San Angelo Going Backwards on the Uninsured

Texas added 393 people through PPACA's preexisting conditions coverage. The City of San Angelo dropped at least 122 previously insured people with premium increases. That wipes out 31% of the statewide gain.  Irony grows with San Angelo's approval for PPACA's Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP). 

When the city applied for federal health reform funds it stated on the application:

"Reimbursement through ERRP will allow the City 'to continue to provide the same quality of care without passing on additional costs to its participants.'"
