More premium hikes: blame Trump or Obama?

More premium hikes: blame Trump or Obama?

This is why I voted in favor of the American Health Care Act.

Public health researchers are still trying to understand the effects of the Affordable Care Act even as the Republican-controlled Congress and White House plot how to dismantle the law, also known as Obamacare.

Thirty-one states, including IL and the District of Columbia, participate in the Medicaid expansion program, which provides billions of federal dollars to pay for health insurance to low-income Americans. However, it is unclear how many would be able to afford continuous coverage, given that premium tax credits under the AHCA would be 36% lower on average for marketplace enrollees than under the ACA.

Toomey is playing a key role in what will happen with the Senate's health care bill, particularly the Medicaid changes.

Age Rating or Age Tax is a tax on older Americans between 50-64.

However, when the 2016 election campaign started, it was discovered that people actually liked at least parts of Obamacare and had grown to expect the government to be involved in health care insurance coverage.

Trump decries special prosecutor probing Russian Federation links
President Donald Trump says a special prosecutor for an investigation into Russia's involvement in the election hurts our country. Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican who chairs the Senate intelligence committee, called the appointment a "good decision".

Stefanik says the American Health Care Act will not take away coverage for people on Medicaid either, despite reports that the bill will cap Medicaid funding. It turns out that the AHCA was not designed as a health care plan, but rather as means to pave the way for Trump/Republican tax cuts.

McCaskill's plan would instruct the Treasury Department and the Department of Health and Human Services to set up a mechanism to give people in the states access to the national plans. If you are a Republican, you're not bothered by that because you figure that these people did something on objective to lose their insurance and probably deserve to pay more because they were weak and have a pre-existing condition in the first place.

"Insurance companies are telling us that they need to have some predictability there so that's one of the issues", Portman told reporters.

As a parent, there is absolutely nothing more important to me than ensuring families have access to quality, affordable health insurance. Under the plan, young adults may stay on their parent's insurance until the age of 26 and no one can be denied coverage because of a pre-existing health condition.

Missouri's Democratic U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill is introducing legislation to prevent counties from having no insurers on their health care exchanges. Critics argue these pools won't be able to offer almost as much coverage for individuals as the ACA did.
