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.

82  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What do you think of gay rights in your country? on: August 20, 2017, 09:52:25 am
MarkD is 100% correct that the marriage decision should have been made by legislators and voters, not by unelected judges. However, at this point it is simply not worth it to try to undermine and overturn the decision. We fought the good fight in court, but should accept the loss and move on to more important issues.

As far as discrimination outside of marriage goes, while the Equality Act of 2017 goes too far, we do need a new law to expand rights in the 29 states where you can be fired if your employer thinks you are gay, while also clarifying that democratic executive rewriting of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 is illegal.

Boy, you and I think so much alike on almost everything you mentioned it's almost scary. I just don't know what "Equality Act of 2017" you're referring to as having gone too far.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/2282

Tbh defining sexual orientation as "homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality" strikes me as flawed.

"Your honor, the equality act does prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation, but it defines sexual orientation 'homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality'. The woman I fired identifies as Pansexual, so she isn't protected by the law."

Pansexuals are just edgy bisexuals.

Even if we assume that pansexuality falls under the category of bisexuality, which TBH kind of makes sense to me, what about asexuality?

Write-in: Someone with Pence's personality and views on social issues + Trump's views on economics and foreign policy.

So pure evil?

An incompetent racist a-hole, or a competent homophobic a-hole? Ugh, I will have to think on this some more...

H.W. I think it is still too early to judge on Trump. But he's catching up.

What would make Trump beat out HW, in your opinion?
As in make him better or worse than HW?

Worse, since you already think he's better. Unless I'm misunderstanding your post?

88  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Citizens who voted for Obama '08/'12 and Trump on: August 19, 2017, 08:28:53 pm
In my mind, "Obama Republican" sounds more like Obama '08/Romney '12 voter.
89  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Your least favorite president post-Nixon on: August 19, 2017, 08:05:35 pm
Worst to Best on Foreign Policy (Trump not included):

Dubya
Obama
Ford
Carter
Reagan (Only for the Summit Meetings with Gorbachev)
Clinton
HW Bush

It seems weird to dislike the foreign policy of both Dubya and Obama while liking the foreign policy of both Clinton and HW Bush. Care to elaborate?

If you think some races are superior than others and you show that in your viewpoint.

^^^Don't see why it should be narrower or broader than that.

I would include policies that are intended to disproportionately harm or favor one race over another.

Of course, that intention could be incredibly hard to prove.

92  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Open Borders on: August 19, 2017, 04:44:50 pm
Borders may be imaginary lines on a map, as leftists are so fond of pointing out; but the cultural differences between the peoples they separate are very real.

I don't know, the cultural difference between different areas of the US can sometimes be greater than, say, the difference between the US and Canada.

Is that a bad thing, though?

So you want Congress to start passing various right wing laws?

99  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: What would be your reaction if the previous poster were elected President? on: August 19, 2017, 03:42:11 pm
I would hope that he takes a "let the states decide" position on most social issues, rather than trying to enforce social conservatism at the federal level.
