Trump's healthcare "vision" is nothing. Executive Orders listing wishes but nothing else

Big surprise huh? I just got home and was watching Trump run his mouth in North Carolina.
He seems to think there will suddenly be a whole bunch of plan options just appearing out of nowhere. Here are a few articles on this.

Trump's health care 'vision' punts on two major issues
https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/24/politics/trump-health-care-pre-existing-conditions/index.html

The first executive order will state that it's US policy that people who suffer from pre-existing conditions will be protected, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said in a call with reporters.

The second executive order directs Congress to pass legislation to address surprise medical billing by the end of the year, and if lawmakers don't achieve this, Azar will seek to do so via executive or regulatory action.

Patients are often hit with surprise medical bills when they receive emergency care from an out-of-network provider that they did not choose. Roughly 1-in-6 emergency room visits or in-hospital stays generated at least one out-of-network bill in 2017, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Efforts to address the issue in Congress have been bogged down amid a lobbying and advertising blitz by the health care industry. Insurers favor the government setting a benchmark rate, but hospitals and other providers -- often backed by private equity firms -- strongly support resolving the matter through arbitration.

President Trump Finally Laid Out His Healthcare Plan. It Doesn’t Do Anything.

Both key planks of Trump’s healthcare vision Thursday essentially boil down to directing Congress — which has repeatedly failed to repeal Obamacare or offer a consensus replacement plan — to figure it out.

THE EMMY's live is unique and funny but...

Sources: Big Ten to announce October return to college football


The Big Ten is expected to announce on Wednesday a return to football in October, sources confirmed to ESPN.

The news was first reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Big Ten on Aug. 11 postponed all fall sports seasons, including football, because of concerns about the pandemic. The league's presidents and chancellors voted 11-3 to postpone, with only Nebraska, Ohio State and Iowa electing to proceed. A vote to play a fall season would require at least 60% of the presidents and chancellors (nine or more).

You may not think this is politics but it is. Football is BIG MEDICINE in Ohio Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania and even Minnesota. Trump hung his hat on this just last week. He will declare a big victory if they vote to return to football —— BTW by all accounts it went pretty well yesterday for everyone else.

Sources: Big Ten revote on when to start football season could take place Sunday

The Big Ten's council of presidents and chancellors will meet Sunday to review the latest medical information and possibly vote again on when the fall football season can begin, sources told ESPN.

The medical subcommittee, co-chaired by Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour and Ohio State lead team physician Dr. Jim Borchers, will present the presidents with at least four rapid response antigen tests that could allow Big Ten teams to test daily for the coronavirus and significantly decrease the amount of necessary contact tracing. The latest information about myocarditis and its occurrence in athletes who test positive for COVID-19 also is expected to be shared, sources said.

"It's light-years different than it was five weeks ago," a conference source told ESPN on Friday.

The medical subcommittee includes four Big Ten athletic directors -- Michigan's Warde Manuel, Michigan State's Bill Beekman, Minnesota's Mark Coyle and Maryland's Damon Evans -- as well as team doctors and other medical experts from Illinois, Purdue, Michigan, Nebraska, Northwestern, Indiana and Maryland.
