Illinois Could Be Loser in Republican Healthcare Plan

  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass. speaks with reporters as Democrats criticize the Republican health care plan at the Capitol in Washington Tuesday March 14 2017

The Republican plan would reduce deficits by $337 billion over 10 years compared with keeping Obamacare.

Federal health officials cited record signups leading up to the end of open enrollment, suggesting Americans would lose coverage under the new administration. We are making fine-tuning improvements to the bill to reflect people's concerns, to reflect people's improvements.

Even worse, the American Health Care Act imposes a double whammy on older consumers who are still too young for Medicare.

Moderate Republicans have also expressed concerns about the bill, and their worries are often not the same as that of conservatives.

Some big insurers dropped popular plans, leaving those seeking individual coverage fewer options.People in about a third of US counties had to turn to a single insurer if they purchased coverage on health care exchanges set up under the Affordable Care Act.

Republicans remain deeply divided over the healthcare overhaul, which is President Donald Trump's first major legislative initiative. Over 17 million low-income seniors, children and adults with disabilities rely on Medicaid for critical health care and long-term services and supports. It has been three years and I still haven't used up my tax credit.

While a dozen GOP lawmakers have given a firm "No" to the bill in its current form, with another 11 leaning against, some lawmakers have countered by saying the CBO's numbers are wrong. According to the report, this would occur becausesome people would opt out of insurance to avoid paying the higher premiums, forcing up costs for everyone else, and pushing millions of lower income recipients out of their current plans because they wouldn't be able to afford them. Under the Republican plan to replace Obamacare, premiums would increase for approximately 454,000 Floridians between the ages of 50 to 64 who now receive Obamacare tax credits. The ACA is now failing to attract younger people at the rates needed to keep premiums for everyone down. A share of that would come from Ryan's proposal to roll back Medicaid expansion and turn the program into block grants for states. In Washington this helped add more than a half million people to the coverage rolls.

"The amount that people are going to face to get insurance, literally some of them will be priced out, and at the same time this is giving tax breaks to insurance companies, drug companies and higher-income people", he said. Our legislators seem to have no qualms about screwing old, poor, and infirm people, those most in need, under this proposed Act.

Medical insurance can't be denied for pre-existing conditions, as in Obamacare, but insurers can now raise their prices to cover expected costs.
