Risk Pools: The Motion Picture! (Part 2: Why #ShortAssPlans Suck)
2019 OPEN ENROLLMENT ENDS (most states)
Time: D H M S
As promised, here's Part 2 of my Risk Pool explainer video!
Part 1 went over the basics of how risk pools work in general, and why segregating sick people into a separate pool is a terrible idea.
In Part 2, I go into more detail about the different types of NON-ACA plans available on the individual market, why they mostly stink, and how the repeal of the Individual Mandate Penalty, especially when combined with Trump's yanking away restrictions on "short-term" and "association" plans, will take an existing problem and make it far worse.
Oh, yeah: It involves Dabney Coleman and Morgan Freeman.
