House committee approves health care proposal

Medicaid expansion Harvard economist

They plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which has done so much good for West Virginia.

How about the 1,100 Chevrolet workers who just lost their jobs, not because the jobs went to Mexico but because the Chevy Cruze is not selling well - how will they like it when their health premiums go up $6,000 this year and more in the future? "Some people would still come to the clinic on a sliding charge and pay what they can, but some will stop going to the doctor, or go to emergency rooms - and if that happens everyone loses". The states could then decide whether to offer that to residents, to adopt another coverage plan, or to let the market cover everything. By AARP's estimate, a 64-year-old making $15,000 would pay $8,400 more for coverage under the Ryan bill.

The bill is now facing criticism from both sides of the aisle, and it's still unclear how the bill might change before it lands on the President's desk.

Under the ACA, also called Obamacare, the uninsured rate in the Bluegrass State dropped from about 17 percent to about 7 percent.

But numerous questions were emotionally charged, with citizens asking about plans to defund Planned Parenthood and the impact it will have on women's services, concerns over premium hikes for older Americans and why Price endorses a plan that would put an end to Medicaid expansion when so many people rely on Medicaid benefits.

Last week, House Republicans unveiled their proposal to replace the ACA, also known as Obamacare.

The legislation also reduces tax credits that help older Americans with low and moderate incomes pay for their health care premiums.

But the AHCA proposes flat tax credits based on age and income.

"I think that we need to move to the free market in order to get these costs down for our citizens", he said. Robin Shank of Glasgow is one of them. And it would end the guarantee of coverage for people who receive care in nursing homes and those whose families depend on Medicaid to help seniors and people with disabilities live independently in their homes.

"I believe the law will continue to change a lot over the next few years", he said.

Although we can not support the AHCA, we are pleased that it does not repeal measures like pre-existing conditions, bans on annual/lifetime coverage limits and allowing parents to keep children on their policy until age 26.

The cut in government aid would put thousands in an "untenable situation", forcing many people in their 50s and 60s to go without coverage, AARP Florida State Director Jeff Johnson said Friday.

"Florida, as everybody knows, has a pretty gray population and the highest percentage of people 65 and older of any state in the nation", Bruns said.
