Obamacare's third annual enrollment period for health insurance is officially underway. Americans who do not have access to employer-sponsored health insurance, are self-employed, or have been dumped into the individual marketplace by their employers have the opportunity to sign up or renew their...
Medical providers will tell you that about 75 percent of health care can be provided in a primary care setting. Yet rising health insurance premiums and narrower networks are making it a burden for patients to access basic health care.
Obamacare's failing co-ops (consumer-operated and oriented health plans) simply reinforce the fact that government intervention in health care creates all sorts of problems.
Governor Pat McCrory expanded insurance coverage for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by signing the Autism Health Insurance Coverage Act into law today at a ceremony in Charlotte.
As part of his remarks while visiting the White House on his first day in the United States, Pope Francis made a strong plea on behalf of religious liberty, which he specifically directed at President Obama. This came shortly before he made an unscheduled visit with the Little Sisters of the Poor...
I have never been a fan of the Fair Tax, a proposal to abolish the income tax and substitute a national sales tax. My opposition has nothing to do with the merits of a national sales tax as opposed to an income tax per se. Clearly, as an economist, I agree that the proper and most efficient tax...
Critics questioned whether a recent state audit attributing a 9 percent savings in Medicaid costs to the nonprofit Community Care of North Carolina was a useful guide to policymakers weighing reforms in the government health insurance program covering 1.4 million poor, elderly, and disabled North Ca
The Senate on Monday night gave preliminary approval to House Bill 372, the Medicaid Transformation Act, by a 38-10 vote after a dispute over rules and decorum and a testy debate over whether this legislation would make expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act more likely.
This Halloween, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) customers were spooked by skyrocketing premiums when opening their 2015 rate notification letters for their non-group health plans. While it turns out that the mailings provided incorrect information for an estimated 38,000...
Lovers of socialized medicine are quick to point out that the United States is the only country in the developed world that doesn't have some form of universal government run, i.e., single payer, health care system. While this may be true, the US system of health care payment and delivery does...
Obamacare's original second enrollment period to #GetCovered has just about come to a close. (It was supposed to end on Sunday, but the administration announced this week that they will be opening a new special enrollment period during tax season.) The Obama Administration has been chirping...
Last week the Gaston County commissioners voted unanimously to give themselves and future commissioners health insurance benefits for life at the taxpayers' expense after serving one term. Gaston County is already struggling to pay the cost of health insurance for its full-time employees...
SCOTUS may have saved Obamacare from having to operate as written, but the landmark decision on King v Burwell has not deterred those on the right side of things from focusing on making health insurance (and more importantly health care) more affordable for more Americans.
It looks as if the recent U.S. Supreme Court oral arguments in King v. Burwell transpired as expected. While all justices must follow the golden rule that a statute cannot be interpreted in isolation but instead must be read in full context, there were differing opinions as to whether Congress...

All kinds of deals are made during the legislative session. Whether a distillery can sell unlimited amounts or only one bottle to people taking tours; whether vehicle registration fees should increase 50 percent or 30 percent or at all; whether solar subsidies should be cut off now or extended...
In just one month, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether health insurance subsidies issued under the Affordable Care Act should be distributed only to insurance companies in state-based exchanges.

It's interesting. As we watch the Obamacare implementation fiasco play out, the ineptitude of the people who specified, designed and built the site is simply amazing.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday ruled 2-1 that the federal government cannot tax employers in order to provide health insurance subsidies in North Carolina and 35 other states that refused to establish Obamacare exchanges, potentially threatening the national health reform.
