Former Aetna CEO Ronald Williams said that the Affordable Care Act was flawed and that the exchanges are unsustainable, in an interview with CNBC. Many insurers began pulling out of the exchanges last year, citing that there were not enough young, healthy individuals signing up for coverage to compensate for sicker enrollees. "I think [Obamacare] was flawed," Williams said. "In health care you really need a balance of people who need health care today, tomorrow, and in the future." Additionally, "the rate structure was set in a way that those who needed health care today got the most affordable premiums. That means typically older citizens got a much better deal." Williams said that younger individuals paid more for coverage and didn't see the value in it so they didn't sign up. "We're missing their premiums and that's causing the overall rate of increase to be greater and to help make the insurance pool unsustainable financially," he explained.

I think that in times like this we must be pragmatic, by which I mean create more exchanges and find a balance founded on collaboration between economies" Video ID: 20170221- 048 Video on Demand: http://www.

NEW DELHI: Amid the Trump Administration's move to curb H1B visas that will impact India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today pressed the US to have a "balanced and farsighted perspective" on the movement of skilled professionals. He made the comment while receiving a 26-member bi- partisan US Congressional delegation here. Welcoming the Congressional Representatives to India, he said their visit augurs a good start to bilateral exchanges following the change in the US Administration and Congress. He recalled his positive conversation with President Donald Trump and the shared commitment to further strengthen ties that have grown deeper in the last two and a half years. In this regard, he recognized Congress' strong bipartisan support for the India-US partnership, a PMO statement said. Modi shared his perspective on areas where both countries can work even more closely, including in facilitating greater people-to-people linkages that have over the years helped contribute to each other's prosperity.

NEW DELHI: State-owned IDBI Bank today said it proposes to dilute stake in some non-core businesses to shore up capital base. The board of the bank has approved in-principle the proposal to divest some of its non-core investments subject to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and final approval obtained for each transaction, IDBI Bank said in a regulatory filing to the stock exchanges. The decision was taken at the board meeting held today. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in 2015 had hinted at a change in IDBI Bank wherein the government would continue to hold a majority stake, yet keep it at arm's length. Citing the example of Axis Bank, he had wondered if IDBI Bank could follow that model. But since then, there has not been much progress on the plans due to one reason or another. IDBI Bank has a large portfolio of real estate which was not taken into consideration during the valuation exercise.

In fact, between 2012 and the middle of 2014, the percentage of hospitalizations among uninsured HIV patients dropped from 13.7 percent to 5.5 percent since more people had coverage. Meanwhile, in states that didn't expand Medicaid, the percentage of hospitalizations for uninsured HIV patients rose from 14.5 percent to 15.7 percent. Researchers also found that HIV patients without health insurance were nearly 40 percent more likely to die during their hospital stay, compared to those with health insurance. To be sure, HIV-positive patients in Indiana may get coverage through other sources, including traditional Medicaid, insurance funded through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program and commercial coverage on the exchanges. But HIP 2.0 was particularly important for this population because it provides substance abuse and mental health treatment that includes case management and even non-emergency transportation to get people to doctorsappointments and therapy sessions.
