Who Wins, Who Loses With Senate Health Care Bill — CHART

26 June 2017, 02:45 | Guillermo Sutton

McConnell released the bill after weeks of closed-door meetings searching for middle ground between conservative senators seeking an aggressive repeal of Obama's statute and centrists warning about going too far.

"Because of Medicaid expansion, that'll kill MA".

It is in need of its own health care.

Heller spoke at a news conference in Las Vegas with Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican who has also assailed the House and Senate health care bills for cutting Medicaid. The budget office analysis of the Senate measure is expected early next week. Until then, CNNMoney lays out how the plan would affect Americans. If the ACA is replaced with the AHCA or the Senate version, tens of millions of Americans, including approximately 1 million Ohioans, will lose their coverage. The American Medical Association, the American Heart Association, the American Nurses Association, the National Physicians Alliance, the AARP, Physicians for a National Health Program, the National Medical Association, Universal Health Care Action Network, and many others have all come out against the AHCA and now stand against the Senate bill.

The bill language was not amended by the Senate. Reproductive rights advocacy groups argue that this move will discourage private insurance companies from offering plans that cover abortion, even employer-sponsored plans.

The plan keeps some popular parts of Obamacare. But those mandates also made policies more costly, prompting complaints from those who don't want such a rich benefits package.

The wealthy would pay less in taxes.

"Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor", Sens.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME reiterated her opposition to language blocking federal money for Planned Parenthood, which many Republicans oppose because it provides abortions. The main reason so many insurers are pulling out of the program is that Congress and GOP-dominated state governments refuse to live up to their end of the bargain. This reinsurance fund would give federal injections to insurers to help them cover higher-cost enrollees.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was urging Democrats to post stories on social media on constituents whose health care coverage would be threatened. "The bill that's before the Senate doesn't meet that test". Under Obamacare, these subsidies are tied to the mid-range "silver"-rated plans".

Disneyland devotee visits park for 2000 days in a row
Because of his day job , he usually visits the theme park in the evenings. "It was something to do to keep things fun". But "there's nothing I would turn away from", he said.


In 2017, the average deductible for a silver plan is just under $3,600, according to Health Pocket, an insurance shopping site.

States will be allowed to seek waivers from certain Obamacare requirements.

He noted that there "isn't anything in this bill that would lower premiums", and that to say otherwise would be a "lie".

"It's going to be very hard to get me to a yes", he said.

Lower-income Americans could be left uninsured.

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican who surprised her party when she chose to expand Medicaid four years ago, is urging Congress to save the expansion, which has provided coverage to 400,000 Arizonans.

While the House bill linked the tax credits to age only, the Senate bill incorporates age, income and geographical area. The federal-state program provides health care to the poor, disabled and many nursing home patients. States don't have the resources to make up the difference, so they would likely reduce eligibility, curtail benefits or cut provider payments.

Numerous cuts directly affect women, specifically threatening medical coverage of childbirth, family planning services, reproductive cancer screening, parental leave, abortion and childcare responsibilities that disproportionately affect women who are more likely to be primary caregivers.

GOP Sens. Rob Portman of OH and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia also expressed concerns about the bill's cuts to Medicaid and drug addiction efforts. Translation? Medicaid is this country's single largest provider of reproductive health care coverage, and the deep cuts to it will hit women hard. More than half of those who buy policies on the exchanges qualify for this assistance, which can shrink their deductibles to as little as a few hundred dollars a year. "There are folks who are worth fighting for". But the subsidy would be smaller and fewer people would be eligible.

However, the Senate version of the bill would tighten the eligibility criteria starting in 2020. Those include: ambulance services, hospitalization, maternity care, prescription drug coverage and others.
