Obama Administration Rejects Republican States' Health Law Waiver Requests


On Monday both Indiana and Louisiana were denied by the Obama administration to waiver from the healthcare reform law. The Department of Health and Human Services stated the two states do not need any adjustments from the medical loss ratio.

"The agency determined that the health plans of Indiana and Louisiana can meet the threshold and that consumers will get better value without an adjustment," said Gary Cohen, acting director of oversight at the HHS Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight.

Delaware and North Dakota were also denied waivers. Applications from Florida, Kansas, Michigan, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas are now being reviewed. Waivers have been granted to Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Nevada, New Hampshire and Wisconsin
