Bellyaches on ACA

After Indiana lawmakers listened to a presentation on the state's fulfillment of the federal health care law, complaints came from both sides of the aisle.

New Albany Republican Rep. Ed Clere accused Gov. Mike Pence's administration of using misleading cost comparisons.

Clere said the Indiana Department of Insurance overstated estimates to suggest that marketplace health insurance policies will increase by 72 percent next year by comparing high-deductible policies with few benefits to Affordable Care Act plans that require coverage for doctor visits, maternal care, prescription drugs and mental health, among other services.

Bloomington Democrat Mark Stoops criticized the governor's decision not to expand Medicaid coverage, noting that residents in other states would qualify for coverage while tens of thousands of Hoosiers will fall in a gap: earning too much to qualify for Medicaid but too little to buy subsidized private coverage.
