Must-Know Features of the Latest Obamacare Repeal Package

Sandy Vega | 24 May, 2017, 07:12

This week: Congress grapples with Comey fallout Schumer: Block new Federal Bureau of Investigation director until special prosecutor on Russian Federation is appointed MORE (D-N.Y.), the American Medical Association (AMA) pushed back against any "significant changes" to the Affordable Care Act or Medicaid programs.

As the American Health Care Act (AHCA) works its way through Congress, it will nearly certainly undergo revisions in order to come up with enough votes to pass in the Senate.

The U.S. Senate has a "tremendous opportunity" to take health care reform in a better direction than the U.S. House has, Congressman Walter Jones, R-N.C. said last week.

"I've said for a long time, you know, you're never going to control the cost of health care to a large degree until you get people to be consumers of health care again", said Simpson, who worked as a dentist and remembers patients calling around for price quotes before choosing a dentist. Medicaid expansion under Obamacare has provided insurance coverage to more than a quarter-million Maryland residents. She said those people would be dramatically impacted by changes proposed in the AHCA.

"I'm not interested in just dropping them off a cliff and saying "Good luck - that was a nice three years".

West Virginians need to be kept in the system whether they're on Medicaid or not, Capito said. Korbulic said without that mandate, younger, healthier people are more likely to drop out of the exchange.

Alas, the two parties in Washington are more concerned about wins and losses and political brownie points to bother putting their heads together in an effort to make health care legislation that would have broad appeal among Americans. Federal law requires school districts to provide services to medically fragile and special needs students, so the districts would be on the hook with or without the Medicaid funding. These pollutants cause a myriad of health conditions, which lead to more doctor visits, which means that it is essential that Ms. Stefanik's constituents have readily accessible health care.

While the fallout over President Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey consumes the news cycle, it has not had an impact on Republicans' health care talks.

The American Health Care Act (Trumpcare) recently approved by the Republican-controlled House is a truly awful bill. "What states decide to do may ultimately have the greatest effect on how many people with pre-existing conditions face potentially unaffordable insurance premiums".

Korbulic pointed out that the bill is a draft at this point and many things could change as it makes its way through the Senate.
