Charlie Dent 'concerned' by Senate health care bill

After a series of secretive meetings, Republican lawmakers in the Senate have finally revealed their plan to repeal and replace huge parts of the Affordable Care Act.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said that President Donald Trump "is pleased to see the process moving forward swiftly in Congress, and he looks forward to seeing a finalised bill on his desk".

The federal government's share of funding for Medicaid, which is jointly run with individual states, would fall over the course of seven years to end up at around 57 percent of the cost of that program, which offers health coverage to the poor.

Heller expressed particular concerns about the bill's impact on Medicaid, and especially on states, such as Nevada, that expanded Medicaid under Obamacare. He supports the expansion of health savings accounts and giving Americans more freedom in choosing plans that are right for them.

While Senators have been working on the legislation since the AHCA passed the House, Democrats including Menendez have taken issue with the "secretive" nature by which the bill was drafted. "The program has been a great success and a model for other states to follow". It would erase taxes on higher earners and the medical industry that helped Obama's law expand coverage by roughly 20 million Americans.

ACA: Insurers required to cover essential health benefits, such as hospital visits and mental health care. It would deny coverage to many people with pre-existing conditions.

This legislation is full of mixed messages.

Dan Gorenstein: There are a couple of ways that this is going to save some money. That's two-thirds of the entire GOP Senate caucus. It did not sound like a lengthier phase-out of the Medicaid expansion would satisfy Heller the way it might satisfy, say, Ohio Sen. The chamber has 52 GOP senators. Aetna, UnitedHealth, and Centene also rose on the news. This would be a disaster in a state like Florida that has been miserly for years. The legislation caps per-person payments to the states, giving the states a new incentive to run the program efficiently. He noted that there "isn't anything in this bill that would lower premiums", and that to say otherwise would be a "lie".

Through that expansion, millions have gained coverage. He said any repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act would have "insurance for everybody", telling the Washington Post, "there was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it". It would cut billions in Medicaid spending and give wealthy Americans billions in tax cuts.
