ObamaCare Architect: GOP Health Care Bill is Inadequately Funded

How the Health Care Habits of Millennials Are Changing the Industry

A third reason America lacks universal health coverage and that House Republicans struggled to pass their plan even in a very conservative House chamber is that America's political institutions make it hard for massive entitlement programs to be enacted. For example, a woman who had breast cancer could be charged a premium surcharge of more than $28,000 per year for coverage, and a woman who was previously pregnant could face an additional surcharge of more than $17,000 per year for coverage.

The House bill actually enhances federal funding for the 31 states and the District of Columbia that chose to expand its Medicaid program.

Linton, who also served on the Kenai Peninsula Borough's Healthcare Task Force in 2015 and 2016, advocates for a national single-payer system, which he said would at least simplify the now complex health care insurance system.

Moore said the projections don't apply to employer-provided plans, which is where most people get their health coverage. For women who rely on Medicaid - of which almost 31,000 men and women in my district do - this bill would leave struggling families and single mothers without any options and access to care because it would "defund" Planned Parenthood.

ObamaCare architect Dr. Zeke Emanuel on Friday discussed why the GOP health care bill is doomed to fail, and what would really help lower health care premiums. Portman, supposedly the bulldog protecting Medicaid, clearly cares more about the Medicaid expansion than the per capita cap.

They also voiced their support for the 35 hour work week and supporting civil servants and continuing the basic work of the modern state. We're working to make this a reality.

Amber Alert Issued for 8-Month-Old Girl, Mother in Hampton, Virginia

"The thing that's not understood is the majority of Medicaid is spent on the elderly", he said. Her voice was loud and clear. With her "no" vote she pointed to the harm it would cause vulnerable children. "This is important to every single American that lives in this country, whether you need it or not". Besides those receiving Medicare, Tricare and Indian Health Services benefits, Medicaid in Alaska is in part paid for by the federal government and 90 percent of those who purchase individual plans from Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield through the Affordable Care Act marketplace receive federal subsidies, according to a research summary published by ISER in April 2017.

"Older people, yes, they tend to have more medical needs, but they tend to make more money", Moore said.

The problem with all that, Jones said, is it's not going to be enough money.

Congressional analysts estimate that 24 million more Americans would be uninsured by 2026, including 14 million by next year.

Carey Jo Grace, an organizer with the West Virginia Healthy Kids and Families Coalition, was another speaker. People who can't afford care go bankrupt or delay care.

"I put off getting my gallbladder removed until I couldn't walk across the room", she said. But they proved with true determination and grit, it can be done. "I have two children, and we're not having any more". She now gets coverage through her husband's insurance provider, because her employer does not provide it. So the fiscal growth of Alaska's health care industry is coming entirely from the pockets of insurers and companies based here, Guettabi said.
