Aetna and divisions of Blue Cross Blue Shield, from the requirements of the new health care law, also known as ObamaCare.

The waivers allow these companies to impose annual limits on the health coverage they provide to their employees. Under Obamacare, companies that do not get special waivers from the administration must phase out their caps on annual health-care benefits between now and 2014 when they must offer limitless annual benefits. The Obama administration began granting waivers to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act last September.

The health insurance company benefiting most from a special waiver from the Obamacare provision is Cigna Corp., which has 265,000 enrollees on its health plan. HHS approved Cigna a waiver on Sept. 26, 2010, allowing it to cap the health insurance benefits for those 265,000 employees.

(So far, among all entities recieving waivers–not just health insurance companies–the greatest single beneficiary has been the United Federation of Teachers, a union, which won a waiver from lifting the benefit cap for 351,000 enrollees.) MORE

Why does anybody need a waiver to a law that’s been ruled unconstitutional? This is just more micromanagement from the Socialists in the White House. Obama is doing favors for his buddies. This is about as sick as it gets.

Down with Obamacare.

“Why does anybody need a waiver to a law that’s been ruled unconstitutional?”

My question is why do these companies need waivers for their employees when ultimately it is the left’s goal to eliminate these companies and replace them with a single payer system anyway?

Giving waivers for employees that won’t have a job soon if the Democrats have their way.

I’m hoping at least one company has the stones to take obama on and DROP coverage to those over 21 children and prove that all his wishful thinking doesn’t trump the constitution. You can’t enforce laws that don’t exist.

Can’t wait for the signs on the mall come tax day….
Egypt, Libia, Obama’s Next!!! Gitmo’s next most famous terrorist, and enemy of America.
