Capito cautious of US House health care bill

Capito cautious of US House health care bill”

Sumer Cave's mother lost the ability to speak before she died. Her only option was something called a "high-risk pool".

The American Health Care Act provides individuals with pre-existing conditions these assurances. It will raise premiums for older people and sick people. Randy Hultgren said in defending his vote for the bill's House passage recently. Maybe that's why he voted to exempt Congress from its effects.

Obamacare forbids employer-sponsored policies from placing annual limits on the amount of care they will pay for. She was able to maintain coverage in this rigged system only because she was just two years away from Medicare eligibility. The ACA forbids insurers from denying coverage to people based on preexisting conditions. At its peak, the pool covered only around 30,000 Texans, a tiny fraction of the 6 million uninsured residents Texas had at that point. We cannot deprive them of life-saving treatment; losing coverage today could mean overdosing and dying tomorrow.

It wasn't easy. It took Republicans running on a promise to "repeal and replace" Obamacare for seven years to build the overwhelming pressure necessary to convince a narrow majority to vote against the desires of the health care industry. But, you would never know that, listening to scaremongers' cock-and-bull stories about the Republicans' nefarious plan to kill people with preexisting conditions by obliterating access to health care coverage. Moms and babies fare worse when pregnant women get late or no prenatal care. Sadly, any efforts to address maternal mortality will be undermined by the health repeal bill, which would cause 2.5 million Texans to lose health insurance over the next decade. A per capita cap will harm children's access to care, including services received at school. "Any changes to Medicaid, frankly, will hurt the elderly". The radical change to funding rules would threaten coverage for the other 63 million people who are signed up to Medicaid under pre-expansion eligibility rules.

West Virginians need to be kept in the system whether they're on Medicaid or not, Capito said.

The bill would effectively gut Medicaid, the program that today, thanks to expansion under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), ensures health services for 74 million Americans, including almost 1.3 million Marylanders. No, not really, as The Hill explains in a piece on the two-senator Medicaid working group, composed of Rob Portman of OH and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, that Mitch McConnell set up to reach consensus. Another factor that has limited debate about national health insurance is the role of interest groups in influencing the political process. The bill also would allow insurers to charge seriously ill customers higher rates if they let their coverage lapse. Providing health and wellness services for Virginia's children in poverty and children with disabilities ultimately enables more children to become fully educated, employable, and able to attend higher education.

This year, the Legislature could once again underfund Medicaid patient services, according to the Center for Public Policy Priorities.
