House Republicans' Obamacare Replacement Plan Calls for MAJOR Changes

Rand Paul and House Freedom Caucus

"In general this is going to result in fewer people covered nationwide", Caroline Pearson, a senior vice president for the health care consulting group Avalere, told NPR. Presidents Day is on Monday and the House returns on February 27.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and other House leaders planned to discuss details of their plans with lawmakers Thursday and gauge their receptiveness.

Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Mich.) told NPR the outline is, so far, "guideposts and a road map". "You might not be able to get coverage at all, especially if you're an older worker", said Rep. Richard Neal, House Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member from MA.

While a significant part of the document reiterates why the GOP needs to replace Obamacare, it does law out some elements of a replacement such as tax credits to buy insurance and expand health savings accounts.

Additionally, the legislation allows individuals and small businesses to band together through membership in an Association Health Plan to buy health insurance. Republicans are unified on repeal but there's been no solidarity on a replacement.

The meeting Thursday centered on "principles and goals on where we're going in patient-centered care", said House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-La., after the meeting.

"A move to end federal cost sharing relative to Medicaid expansion could quite literally devastate our state from a financial perspective or force us to make impossible decisions about which Pennsylvanians are entitled to quality health care", Wolf said. Price, when he was a congressman, proposed taxing higher-cost employer-sponsored health insurance plans.

One dead, 20 injured as train derails in Belgium
The train came off the tracks close to Brussels, and a Belgian train official confirmed that several people have been injured. Police officers and officials stand next to a train after it derailed in Kessel-Lo, Leuven, on February 18, 2017.

Like the Better Way proposal, this new paper doesn't include specifics, such as the value of those tax credits, or the actual formula for calculating Medicaid funds.

She says it's unlikely they'll be as generous as the Obamacare subsidies. "This is not merely a fiscal issue, but an issue that jeopardizes the ability of federal and state government to take care of the most vulnerable who actually rely on the program". If the policy goes into effect in 2017, for example, the maximum contribution limit would increase to $6,550 for individuals and $13,100 for families.

The health secretary, Tom Price, until last week a member of the House himself, addressed the lawmakers and told them Donald Trump would give them strong backing during the effort.

"California bill calls for state-run health care system": "Sen". The tax credit would be based on a person's age, not their income, unlike in the Affordable Care Act, according to a PowerPoint presentation given to House members. Paul and Sanford said these pooling mechanisms will decrease costs for consumers.

"I don't see any scenario where 31 states that expanded end up getting monies for their populations and the 19 states that didn't expand, don't", Sen.

"I think a lot of my Republican colleagues are feeling uncomfortable about trying to repeal something when they know they don't know exactly how they would replace it", said Peters. "We've begun preparing to repeal and replace Obamacare", the president said.
