AHCA Opponents Say Older Kentukcians Will Pay More For Healthcare

19 May 2017, 10:49 | Darin Griffith

The study from the consulting firm Avalere finds that the cuts to coverage for non-disabled children would come as a result of a new cap on Medicaid payments that the bill would impose, known as a per capita cap.

Medicaid spending caps as proposed under the AHCA would eliminate open-ended federal funding, which now guarantees payment of 61 percent of Florida's program costs.

According to Dr. Oliver Fein, chair of the New York Chapter of Physicians for a National Health Plan, it would provide quality health care with no copays or deductibles. The Medicaid expansion is overloading states, which, in order to keep up, will have to increase taxes or increase out-of-pocket expenses to patients.

For their part, Democrats have refused to engage in talks with Republicans unless the GOP drops its repeal mantra and agrees to work toward adjustments in Obama's statute. Their plan would also maintain Medicaid expansion while limiting spending for certain populations. Consider what legislation, like Medicare for all with universal coverage, will mean for public health in our country.

The MacArthur Amendment of the AHCA allows states to apply for a waiver on the community rating.

While the so-called "repeal-and-replace" bill would kill numerous ACA's taxes (except the Cadillac Tax), much of the popular health-related provisions of Obamacare would remain intact.

The Kaiser Family Foundation's Larry Levitt, Karen Pollitz and colleagues used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to calculate how many people had some sort of pre-existing condition that was used in the past by health insurance companies to refuse coverage or to charge much higher premiums.

Simpson said he wants to see reforms, such as making health-insurance premiums tax-deductible for individuals. Under this new plan, states can get a waiver that would allow insurers to set prices based on how healthy a person is.

But it's not enough, said two healthcare experts.

"As a effect in high risk pools, insurance becomes far too expensive for those who need it", said Cheung, who represent hospitals, medical groups and physicians. And they, barely, if at all, had time to even read the bill since they received it only the night before the vote.

Their medical bills were paid through a state nonprofit entity funded by the insurance premiums paid by consumers within the high-risk pool and a $4-a-month surcharge on all policyholders in the state. The more claims there are, the higher the rates go.
