Insurers and about 7 million consumers could benefit from a two-year extension of funding for subsidies to reduce out-of-pocket insurance costs in the new health care bill unveiled Thursday by Senate Republicans. Uncertainty over these cost sharing subsidies have been a central concern for insurers, some of which exited some Affordable Care Act exchanges while others added about 25% to the premium rates they proposed to state insurance commissioners this week to compensate.
A relative newcomer to health insurance intends to enter or expand on the Affordable Care Act exchanges in five states at today’s filing deadline, improving the outlook for Obamacare but hardly eliminating the grave threat Trump administration-spawned uncertainty poses. Oscar Health, started in 2012, joins insurer Centene which last week announced plans to sell ACA plans in Kansas, Missouri and Nevada and to expand in six other states.
Susan Burton was sexually abused from the time she was 4 and became pregnant from a gang rape at age 14. But it was the loss of her five-year-old son — after he was hit by a police car — that sent her cycling through decades of addiction and incarceration. "Nothing good could ever have come of my life if I hadn’t been able to get therapy and overcome my addictions," says Burton.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
