Bill Sponsorship: Public Option Deficit Reduction Act
Source: H.R.191
Amends the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act [PPACA, known as ObamaCare] to require Exchanges to offer a public health insurance option that ensures choice, competition, and stability of affordable, high-quality coverage throughout the United States. Declares that the primary responsibility is to create a low-cost plan without compromising quality or access to care. Sets forth provisions related to the establishment and governance of the public health insurance option, including that such plan:
  1. may be made available only through Exchanges;
  2. must comply with requirements applicable to other health benefits plans offered through such Exchanges; and
  3. must offer bronze, silver, and gold plan levels.
    Requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to:
  1. establish an office of the ombudsman for the public health insurance option;
  2. collect such data as may be required to establish premiums and payment rates;
  3. establish geographically adjusted premiums at a level sufficient to fully finance the costs of the health benefits provided and administrative costs related to the operation of the plan; and
  4. establish payment rates and provide for greater payment rates for the first three years.
Requires repayment of start-up costs for the public health insurance option. Authorizes the Secretary to utilize innovative payment mechanisms and policies to determine payments for items and services under the public health insurance option.
