Wallie Morris: Protect individuals with pre-existing conditions

19 May 2017, 10:39 | Marion Schneider

Then, we are right back where we were when it became necessary to create the Affordable Care Act.

The House approved the GOP's ACA replacement plan, known as the American Health Care Act, May 4.

Health care advocates say the elimination of the so-called "premium tax credits" would make medical coverage for low- and moderate-income individuals more expensive.

More than half of the participants said they had preexisting conditions, and the ones living in Medicaid expansion states were more likely to have a regular source of care for their chronic condition, with fewer delays in care and less trouble paying medical bills. The American Health Care Act will stabilize our health-care system, ensuring our community has access to high quality, affordable health care.

AARP contends that under the House bill, insurance providers could jack up rates on older Americans five times or more for their coverage.

However, when the 2016 election campaign started, it was discovered that people actually liked at least parts of Obamacare and had grown to expect the government to be involved in health care insurance coverage. A large number of those with pre-existing conditions now get their insurance through the ACA.

The basic issue here is whether or not one believes that health care is a human right.

That market has national plans which provide work based coverage for the staff of every congress member.

Before the Affordable Care Act, it was hard to buy an individual health insurance policy for those who were pregnant, had sleep apnea or diabetes, among other problems. It will cause people to lose coverage, costs will continue to rise and people will suffer more and some will die.

"Obamacare has failed", Alleigh Marre, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, told the LA Times.

Republicans say repealing former President Barack Obama's signature health care law will lower premiums and deductibles and give consumers more control over their health care.

"I couldn't support the House bill, because I didn't believe it provided adequate coverage for people who are now being helped by expanded Medicaid", Sen. No limits on what insurance companies can charge.

Additionally, KFF estimates 3.8 million adults with individual market insurance in 2015, or 25 percent of all adult enrollees, had a declinable pre-existing condition and would not face premium surcharges under the AHCA community rating waivers if they maintain continuous coverage.
