Governor Cuomo Announces Plan To Protect Obamacare

The Congressional Budget Office, in its analysis, was very clear on this point: "People who are less healthy (including those with preexisting or newly acquired medical conditions) would ultimately be unable to purchase comprehensive non-group health insurance at premiums comparable to those under current law, if they could purchase it at all - despite the additional funding that would be available under (the AHCA) to help reduce premiums".

Rep. Blum's claims that "Obamacare is collapsing in Iowa" are not entirely truthful.

Cuomo is using their desire to keep reaping profits from those programs to make sure they don't cherry-pick their way out of the Obamacare market. "And the effects would be especially bad in parts of the state that are struggling-places with large proportions of people living in poverty".

Conservative ideology in America has constructed an unstable health care meritocracy where citizens must prove how much they deserve coverage based on lifestyle and
salary. He says some insurers have dropped out of the health insurance marketplace because it hasn't been financially sustainable.

The latest bill would replace the 2010 legislation's individual insurance mandate with a 30 percent premium fine for having a significant gap in coverage. Despite all the insurance companies claims of losses, the top five managed to post profits of more than $65 billion with their CEOs each making more than $10 million a year.

Diane Phillips, director of government relations for the American Cancer Society's Cancer Action Network, said lawmakers need to improve, not destroy, gains made under the Affordable Care Act. As an employer, I saw the same double-digit increases to health insurance premiums before Obamacare as I do now afterward. The ACA substantially expanded the program, extending coverage to many low-income Americans who had previously been ineligible; the AHCA attempts to undo much of that expansion. "I've been able to pay out-of-pocket, but I thought insurance would cover more of it". The objective of the proposed legislation is to create a publicly funded agency dedicated to managing our national health insurance, free of the influence of USA politicians and 50 sets of state lawmakers. Instead, too many of my colleagues are focused on partisan ideology rather than helping our communities grapple with rising health-care costs. It was not a realistic "choice" to be paying more than half their income for health insurance. "The vast majority of are low income".

The Colorado Health Institutes estimates that by 2030 about 600,000 fewer Colorado residents would be enrolled in Medicaid under the AHCA, as compared to the ACA. The measure would curb Medicaid expansion and cap the program. Iowa is having difficulty providing Medicaid services under its privatized plans. She explained that she did not offer the services that we were in need of, but someone else within her practice could accommodate this request. Currently, 19 states have chosen not to expand Medicaid eligibility.

The state's governor, Andrew Cuomo, laid down the law Monday to health insurers thinking about abandoning the state's Affordable Care Act exchanges.

Health insurance is not like other insurance. For 400,000 Virginians who now fall in the gap between the poverty-level Medicaid and insurance markets, it means the end to any hope of expanding Medicaid in Virginia. "Specialty care in particular can be a challenge for someone without insurance".

Regardless of who wins this debate, we know who the losers are: consumers of health care.
