The “fishy” truth on Obamacare

We understand the Whitehouse is looking for “fishy” information being spread about Obamacare.  How about this from the Lewin Group:

  • The number of uninsured Americans would be reduced by 32.6 million;
  • Hospitals that accept Medicare and public plan reimbursements would see payments for services reduced by an average 32 percent below what private insurers pay for the same treatment
  • Likewise, payments for physician services would be reduced by an average 14 percent below what private insurers reimburse for the same treatment
  • Premiums for a public plan would be an average of 20 percent less than private insurance premiums for families, and 25 percent less for individuals.
  • “The Lewin Group [is] the gold standard of independent, health-care analysis.”  Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Bob Bennett (R-UT)  Wall Street Journal, June 26, 2007
