ICD-10 deadline won't be delayed, Tavenner tells HIMSS Providers, payers and claims clearinghouses can look for no relief from the looming, Oct. 1 compliance deadline for the nationwide conversion to the ICD-10 family of diagnostic and procedural codes, the head of the CMS said Thursday. But some case-by-case exemptions will be made for providers having a tough time meeting their Stage 2 meaningful-use targets, she said. “There are no more delays and the system will go live on Oct. 1,” Marilyn Tavenner said during her keynote address at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society convention in Orlando, Fla., Thursday. “Let's face it guys, we've delayed this several times and it's time to move on.” Similarly, there will be no rollback of compliance dates for Stage 2, Tavenner said, despite considerable pressure being applied to the agency to further delay compliance dates and add flexibility to its “all or nothing” requirements to meet meaningful-use measures.

I'm confused. As Obamacare heads toward the end of its 4th month, the results so far are pretty bad, and yet it seems as if Washington DC has forgotten about addressing the problems. There are approximately 47,950,700 uninsured people in America. Obamacare (ACA) was supposed to help get those people insurance. So far, only 2.1 million Americans signed up for private health insurance through the federal and state exchanges through the end of December. That is just more than 4%. 3.9 million people learned they’re eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The problem is that the Obama administration is counting this number in their total enrollments in ACA. But the Medicaid number includes people who were already on Medicaid and are just renewing, as Marilyn Tavenner, the administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services noted in a blog post last month. For the Administration to attempt to count these people as "success in Obamacare" is disingenuous or an out ...

White House Granted Itself Waiver to Launch ObamaCare Website With High Security Risk As NewsBusters has been reporting, CBS News has been one of the press outlets totally willing to expose the disaster that is the ObamaCare rollout. On Monday, Sharyl Attkisson did a fabulous report on the CBS Evening News revealing that “four days before the launch the government took an unusual step: it granted itself a waiver to launch the website with a level of uncertainty deemed as a high security risk” (video follows with transcript and commentary): SCOTT PELLEY, HOST: Today the federal healthcare website went down again for about an hour and a half. No one is sure why. It's being taken offline on purpose every morning in the wee hours from 1:00 to 5:00 for repairs. Millions are still having trouble buying insurance on it, and it turns out that even when the website works it may not be secure enough to protect privacy. Sharyl Attkisson has been digging into this. SHARYL ATTKISSON: As Healthcare.gov was being de ...
The Lying Muslim Marxist in Chief said: "The Affordable Care Act is not just a website. It's much more." This week, in congressional testimony about that failure, Marilyn Tavenner, who's responsible for overseeing the ACA technology, reiterated, "It's important to remember that the Affordable Care Act is more than just a website." Indeed, it is much more, all of which poses an ominous threat to Essential Liberty, but for the moment, all eyes are on the cascading failures of ObamaCare. The Lies and Cancelations: In a 2009 health care reform speech before a joint session of Congress, Obama said, "If you misrepresent what's in this plan, we will call you out." This pathetic narcissist won't admit his own lies and duplicitous deceptions, so we'll call him out. On 26 September, five days before the O'Care rollout, he declared, "I want to speak plainly, clearly, honestly, about what [ObamaCare] means for you and for the people you care about. Let's start with a fact. About 85% of Americans already have health i ...

Sebelius takes GOP criticism over “Obamacare” WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans blistered Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday over the nation’s controversial health care law, bluntly challenging her honesty, pushing for her resignation and demanding unsuccessfully she concede that President Barack Obama deliberately misled the public about his signature domestic program. “We’re not in it to just give you a rough time. We’re in it to try and hopefully get it right,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, at a hearing where Republicans — all of whom had voted against “Obamacare” — focused on the program’s flawed sign-up website as well as costs, policy cancellations, security concerns and other issues. During two hours in the Senate Finance Committee witness chair, Sebelius parried some thrusts and listened impassively to others. Treated more gently by Democrats than Republicans, she said at one point: “Clearly the opposition is still quite ferocious, and I’m ...

Early figures from the first and next month of Healthcare.gov 800k users were expected to register for healthcare coverage using the website set-up to access the nation’s health insurance exchange, according to new information from the U.S. Centers for Medicaid and Medicare. That averages out to just under 27 thousand people per day, a mind-boggling low prediction given the millions who flooded the site at launch on October 1.. 17k registrations can now be processed each hour, according to CMS head Marilyn Tavenner, and the pages have been altered to make usage less confusing/time-consuming for those trying to register. Official numbers, on the total number of Americans who successfully registered for health insurance on the site during October, are expected sometime next week. source
Obamacare -- As Charles Krauthammer put it: "Beyond mendacity, there is liberal paternalism, of which these forced cancellations are a classic case. We canceled your plan, explained presidential spokesman Jay Carney, because it was substandard. We have a better idea. Translation: Sure, you freely chose the policy, paid for the policy, renewed the policy, liked the policy. But you’re too primitive to know what you need. We do. Your policy is hereby canceled. Because what you really need is what our experts have determined must be in every plan. So a couple in their 60s must buy maternity care. A teetotaler must buy substance abuse treatment. And a healthy 28-year-old with perfectly appropriate catastrophic insurance must pay for bells and whistles for which he has no use." But don’t worry. At least your personal information is secure on HealthCare.gov since it’s being protected by “stringent security standards,” according to Marilyn Tavenner. Oh wait… that’s not true either."

.had major questions for Medicare Chief Marilyn Tavenner yesterday. Her answers may astound you:
Marilyn Tavenner refuses to release figures on the number of ObamaCare enrollments. But she does say it is "projected" to reach 800,000 by the end of November. Well isn't that quaint. Millions of Americans have been sent cancelation notices that they well have no coverage by January 1st yet Marilyn hopes to have a fraction of that enrolled by December 1st. I guess the remaining Millions will do it over their holiday vacations for Christmas! So how many won't have coverage by January 1st?! We were told millions would receive affordable healthcare and yet most who have signed up have signed up for Medicare!! Just more burden on a busted system. And millions who were happy with their plan are forced out of it and may have no plane come January 1st! If this were a corporation it would be Federal Fraud people would go to jail. Instead POTUS flys to Texas, Marilyn refuses to provide numbers and supporters act surprised that it's a train wreck!

SC man's case prompts security concerns in DC COLUMBIA, S.C. A South Carolina man says he wants his personal information removed from the federal health care marketplace after it inadvertently went to a man in North Carolina trying to log onto the government website. Columbia attorney Thomas Dougall said Tuesday federal officials have yet to contact him about the security breach. His case prompted questions in Washington about the security of the website that's been riddled with technical problems since its Oct. 1 launch. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner told a Senate committee that Dougall's issue was fixed Monday with a software update. But Dougall says he still doesn't know the extent of the breach, and he wants his data deleted. Dougall says he emailed the administration after learning last Friday that a North Carolina resident received his information.
WASHINGTON - (AP) -- President Barack Obama claimed "full responsibility" Wednesday for fixing his administration's much-maligned health insurance website as a new concern surfaced: a government memo pointing to security worries, laid out just days before the launch. On Capitol Hill, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius apologized to frustrated people trying to sign up, declaring that she is accountable for the failures but also defending the historic health care overhaul. The website sign-up problems will be fixed by Nov. 30, she said, and the gaining of health insurance will make a positive difference in the lives of millions of Americans. Obama underscored the administration's unhappiness with the problems so far: "There's no excuse for it," he said during a Boston speech to promote his signature domestic policy achievement. "And I take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed ASAP." The website HealthCare.gov was still experiencing outages as Sebelius faced a new range of que ...

Medicaid preference could strap states under Obamacare By Washington Times (DC) November 5, 2013 House Republicans suspect the White House has more Obamacare data than it is letting on, sparking a tug of war that is playing out amid fears that Medicaid enrollment could far outpace requests for private insurance under President Obama's program. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, Michigan Republican, sent a stern letter Friday to Marilyn Tavenner, the federal official closest to the health care law's implementation, threatening to subpoena the records from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. "The committee is not prepared to wait until 'around mid-November' for the administration's scrubbed and spun numbers," Mr. Camp wrote. The White House has said it will release the figures on a monthly basis, beginning in mid-November, and that it takes time to gather reliable data from the federal exchange system and state-run markets. But Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican and chai ...

The links in the article did not copy. Sorry!!! A Promise He Could Not Keep Dear Friends, By now, we all know that the launch of Obamacare’s online insurance exchanges has been an unmitigated disaster, with reports indicating that as few as six people signed up for health coverage on the first day of open enrollment. But for the more than two million Americans being booted from their existing health plans under Obamacare, their troubles span far beyond a flawed website. You may remember President Obama’s promise to Americans in June 2009 that, “If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period.” Unfortunately, Americans from coast to coast are quickly finding this to be untrue, including the thousands of Tennesseans who received affordable health coverage through CoverTN. Come January, this program will be dissolved as a result of Obamacare, forcing customers to choose between buying an insurance plan on a website that simply does not work, or paying a fine ...

Medicare Reimburses the Deceased and the Illegal Jeannie DeAngelis The Washington Times headline reads: "Medicare paid millions to dead patients, illegal immigrants, probe finds." While this subject has been broached before, it is imperative that it continue to be stressed. Why? Because the government reimbursing dead people and providing drug subsidies to illegal immigrants underscores the ineptitude of a bureaucracy that, despite its obvious inefficiency, is determined to make decisions that impact life and death. Health and Human Services, the department headed up by Kathleen 'Whatever' Sebelius, in a report issued by its own inspector general revealed that in 2011 Medicare paid out $23 million for dead patients and from 2009 to 2011 subsidized the cost of drug benefits for illegal aliens to the tune of $29 million. Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), also a physician, said the report was troubling because Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) had been warned there were problems five years earlier .. ...

HEALTH POLICY CANCELLATIONS: NEW BLOW FOR ADMINISTRATION WASHINGTON (AP) — Move over, website woes. Lawmakers confronted the Obama administration Tuesday with a difficult new health care problem — a wave of cancellation notices hitting small businesses and individuals who buy their own insurance. At the same time, the federal official closest to the website apologized for its dysfunction in new sign-ups and asserted things are getting better by the day. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner said it's not the administration but insurers who are responsible for cancellation letters now reaching many of the estimated 14 million people who buy individual policies. And, officials said, people who get cancellation notices will be able to find better replacement plans, in some cases for less. The Associated Press, citing the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, reported in May that many carriers would opt to cancel policies this fall and issue new ones. Administratively that was seen as easier than cha ...

The annual Medicare trustees' report [pdf] has been released, and it reaffirms the various reports we've seen over the last year of health care spending slowing down. The viability of Medicare has been extended by two years, projected to remain fully solvent until 2026; last year’s projection was 2024. The extension is attributable to Obamacare, says the Medicare chief. “The Medicare Hospital Insurance trust fund is projected to be solvent for longer, which is good news for beneficiaries,” said Marilyn Tavenner, who runs the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. “Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, we are taking important steps to improve the delivery of care for seniors with Medicare.” [...] “These reforms aim to reduce spending while improving the quality of care, and are an important down payment on solving Medicare’s long term financial issues,” Tavenner said.

WASHINGTON — Medicare premiums are going up $5 a month in 2013, the government said Friday. It's less than expected, but still enough to eat up about one-fourth of a typical retiree's cost-of-living raise next year. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner said the new "Part B" premium for outpatient care will be $104.90 a month. In most cases, it's deducted directly from a beneficiary's monthly Social Security check. Currently the premium is $99.90 a month. Earlier this year, the government projected an increase of as much as $9 for 2013, but health care inflation has remained modest. Still, advocates for the elderly didn't see much to cheer about, particularly since Medicare cuts are on the table in budget negotiations between President Barack Obama and Republicans in Congress. Obama has promised to protect beneficiaries, but even his plan calls for upper-income retirees to pay more. "These increases aren't as big as projected, but they are still increases," said Joe Baker, president of the Medicare Rights Cen ...
