Health care reform leaves students with concerns

Darnell ReidJan 26, 2017

While the executive order does not tell working people a whole lot about what he plans to do, it's worth looking at a few things he did and didn't say in his first official action on health care. And we are the public, and so we are damned by the uncaring, heedless congressional Republicans. "The Court has had many opportunities to overturn Roe v. Wade and has instead repeatedly reaffirmed a woman's right to make abortion decisions for herself", says Julie Rikelman, litigation director at the Center for Reproductive Rights.

Do you think Cassidy and Collins' bill can work, or do you take Schumer's side?

The legislation provides for three options: States could keep Obamacare, choose a new market-based system and keep the federal money or design their own plan with no funding from Washington.

By contrast, effects on the District from changes to the insurance exchanges established under the ACA - clearing houses where people without health insurance can shop for plans and determine their eligibility for federal subsidies - would not be as severe. Without this coverage, it is possible that individuals with pre-existing conditions on their medical record can be denied coverage from insurers, they can be charged more for similar care, and the amount of coverage they received can be restricted.

Capito said the bill also retains "improvements to the federal Black Lung benefits program, which is especially important to West Virginia".

The head of one of Oregon's largest health insurers, Moda Health, said the company will remain in the individual market for now. Dr. Aaron Carroll at The Incidental Economist argues that the bill won't get much support at the present time from either side of the aisle as "there's no reason for Dems to support this" and there hasn't been any GOP leadership support yet given to the plan.


She wanted to know how people would enroll, or how high their premiums and deductibles would be.

They say their plan is not ideal, but it's a start.

The health care law is still on the books and available to consumers - and 89 percent of Floridians who have signed up for Marketplace coverage will receive advanced premium tax credits that lower their premiums by an average of $323 per month.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) denounced the idea as an "empty facade" and a "far cry" from a full replacement for Obamacare.

"The Affordable Care Act must be preserved".

- States can opt into a new plan created by a team assembled by Sens. But she said she hopes that elements of the Patient Freedom Act will prove attractive enough to win over the eight Democratic votes it needs to get through the Senate.
