Senate Health Plan Falls Short of Promise for Cheaper Care, Experts Say

But millions of Americans will pay more for an insurance policy that comes with a much steeper deductible under the new Senate plan, according to some health economists and insurance experts. It could also make it much harder to find a comprehensive plan covering various conditions ranging from heart disease to depression that would not be prohibitively expensive.Continue reading the main story“This is going to be a very unstable market” where only the very sickest people resort to buying coverage on the federal exchanges at much higher prices, said Paul B. Ginsburg, a health economist and the director of the Center for Health Policy at the Brookings Institution.Those likely to suffer the most under the Senate plan are people who would not be eligible for any remaining subsidies, he said, because they could be priced out of the market. Most worrisome to those opposing the Senate bill is that states could give insurers leeway to offer skimpy plans that cover a lot less and exclude people with certain illnesses.Insurers have been largely quiet since the Senate Republicans released their version of the bill on Thursday morning. But some did criticize the legislation for not doing more to help people pay for insurance.“The draft bill does not expand coverage; it does not do enough to protect people in need of care; nor does it provide enough assistance to those who need help in paying for health care and coverage,” said Bernard J. Tyson, the chief executive of Kaiser Permanente, a California insurer that offers plans on the exchanges in eight states and in Washington.If the Senate version becomes law, insurers could increase premiums for individual coverage by at least 20 percent more than the double-digit increases already under consideration.

New Solar Study in Nevada Sings Same Old I-Done-it-Wrong Song

Let’s address something head on. Solar energy provides a benefit to all consumers, even those who don’t have solar panels. Study after study in states from Maine to Arizona, and by groups such as the The Brookings Institution and the Natural Resources Defense Council prove this point. Solar is transforming America’s energy use. Nationally, rooftop solar is growing faster than ever. We reached one million installations nationwide earlier this year, and we’re on pace to clear two million in just two more years. That number is expected to hit 4.5 million in the end of 2021, and that’s not counting the number of community and utility scale solar projects […]
