"There's a moral obligation to protect people's health".
"Most important to me, this bill prohibits funds from going to the nation's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, and redirects federal funding to Community Health Centers".
Outside the wealthiest Americans, there are few winners in this bill. As a senior, I am not! Last week, my vote in favor of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was the first step of a process to do just that.
The ACA only allows annual and lifetime limits in group health plans for benefits that are not "essential health benefits".
These pools existed before Obamacare, and it worked for patients. The government helps pay premiums for those unable to afford it.
Blum and others are understating the impact of the bill that, if enacted, could drop millions from their insurance by next year. These practices were common before the ACA. That included 81 percent of Democrats and 60 percent of independents, 54 percent of men and 58 percent of women.
Older adults who buy their own insurance will be charged almost twice as much under the GOP plan. The bill also would allow insurers to charge seriously ill customers higher rates if they let their coverage lapse. It would have been much like the systems in place today in Great Britain, Canada and Australia, where one waits for months to see government-employed physicians who are stingy with government-owned medications and mired in red tape and long lines over government-financed medical procedures. Nationally, almost 10,000 people turn 65 every day - 1,000 of them right here in California, a trend expected to continue for at least the next three years.
Since its creation, Medicaid has been a flexible program capable of responding to both economic recessions and public health crises.
The first tax cut for the very rich is called the American Health Care Act, the not so hidden fine print in a bill that is also a horror story for tens of millions of Americans who would be deprived of health coverage and millions more who are threatened with bankruptcy for being sick.
Their problem is, the ACA is itself really a Republican plan, based on one adopted in MA and signed by then-Republican Governor Mitt Romney. The Senate should scrap it and work on a plan that actually improves the ACA.
"There are some other changes that I think the Senate will make to the Medicaid reforms", Condeluci says. Please Log In or Register to comment. In fact, it provides multiple protections for them.
I can't take any more of these lies.
