  • HHS releases 1,296 pages of regulations ahead of holiday weekend

    07/07/2014 7:16:28 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 14 replies
    As Americans scrambled ahead of the July Fourth holiday weekend on Thursday afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services released 1,296 pages of new regulations dealing with payment rates to doctors and hospitals. The timing of the news release is part of a long pattern for President Obama's administration, which has often used holidays as an opportunity to dump dense regulatory changes when most reporters and Americans are focused on their holiday plans. The release came at 4:15 p.m. Last year, the Obama administration used the days surrounding the July 4th holiday as an opening to announce a delay...

    In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability...

    March 12, 2014 4:35 PM Sebelius Won't Promise No More Obamacare Delays By Josh Encinias “There are 37 changes to the law,” Republican representative Dave Reichert said today at a House Ways and Means Committee hearing, noting that HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius had promised the American people during a Fox News appearance there would be no more changes to the law. “Can you make a promise to the American people that there will be no more delays to the so-called Affordable Care Act?” Reichert asked the secretary. Sebelius responded, “We will continue to put out regulations to the policies as...

    ven as stories pour in of Americans facing steeply higher health insurance premiums and canceled coverage, Team TISI +0.13% Obama just imposed new regulations that will make those problems worse. It’s almost like they can’t help themselves. On Friday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced new regulations mandating health insurers cover mental and behavioral health to the same extent they cover physical health care. A “mental health parity” mandate was passed by Congress in 2008, but Obama officials claim health insurers aren’t fully complying. (You’ll just have to overlook the irony of the Obama administration, which has postponed...

    At the risk of sounding like a fortune-teller or a braggart, WE TOLD YOU THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN! We see something new every day out of Obamacare. Many of us tried to warn the rest of America that Obamacare was not going to be good for our country. We were shouted down and accused of racism. We were told we were against providing a basic right, ie. health care, to Americans who had no health care insurance. When we tried to point out some of the things contained in the Affordable Care Act, we were called liars. President Obama...

    (CBS News) WASHINGTON -- CBS News has been digging into the cause of the delays in preparing the website for the government's health insurance market and has learned was a major interruption in the months before President Obama's re-election. At the height of the 2012 presidential election campaign, it was crunch time for the Obama administration to release key instructions so contractors could work toward the October 2013 deadline. But a Health and Human Services official who was closely involved tells CBS News that in late summer, the administration stopped issuing proposed rules for the Affordable Health Care Act until...

    With the Supreme Court giving President Obama’s new health care law a green light, federal and state officials are turning to implementation of the law — a lengthy and massive undertaking still in its early stages, but already costing money and expanding the government. The Health and Human Services Department “was given a billion dollars implementation money,” Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg of Montana said. “That money is gone already on additional bureaucrats and IT programs, computerization for the implementation.” “Oh boy,” Stan Dorn of the Urban Institute said. “HHS has a huge amount of work to do and the states...
