    Yes, let me say that again: FULLY REPEALED. Most people here in DC were actually surprised that BOTH Democrats and Republicans agreed to FULL REPEAL of these taxes. But as stated above, when you think a little more about why these taxes were FULLY REPEALED, it was not so surprising.
  • Soooo, this past weekend, the Senate HELP and the House Energy and Commerce (EC) Committee announced a bi-partisan, bi-cameral agreement on a surprise medical billing proposal. As I speculated in prior updates, the proposal calls for a hybrid of a (1) “benchmark” rate up to a specified dollar amount, and then (2) an “arbitration process” for any bills in excess of this magic specified dollar amount. Interestingly, the “magic” specified dollar amount would be $750. This is lower than the EC Committee’s original hybrid benchmark/arbitration proposal which called for a $1,250 threshold. And, this is considerably lower than the threshold amount that I – and others – have suggested (i.e., we were suggesting $5,000).

  • The insurance market is cyclical.  During a “soft” market, there’s lots of competition between companies as they try to expand their market share.  Premiums hold steady or decrease.  It’s fairly easy to get coverage for all kinds of risks.  As someone looking to buy insurance, you may have a number of options from which to choose and underwriting rules are less stringent. A “hard” market happens as positive financial results, become more difficult for insurers.  Payouts may have increased over a long period of time.  Challenging regulatory changes that negatively impact results occur and profits have declined.  As a result, insurance companies are less inclined to take on new business.  The requirements to get insurance are stricter and premiums are more expensive.  There may be attrition in the insurance market as fewer players offer coverage to consumers.  Capacity becomes scarcer....read more
