DFW:

As representative for the Texas regional movement, we are happy to abide by the federal process. We will also like to hold a referendum among the people of Texas to decide whether they would wish to leave the South.

Thank you for addressing this matter.

Good afternoon everyone. I am fully aware and have been briefed on the situation regarding the Northern Nationalist terrorist and Representative Peebs. I would like to let everyone know that all options are being considered regarding the situation and that we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of Representative Peebs. That said, the secession of Lincoln is not presently on the table, especially through such violent means. I encourage the residents of Lincoln (which I also happen to be) to think about what is at stake and to help protect our region and nation.

It is with upmost sadness that we mourn the loss of Emmanuel Macron, the President of our oldest ally, France. I will be in constant communication with the Prime Minister of France and the new President to ensure that everything is done to help bring to justice whoever was behind this act. I will also be ensuring that all Atlasian Citizens who visit France will be safe and not in harm's way should this escalate beyond the present situation. I will be ordering all Atlasian flags be lowered to Half-Staff today to honor President Macron.

Everybody, I have enjoyed being President very much, I have not been able to do nearly as much as I had hoped in my Presidency, but we have gotten some good things done. However, as of late, particularly since I swore in for my 2nd term, I have become inactive and have not written a single bill. While I have signed all of the bills that have landed on my desk, I believe this is not enough. I am resigning from the Presidency tomorrow evening, at 8 PM Eastern / 7 PM Central. I hope that my future predecessors can be much more active than me, because Atlasia deserves someone who is more active than myself at this time. I am glad that healthcare reform, which is something that personally impacts me deeply in real life, will be the final bill for me to sign. Thank you and I appreciate everything the federalists and those who have voted for me since I first joined the game have done for me.

An Act of Congress
To reform and regionalize the public healthcare system by creating a uniform public healthcare option, while devolving major regulatory authority to regions and ensuring universal access to healthcare regardless of income or age.


Be it enacted in both Houses of Congress Assembled,
Quote
This Bill is to be Entitled: The Reforming and Regionalizing Public Healthcare Act of 2017

Part I: Health Care Marketplace

Section 1: Regionalization


1. All present healthcare exchanges are abolished as of January 1, 2018.

2. Three new exchanges will be created and administered by the Health & Human Services (H&HS) Sub-Department, within the Department of Internal Affairs, with jurisdictions matching those of the three Regions. The H&HS Sub-Department will coordinate with regional officials during the setup and implementation process, and hand over administration and regulation of the new exchanges on January 1, 2018, to the respective Regional Government

3. All Federal restrictions on the access to these markets will be abolished as of January 1, 2018, including but not limited to the sale of insurance across regional lines.

4. On that date, the Regions will become the primary regulator of access onto their market and responsible for determining the nature and structure of healthcare providers allowed onto the exchange to compete, provided all terms of this act and federal law are complied with.

5. Should a region’s legislature fail to act by the above date, the H&HS Sub-Department will continue to administer the exchange until such time as the Regional Government is able to assume control.

Section 2: Coverage
1. Minimum Coverage Requirements


a. Preventative Care: Every exchange must offer at least one provider that covers preventative care, be it in the form of a private insurer, co-op or public health care benefit. Preventive care shall be defined as care related to disease prevention, early diagnosis and health maintenance, including clinical examinations, immunization, prenatal care and medically indicated screenings.

b. Each exchange will be required to have at least one provider that covers catastrophic and emergency room care.

c. AtlasCare must be available to all populations mentioned in Part III of this Act.

d. All other mandates on either citizens or healthcare providers will be the responsibility of the regions.

2. Health Care Savings Accounts

a. Individuals and Households may establish Healthcare Savings Accounts (HSA) with unlimited tax free contributions. Employers may also set up these accounts for their employees, with any matching contributions also tax free.

b. The money in these HSAs must be used for healthcare and healthcare related expenditures. No prohibitions will exist on the use of this money for any healthcare or healthcare related expense, including insurance premiums. The money will also be carried over from year to year.

c. The money in these accounts will be invested as a reasonable, sustainable rate of growth and insured in its full amount, by the Federal Government, under the FDIC.

d. All contributions by an individual to their HSA, made during the course of the year will be tax deductible.

3. Subsidized Health Care Coverage

a. Healthcare Insurance will be subsidized in accordance with a sliding scale subsidy based on age and income in relation to a maximum of $12,000 annually, indexed to Health care inflation.

b. The formula is as follows: y = 1 - (x - f(t))/2

 where x is the multiple of $12,000 that their annual salary amounts to and f(t) is the formula for determining the max subsidy cutoff as a function of age t. (f(t) = 0.0022*(t-20)^2 - 0.0291*(t-20) +1.66))

c. The formula will be applied towards the premiums, co-pays and deductibles of  qualifying providers, as determined by those who comply with all provisions of Federal and applying regional regulations, on the exchanges, as established in Section 1.

d. Anyone who doesn’t have a qualifying insurance program for any period of time, will have the subsidy distributed to a Health Savings Account, as established in Section 2, Part 1, subject to further regulation by the regions.

e. The subsidy will be paid for using the existing revenues for the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and Medicare. The Medicare Payroll Tax will be renamed the Health Care Payroll Tax and increased from 1.45% to 2.50% on employees and employers, for a total of 5%.  

f. The subsidy shall be administered with the H&HS Sub-Department by the newly created Healthcare Subsidy Office (HSO).

4. Prescription Drug Out-of-Pocket Monthly Cap

a. Each family or individual who legally resides in the Republic of Atlasia shall receive a tax credit for full compensation of any monthly amount for which prescription drugs exceeded $250 in out-of-pocket costs.

b. These tax credits will be paid for using the existing revenues for the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, and Medicare.

Part II: AtlasCare

Section 1: Relationship with the Exchanges

1. AtlasCare shall be a federally administered, market competing public health insurance option, operated by the newly created AtlasCare Office (ACO) within sub-department of H&HS, within the Department of Internal Affairs.

2. AtlasCare shall be automatically provided in all of the Regional Exchanges unless a region opts out of AtlasCare for their Exchange, in which case the mandates in Part I, Section 2.1, shall apply in full to ensure that care remains available, as well as an option for subsidy recipients. AtlasCare will also be available in all regions as an option for active duty military, veteran healthcare and senior healthcare, and the other special groups as detailed in Part III, regardless of a regional opt-out.

3. If at any point a region, which had previously opted out of AtlasCare, fails to provide the regulated options as established in Part 1, Section 2.1, all citizens will be eligible to enroll in AtlasCare until such time as compliance may be obtained.

4. The AtlasCare administration will be tasked with acquiring the most extensive provider network possible while maintaining high quality standards and remaining cost competitive on the Regional Healthcare Exchanges relative to the cost of other providers. It may establish quality standards to ensure the protection of its insured populations.  The AtlasCare administration is authorized to negotiate with all medical suppliers and providers to secure lower prices, including but not limited to prescription drug companies.

Section 2: Components of AtlasCare
1. Eligibility and Benefits


a. All Atlasian citizens are eligible for coverage under AtlasCare, entitling them to public, quality standard of care.

Part III: Transition Periods and Coverage for Special Populations

Section 1: Transition for Medicare and Medicaid

1. Recipients of Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program will be transitioned over in an orderly fashion, administered by the H&HS Sub-Department, into AtlasCare program, with their premiums, co-pays and deductibles subsidized 100%, under the premium subsidy established and paid for in Part 1, Section 2.3. All those who were eligible for the expansion of these programs under the ACA, will be eligible for this provision regardless of whether the state or Region took the voluntary expansions or not.

2. Medicare Recipients will be transitioned over in an orderly fashion, administered by the H&HS Sub-Department to the equivalent parts of Atlascare, from the equivalent parts of Medicare that they are presently enrolled.

3. All Federal government employees will be transitioned to AtlasCare by January 1, 2018, including members of Congress and the President. With the present healthcare programs for said people abolished under the oversight of the Department of Internal Affairs.

4. The Department of Internal Affairs will be responsible for directing, supervising and effecting this transition by the date of January 1, 2018. The Department shall work with its subordinates and regional authorities to ensure coordination and ensure that there are no lapses in services for the recipients of Medicare, Medicaid and similar programs.

5. Once the transition has been completed, the Department of Internal Affairs, shall direct for the elimination of unnecessary administrations, offices, and sub departments that are no longer required subsequent to this transition.

Section 2: Coverage for Special Populations

1. All active duty military personnel shall be eligible for full coverage under AtlasCare, fully paid for by the Defense Health Agency, of the Sub-Department of Defense, within the Department of State, with no premiums, co-pays or deductibles.

2. All Veterans shall be eligible for full coverage under AtlasCare, with no co-pays or deductibles, with subsidies for premiums as described in Part 1, Section 3 of this Act.  Cost normally associated with co-pays and deductibles shall be covered by the government through the Veterans Benefits Administration.
  
3. A “veteran” is defined for the purpose of this section as any person who served on active duty in the armed forces of Atlasia and received an honorable or general discharge.

4. Upon the completion of this transition of Veterans and Activity Duty Military to the Atlas Care program, with AtlasCare expenses covered by the VBA and Defense Health Administration, the Department of State shall subsequently review and direct the elimination of unnecessary administrations, offices and sub-departments that are no longer required subsequent to the transition.

Section 3: Pre-existing Conditions and High Risk Populations

1. A Comprehensive Insurance Equality Pool (CIEP) shall be established within AtlasCare so that those with pre-existing conditions can receive affordable care without discrimination.  Those with pre-existing conditions or other factors such as age or gender which may increase risk to health or risk of health related cost shall be covered under AtlasCare at the same cost to the consumer as those without these conditions.

2. The CIEP shall be subsidized out of funds derived from the same revenue provided for the health subsidy in Part I, Section 2.3, clause e, to the extent necessary to achieve cost parity to the consumer.

3. The CIEP shall have open enrollment periods determined by the AtlasCare Health Directorate.  Those with changes in condition or subject to increased premium cost at their current insurance provider may enroll in the high risk pool program through special enrollment so long as they have maintained coverage through AtlasCare or another insurer prior to such change in condition.

4. A Risk Adjustment Program will be established to involve private providers with annual net income greater than $50 million. Plans with lower actuarial risk will make payments to plans with higher actuarial risk to adjust for variation in distribution of high risk patients. This program will be administered by the Health Resources & Services Administration.

President Goldwater,

Last night the Northern Separatist Act passed the Congress.  Since we no longer have a Vice President, the bill goes directly to your desk for executive action.

Before Goldwater this mattered not, yet we find ourselves wanting for the presence of the Vice President.

Also I have recommended to Goldwater that he create his own thread so he can control the topic heading and OP.

As fond as I am of pomp and circumstance, seeing as this particular bill is an emergency measure to combat domestic terrorism without which my office is unable to effectively address the bombings and mass killings sweeping across Lincoln, I do hope it won't be delayed more than is absolutely necessary.
