Each of us must care about proposed medicaid cuts

07 Juillet 2017

The BCRA is based on the House version, American Health Care Act (AHCA), which is flawed legislation as it would result in the loss of coverage for millions of now insured; it rolls back consumer protections and insurance reforms; it destroys the Medicaid program, and it separates those with health insurance from primary care physicians through higher deductibles.

The Senate bill never made it to the floor but it will soon. It would undercut the health care safety net, almost doubling the uninsured rate, while delivering a massive tax cut for corporations and the wealthy.

In any case, even if the rest of the bill is disappointing, kicking 15 million people off Medicaid and saving $772 billion apparently makes the whole thing worth it. The Congressional Budget Office estimates this would lead to 15 million fewer Medicaid enrollees and 7 million fewer in the individual market in the next decade.

Will Smith's Gemini Man gets release date
Paramount Pictures are behind the production with Jerry Bruckheimer, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger producing. Filmmaker Ang Lees science-fiction actioner " Gemini Man ", starring Will Smith , will hit the screens on October 4, 2019.

"If my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to the private health insurance market must occur", McConnell said. For the past two months, the Senate has discussed legislation of the American Health Care Act in a committee of 13 members. Making maters worse, people who come into the system through the emergency room after neglecting their chronic conditions often rack up the largest bills.

The State Director for Rescare Alaska, Allison Lee, says the problem with the proposed bill is it will force states to look at their budgets and see where they can shrink their Medicaid dollars - and the first to go may be home and community based services.

In his first public comments in almost a week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Thursday indicated that passing the GOP's health care bill remains a daunting prospect for a Republican conference so far unable to agree on key details. Almost half of Oklahoma's Medicaid spending goes to the 1 in 6 members who are aged, blind, or have a disability. In order to be passed on to the House the Senate Bill needs support from at least 50 of the 52 U.S. Senators. Call your US senators and ask them to vote against this bill before it is too late. These Americans are some of the most vulnerable in our country. Cruz's plan allows a non-compliant health care plan - essentially a catastrophic plan - to be offered alongside a robust Obamacare plan that includes minimum coverage requirements. But it does provide a big tax cut for the upper 1% of American earners.
