tv   MONEY With Melissa Francis  FOX Business  November 18, 2013 5:00pm-6:01pm EST

5:00 pm
under 16,000. the s&p losing about a third of a percent. nasdaq also down about 1%. >> keep in mind after the bell we, urban outfitters beating on eps but shy on revenue. melissa: what a way to start your week with obamacare bailout talk? that's right. very insurance companies getting played by the government right now, will be turning to you to keep them afloat and the president said they could. you got to hear this because even when they say it's not it is always about money. melissa: the bailout for obamacare. taxpayers, meaning you, may now be on the hook for the health care law, all courtesy of a provision called the risk corridor? have you heard about this? no one presumably read this far into the bill. but this clause hidden in the health care law protects
5:01 pm
insurers for losses first three years the law is in effect. senator marco rubio is introducing legislation to repeal the clause but it may not stop you from having to dig deep into your pockets for a bailout for the insurance companies. here to explain radio talk show host monica crowley and "weekly standard"'s steve hayes. both are fox news contributors. so i can't believe that we're sort of just hearing about this and figuring it out now. it is called the risk corridor. it basically it says if insurers costs are 3% more than what they targeted, we the taxpayer, will give them 50% of that difference. if it is more than 8% above what they anticipated, we're going to give them 80% of that difference. oh my! >> yeah, you're exactly right. we're just finding out about this over the last week or so but those of us who opposed obamacare all along, steve and "weekly standard," and i we were warning exactly read this. nobody read the bill. we were warning about these kind
5:02 pm
of time bombs that would blow up as the law started to be implemented. this obama fix is not even a fix -- melissa: makes it worse. >> throws off the whole risk pool. in terms, wait a minute with only people going through a broken website, that exacerbates it more, we'll drive up premiums. melissa: steve, explain to people really clearly what we're talking about here. people in the larger pool, who have piled in. >> right. melissa: those are now folks who are, you know, use a lot of health care. they're geting a cheap plan but actually consuming a ton of it. in order to offset those people, they couldn't get insurance before because they had preexisting conditions. just to set off those premiums and those costs we were putting all the other people in who were healthy and buying somewhat expensive policies though they weren't using anything. those people don't have to go in. health care companies getting paid very little to then cover these very expense seven people. that's a very high cost. they are going to say, 8% above
5:03 pm
what we thought, a heck of a lot more than 8%, right? >> exactly. the original idea was to redistribute the potential losses or gains, also on the upside, most of us thought it would be losses. >> yeah. >> redistribute them among the insurance companies. it wasn't necessarily, if you believe people giveing a charitable view of this, wasn't intended as a bailout. given the problems we've had, no question it will end up as a bailout. if you go back and look what happened was this was ill defined part of the original bill. it is now been explained in a 100 of page rule or regulation. and basically the answer to these questions is, this is going to be, they don't have to worry about budget neutrality. this goes. >> i want to get to that because this show is called "money." we're not about politics. we follow the money where it's going. i've been wondering now you have the huge cost, who will pay for it? are the insurance companies going bankrupt? oh, no, you and me the taxpayer
5:04 pm
will bail out insurance companies violating yet another promise we heard from the president. i will get your reaction on the other side. >> i will not sign insurance reform, as badly as i think it is necessary if that reform adds even one dime to our deficit over the next decade and i mean what i say. melissa: well, without question, now, another untruth. >> yes, now remember when the democrats and president obama were trying to push this through, they kept going back to the cba with phony numbers to get the cost estimate over 10 years under a trillion dollars. they came in at something like $930 billion, right? now the cbo has gone in put real actual numbers, said 2.6 trillion. that is probably a low ball. melissa: right. >> now the american taxpayer is look higher premiums, higher taxes, higher deductibles assuming they get health insurance. on top of that we may foot a bill for the bailout of insurance companies. melissa: it was so obvious out of the gate, if you add a bunch of sick people to the health
5:05 pm
care rolls who cost a lot of money and consume a lot of care and don't have money to put in it will cost a lot of money. anyone who could do math, we knew how it would turn out. steve, senator rubio introducing legislation to repeal provision, don't health care companies go bankrupt and we bail them out anyway because they have been thrown under the bus by the government? >> if ever got to that point the answer would be yes. melissa: it could. >> i think we won't get to the point. very smart, very clever political argument says we don't want to bail out insurance companies. how many democrats in red states -- melissa: we don't want to bail out insurance companies, but we are no matter what. how are we not? >> if you push this to strip it out. this is number of different tactical moves republicans make now while everybody is paying attention because we have to, look what a calamity this is. >> what is interesting, if you take a step back to look at bigger picture, you could argue
5:06 pm
the left who put the whole monstrosity together their objective is to destroy the private insurance market. this may put us into ultimate plan to get us into single-payer. melissa: and drive insurance companies out of business. >> to kill the entire market. >> or subsidize them through the back door. >> boy, that is depressing. thanks very much. coming up next the president's words doing more damage. that you could keep your doctor, another promise is turning out about untrue. paying for a plan you may not like, to see a doctor you don't even know. we have a former hospital ceo to tell you why you are in so much pain. more "money" coming up. hi honey, did you get e toaster cozy?
5:07 pm
yep. got all the cozies. [ grandma ] with n fedex one rate, i cod ll a box and ship it r one flat rate. so i kn untilt was full. you'd be crazy not to. is tt nana? [ male announcer ] fedex one rate. simple, flat rate shipping with the reliability of fedex.
5:08 pm
5:09 pm
melissa: so if you like your doctor you might not be able to keep your doctor after all. it's a shocker, right? now that costs for health care companies are skyrocketing insurers like united health care are discussing thousands of doctors from plans. physicians in at least 10 states receiving terminations letters from united health care, citing significant changes in health care. how did this promise go so
5:10 pm
wrong? wee have a former hospital ceo. stan, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. melissa: explain to me and our audience the mechanism behind this. lots of people are getting letters. you're seeing really great doctors, for example, moffitt cancer center in tampa, florida, getting cut completely out of the plans so they're no longer included. why are health care companies doing this? >> i think it is all centered around the medicare advantage program which has been very popular with medicare patients but has been very expensive from the government standpoint. i believe what is happening with the cutbacks in the advantage program, through the affordable care act cutbacks many companies take opportunity high utilizing doctors from their plan. melissa: let me stop you there because i want to know what that means. what is a high utilizing doctor? isn't everybody paid the same no matter if you're getting
5:11 pm
reimbursements on medicare advantage? >> on a medicare advantage the reward is fixed payment system to the insurance companies. and so what they have a doctor that utilizes more services, recommends for x-rays, more lab tests, more hospitalization, than another doctor for same given disease, that represents a loss to the insurance company. so i think what is happening is, they're looking at the utilization of their doctors and how they prescribe and how they order and they're eliminating those doctors which appear to them to be high-coot and high utilizers. melissa: high cost and high utilizer maybe great results. i looked at a lot of folks on the list. you see names like moffitt which is the go-to cancer center if you're sick in western florida. that is where people want to go. so they're high cost i think because they're probably provideing a superior service. before we throw the insurance carriers under the bus, the reason why they're responding to this, well, because the way we were going to pay for obamacare was by cutting medicare
5:12 pm
reimbursements. >> exactly. melissa: they saw the amount of money they're getting go down dramatically, right? >> exactly. that is why they're taking on this move. you have to suspect the reasoning is from the insurance companies standpoint they can get very similar results to the kind of organizations that you just mentioned with less cost. melissa: well, i mean before you say similar results, if it is me or if it is my family i want to go to the number one place in my area. if i'm going to die of cancer and i'm looking for someone to save me i would like to go to the number one recommended place in the area even if they're more expensive. but sound like if you're on the plans now, that is no longer an option? i mean are they, this is the trend? this is where we're going? >> i think the argument though is, is that statistics will tell you and utilization numbers will tell you they can get similar results with different doctors who have lower costs. melissa: hmmm. okay, but if you're in the boat and a lot of people are out there. >> yes.
5:13 pm
melissa: a lot of seniors had a doctor they were used to seeing all the time. >> right. melissa: they have now been told, i was reading with a lady over 90 years old, at this point in life i don't really want to change anything. now i will have to change my primary care physician as a result of this, to you it feels like i'm doing this to pay for obamacare which doesn't seem working out that well. >> exactly. melissa: it will be pretty frustrating to those folks. go ahead. >> i think it is very uncomfortable for the patient but we should understand this has happened before the affordable care act. insurance companies were trimming their provider networks for a long time to gain cost advantages. so the technique is not necessarily new. the fact that it is hooked to the affordable care act makes a lot of people uncomfortable. melissa: yeah. let me ask you before we run out of time as a veteran of the health care industry, how easy to implement what the pre did, o go for the year if your plan is canceled you can keep it s that possible?
5:14 pm
>> i would think it is extremely difficult for insurance companies, for insurance commissioners to do. ultimately it will provide real difficulties for providers as well because they are dealing with two classes of patients. one with the new program and one with the old program. it will be hard to explain the difference. many people have a very sketchy under understanding of their policies in any case. with this confusion makes it very difficult not only win insurance companies but doctors and hospitals. melissa: stan, thank you for joining us. we appreciate your time. >> thank you. melissa: from the u.s. to every corner of the globe money has been flying around the world today. first to germany. the bishop of bling has been succeeding sidestepping a court case against him for spending estimated $42 million upgrading residence. that is him smiling. among other things i bishop spent $20,000 on a bathtub. the german court agreed to close the case for a $27,000 fine.
