Most Capitol Hill staffers and lawmakers are looking at the possibility of increased health insurance costs next year. That's because of a provision in the reform law that says they are only eligible for coverage through the exchange. Currently, lawmakers and their staff can select from a number of plans and the government subsidizes nearly 75 percent of their premiums, but the reform law did not apply those same subsidies to exchange coverage. "Fixing this issue is a top priority," an unnamed aide to a Democratic leader told the Capitol Hill publication Politico. But it's politically difficult, since the idea was to make Congress live under the law it created. However, if the law isn't amended, the result could be a brain drain, since veteran staffers – and a number of lawmakers as well –may elect to leave.
