California Wants to Let Illegal Immigrants Enroll in Obamacare

From the Washington Examiner:
Calif. advances bill to let illegal immigrants buy Obamacare A bill that would allow illegal immigrants to buy Obamacare plans with their own money is headed to the desk of California Gov. Jerry Brown, after the state Senate passed the measure Thursday. 
While President Obama’s healthcare law bans illegal immigrants from purchasing Obamacare plans, California is trying to partially change that through what’s known as a 1332 waiver. 
If Brown signs the new measure into law, it would allow the state to petition the federal government to let it allow illegal immigrants to buy plans through Covered California, although they couldn’t get federal subsidies. 
If California obtains the waiver, it would become the first state to expand the Affordable Care Act to illegal immigrants. 
“Covered California should be able to live up to its name and serve all Californians, regardless of immigration status,” said Anthony Wright, director of the consumer advocacy group Health Access California. 
“People who have different viewpoints on immigration policy can come together in recognition that it is everyone’s interest to connect as many Californians with coverage, and prevent the health and financial issues for not just uninsured families but the community as a whole.”

Illegals should be given all kinds of benefits: housing subsidies, Medicaid, Obamacare, food stamps, give them everything. That way, California will become a true, broke Mexican state and be returned with full debt to the open arms of the Mexican government/cartels. They deserve each other.

Rot in hell!

Oops, sorry Pastorius. I was not aware of that. You sound too rational to be a Californian ... Just kidding!

Subsidized to what extent?

Subsidy = taxpayer funded.

I've learned that, as of January, 2016, insureds have to pay 1/2 of the policy's deductible up front for any non-emergency medical services or else the services will not be rendered.

For example, the other day, because I have not met the deductible for this year, I had to pay $360 to get the $720 abdomen/pelvis CT scan done.

This paying of 1/2 up front is the norm for any medical services which are not emergency in nature.

The Bronze Plan of Obamacare has a deductible of $6500 for all medical services which are not prescriptions. How's that deductible working for those with subsidized policies? Those subsidized insureds (low income for the most part) cannot afford medical treatment unless they go to the ER and have an actual medical emergency. Meanwhile, hospitals are having one helluva time funding the emergency departments.

That's ok, Anonymous. No offense taken. Besides if Californians are irrational, then I fit right in. I'm just a irrational Conservative.

Sadly, there are many of us in California, we just don't have any power, and are constantly called "racist, homophobic, fascist, Islamophobic", etc.
