201125_skoda_enyaq_sop-2-jpg-1920x1440 ( Earlier post .) The ENYAQ iV is ŠKODA’s first series-production model that was designed as an all-electric vehicle from the outset. This means our new SUV also places entirely different demands on manufacturing processes and production sequences than models with combustion engines. This is also reflected in the extensive preparation and conversion measures that we have been implementing at our main plant in Mladá Boleslav since last summer. Today’s start of production of official site the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV on the only production line in the Group for vehicles based on the MEB and MQB is a very special moment for our entire team. —Michael Oeljeklaus, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Production and Logistics ŠKODA has invested €32 million in the conversion work at Mladá Boleslav required to enable both MEB and MQB models to be produced on the same line. In future, the brand will be manufacturing up to 350 units of the ENYAQ iV here every day in a fully flexible manner alongside the OCTAVIA and KAROQ series. The car manufacturer adapted the building’s statics and designed the technologies for transporting parts to accommodate the weight of the fully battery-electric vehicles and the installed components. In addition, ŠKODA has introduced safety measures in the area of battery handling, for example, by installing thermal imaging cameras. These monitor the temperature in the workshop around the clock and trigger an alarm if any deviation is detected.

[Insurance]

That group includes people still on the low end of the income spectrum who make too much to qualify for Medicaid or government subsidies (aka, tax credits), which were two fundamentals of the ACA. The researchers analyzed income, insurance coverage and spending data from a large sample of American adults. Low-income, privately insured people had the worst results in the analysis, seeing no benefit from the ACA: They had the highest rate of catastrophic health care spending before the law passed in 2010 and continued to have it in 2017: 35% compared with 8% for people on Medicaid. Dr. Martin Gaynor , president of the American Society of Health Economists, noted that Americans with private, employer-based health care have long been "bearing the burden" of higher health care costs when employers find themselves paying higher premiums for reduced benefits, and paying lower wages to their employees as a result. "Some economists feel that higher health care costs are the primary reason for stagnating wages for many U.S. workers," Gaynor said. The study noted that, thanks to the ACA's Medicaid expansion, more than 7 million more Americans enrolled in Medicaid in the study period ( 14 million have been added to Medicaid rolls as of 2020). The public insurance has been effective in providing affordable care for eligible individuals and families. "People who have Medicaid actually had pretty low rates of catastrophic expenditure," Liu said, explaining that it has strict caps on how much people can be charged, that premiums are typically zero or very low and it has low out-of-pocket spending caps.
