GOP Health Bill Changes Could Kill Protections For Those With Pre-Existing Conditions

GOP Health Bill Changes Could Kill Protections For Those With Pre-Existing Conditions

Voting was scheduled to take place sometime Thursday, but was delayed as Republicans couldn't reach an agreement on changes to the American Health Care Act.

Two questions follow: "Do you support the newly proposed American Health Care Act?" and "What do you want to happen to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)?". "The reduced purchasing power with the AHCA tax credits will put insurance coverage out of reach for millions of Americans", AMA said in its letter.

The problem is, repealing the ACA will make insurance cost more for many people-and the people who see their premiums go down will see their other health care costs go up.

If lawmakers repeal the ACA, an estimated 685,000 Virginians will lose health insurance, and the number of uninsured will rise from the current 863,00 to over 1,548,000 after repeal, according to The Center on Budget and Priorities. Speaks is anxious that the GOP plan to replace the ACA will not cover her mental health costs. Some are confident the new plan will pass. As the argument goes, Americans shouldn't have to pay for benefits they aren't using; a 60-year-old-man, for example, shouldn't have to pay for maternity care. Medicaid spending for low-income residents would be slashed. "With more than 2.2 million Floridians at-risk of losing health coverage, it is no surprise that an overwhelming majority of Floridians strongly oppose key provisions of the Republican plan".

The city of Fayetteville is celebrating the anniversary of the affordable care act today. Reducing coverage choice is the opposite of what Republicans said the AHCA would do.

Troy Congressman Warren Davidson has said he will not vote for the Affordable Care Act replacement.

Among local Republican representatives, Faso has promised to vote for the AHCA, while Stefanik remained noncommittal as of Wednesday.

GOP leaders have been working on changes meant to sweeten the bill enough to persuade numerous Republicans from Pennsylvania and across the country to vote for it.

Since then, over 20 million American have gained access to health insurance. "There would be many folks that are going to have to jump through a lot of hoops to get health care".
