While Republicans have said they would repeal the law creating and governing the insurance exchanges, each of which is run by state agencies, no solid plan to replace the ACA has been announced.

Hospitals, insurers and actuaries -bean-counters who make long-range economic estimates - have weighed in, and more interest groups are expected to make their views known soon. Unless he changes course now, we may see a lot of red caps at funerals for people who lost their insurance and died much too soon.

Without help, critical care will remain out of their reach due to cost, with far-reaching consequences to their health and economic security.

Many people often think that the whole process of getting free quotes from several insurance companies, comparing them or even comparing different private and government health insurance programs will be time-consuming and rigorous. But "repeal and delay" would cause immediate chaos in the individual insurance market.

And the anti-cancer network is concerned that protection for people with pre-existing health conditions might be undermined or lost.

Under the ACA, most Americans are required to have some form of health coverage of pay a tax penalty, which in 2017 will be as high as 2.5 percent of adjusted household income.

The numbers will likely rise.

Lee Health, a tax-exempt public entity, has never taken an official position on the Affordable Care Act, but it has claimed the law has noticeably reduced the ranks of the uninsured it treats.

But Obamacare faces an uncertain political future with the election of Trump and a Republican-controlled Congress intent on repealing Obamacare.

I had a hold of him and he just kinda looked up at me and he says 'Santa, can you help me?' That's when he passed. It was a nurse I know who works at the hospital". "Schmitt-Matzen said the boy asked, "'They say I'm gonna die.

The basic plan under GOP consideration involves repealing the health law next year, but delaying the effective date to allow Congress time to pass a replacement.

"I know our health care system isn't ideal, we still have a lot of work to do to make it more affordable for working families and to hold insurance and drug companies accountable", Tester, D-Mont., said.

One of Republicans' biggest objections to the ACA is the influence of big government over the people. Don't play politics. Play policy. "We had an office pool and no one picked a number that high", he said.

"You're going to have a radical two-tiered health system in America ... where basically the exchanges are for poor people", he said.

"Moderate Republicans are anxious about the consequences", he said.

New Jerseyans have signed up for Obamacare at a faster pace than a year ago despite concerns that the law will be repealed by the incoming administration, federal officials said Wednesday.

"The process of buying individual health insurance plan which is ideally suited for buyer's budget and coverage requirements is not easy".

The report was clearly aimed at countering claims that Obamacare was making health care costs unaffordable, and that repealing the law would ease the burden on working families.

That would be increase over the 12.7 million who initially signed up for 2016 coverage past year, although still short of the 15 million that congressional scorekeepers predicted just a few months ago.
