Six states have filed suit challenging the Obama administration over requiring states to pay a Health Insurance Providers Fee.
The administration claims the money goes to Medicaid managed care organizations and is therefore funneled right back to them. In actuality the states end up losing 54 cents to the dollar.
The Obamacare law doesn’t even clearly define that it is the states that are suppose to pay the fee.
The federal government will extract between $13 to $15 billion from the states over the next decade if this shell game isn’t stopped.
