This fourth teleconference call hosted by our partner Community Catalyst, discusses the Republican proposals to rely on high risk pools to cover individuals with pre-existing conditions.
Republicans' ACA Replacement Proposals Fall Short of Providing the Protections and Care People Currently Enjoy Under the Affordable Care Act
Despite public disapproval, congressional Republicans are rushing down a dangerous path that could take health coverage away from 30 million people and raise premiums for millions more.
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.
This call discussed how the Republican proposal will increase cost sharing. As part of this we spoke to health savings accounts (HSAs) – cornerstones of the Republican proposal.
Our experts on the call: Lydia Mitts Associate Director of Affordability Initiatives at Families USA and Shelley Fuld Nasso, Chief Executive Officer at National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship.

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.

Changing Medicaid to a per capita cap payment system would shift costs and risks to states and children, seniors, people with disabilities, and working families who rely on Medicaid for their health insurance and long-term care.
