A Broke, and Broken, Flood Insurance Program

The program has other troubles as well. It cannot force vulnerable households to buy insurance, even though they are required by law to have it. Its flood maps can’t keep up with new construction that can change an area’s flood risk. It has spent billions of dollars repairing houses that just flood again. Its records, for instance, show that a house in Spring, Tex., has been repaired 19 times, for a total of $912,732 — even though it is worth only $42,024.And after really big floods, the program must rely on armies of subcontractors to determine payments, baffling and infuriating policyholders, like Mr. Clutter, who cannot figure out who is opposing their claims, or why.Continue reading the main storyRoy E […]

Harvey Victims Face Hurdles, and Maybe Bills, in Getting Aid

PhotoA home in Spring, Tex., north of Houston, was still inundated on Tuesday, more than three days after Hurricane Harvey made landfall.Credit Ilana Panich-Linsman for The New York TimesAs a brutal storm continues to pound the Gulf Coast, tens of thousands of homeowners are turning to the government for help in repairing and rebuilding. Much of the aid they receive will require taking on debt — an unpleasant surprise to those who may lack the income to pay it back.And as victims of past disasters can attest, that aid may be cumbersome to obtain, insufficient to cover the cost of reconstruction, and take years to fully pay out.Government officials emphasize that the federal programs are meant to supplement, not replace, insurance and other financial buffers against catastrophe […]

Republicans in Congress Bypass Trump to Shore Up Health Law

In California, the state agency that runs the insurance marketplace announced on Tuesday that rates would increase by 12.5 percent on average next year. That is slightly lower than the rate increases Californians saw this year. But Peter V. Lee, the executive director of the agency, Covered California, said the average increase would be twice as high for popular “silver” plans if the Trump administration blocked the cost-sharing payments.“This policy allowed health plans to stay in the market when they might have left otherwise,” Mr. Lee said of the potential additional increase, which he called a “surcharge.”He added, “By the end of this month, we have to hear there’s clarity that the cost-sharing reductions will be made, or we will apply the surcharge.”In Kentucky, according to data posted by the federal government, Anthem has requested rate increases averaging 34 percent for plans covering 69,500 people. BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has sought rate increases averaging 33 percent.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred […]

New Health Bill Is Forecast to Leave 15 Million More Uninsured Next Year

Mr. Cruz’s proposal was included in a version of the bill released last week, but it has been assailed by the insurance industry. While the provision was omitted from the latest version of the bill that was released on Thursday, it remains under consideration to be part of the repeal legislation, a Republican congressional aide said.The budget office released its analysis as Senate Republicans are struggling to keep alive their longtime goal of repealing the Affordable Care Act — and to settle on a strategy for achieving that aim. But its conclusions are not likely to help.The budget office did have good news about the latest version’s fiscal impact: it would reduce federal budget deficits by a total of $420 billion over 10 years, about $100 billion more than an earlier version of the legislation. The change resulted mainly from the fact that Senate leaders decided to keep two taxes on high-income people that would have been eliminated by the previous version of the Senate bill.How the Number of Uninsured Would ChangeThe increase in the number of uninsured is virtually the same under the initial and the revised versions of the proposed Senate Republican health plans.Senate repeal plan60 millionuninsuredInitial House billFinal House billRevised Senate plan50Initial Senate plan40Under theAffordableCare Act30201020172026Senate repeal plan60 millionuninsuredInitial House billFinal House billRevised Senate plan50Initial Senate plan40Under theAffordableCare Act30201020172026The latest version of the Senate bill would increase average insurance premiums by 20 percent next year, the budget office estimate, but it would reduce premiums after 2019, so that in 2026 premiums for a typical “benchmark plan” would be 25 percent lower than under current law.That is not all positive. One of the main reasons for the lower premiums is that the typical insurance plan would, according to the budget office, “pay for a smaller share of the total cost of covered benefits.” In other words, out-of-pocket expenses from deductibles and co-payments would grow.Moreover, the budget office said, even though average premiums for a standard benchmark plan would decline after 2019, many older people would face substantial increases in premiums.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

The C.B.O. Score: A Few Bright Spots for Republicans. The Rest Can Be Scored as Grim.

It said the legislation would increase deductibles, make insurance more skimpy and destabilize markets. Average premiums would go down largely because the insurance they would pay for would become thinner and less valuable. Older people more likely to need insurance would be priced out of the market.Continue reading the main storyPresident Trump asked the Senate to write a bill that was less “mean” than a version passed by the House last month. According to a White House news release, the budget office’s score is not disqualifying. […]
