An unwelcome surprise from the Cook County health system
July 14, 2014

CountyCare — that's Cook County's attempt to leverage federal dollars through a Medicaid managed care program — is in a heap of trouble. Expenses outstripped revenues by $21 million in the first six months of the county's fiscal year, through May 31.

The shortfall is expected to grow to $63.5 million by the end of the fiscal year, Nov. 30. That's driving a projected $85.9 million shortfall in the 2014 Cook County budget.

Next year looks grim, too: Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle projects a $168.9 million deficit for the county in fiscal 2015, which starts Dec. 1, including a $50 million deficit in the health care system.

Chicago’s public health system is facing a massive $67 million shortfall after an early adoption of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion cost much more than expected, Crain’s Chicago Business reports.
Cook County, which encompasses Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, made a deal with the Obama administration to get an early start on the health care law’s Medicaid expansion in 2012.
But the resulting program, CountyCare, is costing millions more than original projections.
The prototype Medicaid expansion lost Cook County $21 million in the first six months of operation — that’s expected to balloon to $63.5 million by November 30, according to the Chicago Tribune.

[From The Weekly Standard]

Obamacare Navigators,'Assisters' Helped Less Than Two People Per Day
Jul 17, 2014
Nine in ten heard from clients again with post-enrollment problems.

During the open enrollment period for the state and federal health care exchanges, each staff member and volunteer worked with an average of 1.8 people per day, according to a survey of assister programs released by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Kaiser calculated the number of people receiving aid between October 1, 2013 and the end of April, 2014:
* More than 4,400 Assister Programs, employing more than 28,000 full-time-equivalent staff and volunteers, helped an estimated 10.6 million people during the first Open Enrollment period.*

If you do the math, 28,000 individuals assisting 10.6 million people over 210 days breaks down to 1.8 people per day per service representative.

Biden’s ‘Hope And Change’ Backtrack ‘A Really Bad Moment For The White House’
07/17/2014

National Journal’s Ron Fournier called Joe Biden’s claim that the change promised by President Barack Obama “didn’t happen” was “a really bad moment for the White House,” noting it undermines the central premise of Obama’s election to the presidency in 2008.

Fournier appeared on CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday morning to discuss the vice president’s inconvenient admission on Wednesday.

“There must be a clip after that where he says,‘Hey, I’m just kidding,’” Fournier remarked.“He basically conceded the original sin of the Obama presidency, which is,‘We promised to at least start changing Washington, and we failed.’”

“And then later on, what he does say there is,‘We can change things if we’re the drivers of the change,’” the National Journal reporter continued.

“Well, who’s been driving the last five and a half years? It was a really bad moment for the White House.”
