Senate moderates hold bipartisan health care talks

Di Ieso

A few disturbing features are Medicaid reductions, higher premiums for millions of older people not yet Medicare eligible, and those with pre-existing health conditions might be charged higher premiums or denied coverage.

The measure also would cut nearly $840 billion from Medicaid, the federal-state health care program for the poor, disabled and elderly. The approval rating of the bill remains mostly unchanged from last week, with 38 percent approving of it and 45 percent disapproving, up 1 percent from last week.

"This measure ensures that New Yorkers' health stays a priority and is protected regardless of the current uncertainty within the federal healthcare conversation.

The AHCA allocates $8 billion over five years to states with community rating waivers, resources that can be used to help reduce premiums or pay out-of-pocket medical expenses for people rated based on their health status.

Gallup's survey indicates that more Americans are concerned about the healthcare system now than at any other time since November 2013, when the figure was 19 percent amid the rollout of former President Barack Obama's ACA, or Obamacare. According to a spokesman for the DC Health Benefit Exchange, lawmakers and their staffs select from 57 plans offered by four health insurance companies. They are scrambling to find solutions, and congressional action returning authority to the states is the solution.

"I think you're looking at a scenario where consumers are going to have less affordable access, and so that will likely mean they're going to be priced out of the market", Korbulic said. Protesters, including a health care provider and an organ donor, said Idahoans would lose coverage without the ACA.

"Much of the focus so far has been on pre-existing conditions, because it's easier to understand than a program for the low income", said Diane Rowland, executive vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation.
