GOP ready to try pushing new health bill through Senate

14 Juillet 2017

In its analysis of the first version of the Senate healthcare bill, the CBO found that 22 million Americans would lose health insurance coverage by 2026. The "score" is a budget analysis of a piece of legislation.

Under the bill, states with premiums that are at least 75 percent of the national average would qualify to keep one percent of the legislation's long-term insurance stability fund. Alaska is the only state with premiums that high.

Are you surprised to learn that Senate Republicans' new draft of the healthcare replacement bill is very bad?

"Well, I don't even want to talk about it", Trump said. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who has repeatedly called for a more comprehensive repeal of Obamacare. Mike Lee (R-UT), which would allow insurance companies to sell lower-cost, lower-coverage insurance plans, as long as they sell regular policies that follow the requirements of the Obama health law. A version is expected to be included, according to CNN. Non-compliant plans would benefit those who are not sick. Dental benefits for adults are optional.

Likewise, the proposal allows states to apply for exemptions in the case of improving community services for the elderly, blind or disabled, and for public health emergencies. This includes $45 billion for fighting drug addiction. The previous version only offered $2 billion.

"AARP also remains alarmed at the Senate bill's drastic Medicaid cuts".

Both would apply to those making over $200,000 per year as an individual, or $250,000 for couples who file joint returns. "South Carolina, on the other hand, would likely go in a different direction and use the federal funding to make private health care more affordable and available". Now health savings accounts can only be used to pay out-of-pocket costs not covered by insurance, such as deductibles and copayments for medical services.

Though the cuts to Medicaid that have concerned moderates are left largely intact in the revised bill, the new version does offer some Medicaid funding flexibility for states in the event of a public health crisis.
