Kellyanne Conway: Trumpcare Does Not Cut Medicaid Funding

CONCORD NH- MAY 10 Kellyanne Conway during press conference following opioid listening session at the State House in Concord NH Kellyanne Conway: Trumpcare Does Not Cut Medicaid Funding
Ellis Copeland | 28 June, 2017, 04:35

Conway went on to claim she is "very confident" that the bill will pass the Senate - a bill that will take away "draconian" Obamacare taxes on medical devices, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter medications. "We have to get serious about in-facility treatment and recovery", Conway argued. They also predicted the cuts would cost 14 million people health care coverage under Medicaid by 2026. The problem with this safeguard is that there's a lot of churn among Medicaid recipients, meaning that people lose eligibility and then regain it soon after.

Seven "trigger" states - Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Washington - built requirements into their Medicaid expansions to protect them from the higher costs of covering so many more people.

"These are not cuts to Medicaid, George", Conway said on This Week on June 25. But we don't see them as cuts. In fact, this is slowing the growth of Medicaid and allowing governors more flexibility in their states to be able to give the dollars out as they - because they are closest to the people in need.

Conway said the bill will fix several issues that Obamacare failed to. "Based on what I've seen, given the inflation rate that would be applied in the outer years to the Medicaid program, the Senate bill is going to have more impact on the Medicaid program than even the House bill".

To understand that argument requires understanding how Medicaid works and what Obamacare (technically the Affordable Care Act) did.

MARTIN: So this isn't exactly a new argument, but Diane Rowland of the Kaiser Family Foundation says there are big holes in it, mainly this one.

"Obamacare took Medicaid, which was created to help the poor, the needy, the sick, disabled, also children and pregnant women, it took it and went way above the poverty line and opened it up to many able-bodied Americans", she said. "Obamacare took Medicaid, which was created to help the poor, the needy, the sick, disabled, also children and pregnant women, it took it and went way above the poverty line to many able-bodied Americans", she said, and they "should probably find other - at least see if there are other options for them".

That's unfortunate, because finding a job with health care benefits is not as easy as Conway makes it sound. "It's the experts calling this cuts", Stephanopolous said.

The Senate plan, which remains just a draft, continues the Medicaid expansion program largely as is until 2020, before beginning to reduce federal funding for all enrollees.

In either scenario, changes are likely.
