The House GOP has released a new version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) which makes draconian cuts to Medicaid and leaves millions to struggle with higher premiums and deductibles.
The Republican bill in the House of Representatives to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), will make it vastly more expensive for anyone who needs health care, particularly those with pre-existing conditions.
People with pre-existing conditions, low-income consumers, and others would not fare well under the continuous coverage provisions contained in both Speaker Paul Ryan’s bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and other Republican health care proposals.
A key way the Affordable Care Act (ACA) helped the United States reach a dramatic drop in the uninsured rate was by expanding the Medicaid program to low and moderate income adults. Despite this success, the House Republican plan to repeal the ACA would freeze the Medicaid expansion starting in 2020. As Arizona’s experience shows, freezing the Medicaid expansion is ending the Medicaid expansion and it’s a move that gambles with the lives of millions of Americans.
A work requirement in Medicaid is not only a bad idea, it’s unnecessary and counterproductive.
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has confirmed what we already know: The American Health Care Act (AHCA) would wreak havoc on the health care system.
The American Health Care Act would strip affordable coverage from working people, leaving millions uninsured and millions more facing drastically higher premiums and out-of-pocket costs. It would return us to a time when only the wealthy were able to afford comprehensive coverage.
See how the repeal bill currently making its way through Congress will affect lower-income families.
If you have money and don’t get sick, you’ll like the new bill House Republicans released last night that repeals the Affordable Care Act. This bill would strip coverage from millions of people and drive up consumer costs.
