  •  GEHA (0+ / 0-)

    may be a private non-profit organization offering health care, but it is an excellent organization known for offering excellent health plans.

    I am not exactly sure how GEHA will play out ultimately but it definitely is capable of competing well and I strongly believe all of the other plans will work well with GEHA.

    You can send an email to OPM or GEHA and ask them how they will be approaching it. They should be able to give reasonable responses that explain how they will approach creating the non-profit option and reassure you that they know what they are doing.

    •  All insurance companies are in it to make money (0+ / 0-)

      ALL.

      Not all are slimeballs looking to rip people off, of course, but none are looking to just barely break even in order to provide a valuable service to the public. These companies are not comparable to Planned Parenthood or the ACLU.

      Only government can offer truly affordable plans. Which is why none of these plans are likely to be anywhere as affordable and extensive as a decent public option would be. I hope I'm wrong but capitalism has its own amoral logic.
