Armstrong and Getty with Craig Gottwals 11/21/13 re: Illegal Subsidies Off the Exchange and Hospitals Paying Obamacare Premiums

Most of the media latched into the fact that in a status call on Obamacare earlier in the week, the Administration announced that the whole website still needs about 40% more work to be built. Astonishing. But the Administration also announced yet another blatant violation to the text of PPACA.

And in a legal advisory to hospitals, the American Hospital Association asserts that the federal government's own regulations "clearly allow for another person or organization to pay the insurance premium for the enrolling individual."  This could have a dramatic negative impact on the risk pool in the Exchanges.
