USA health spending in 2015 rose at its fastest rate since 2007, driven by expanded access to insurance under the Affordable Care Act and high-priced specialty drugs, according to government figures released on Friday. Price, an orthopedic surgeon, is a long-time advocate of plans to make Medicaid a block grant in which the federal government provides a fixed amount of money to each state, with the growth rate pegged at a level lower than medical cost inflation, while providing governors with increased flexibility to cover fewer people and to offer them fewer benefits. He encouraged people to enroll in health-care plans under the Affordable Care Act. The ACA had been meant to get a handle on high health care costs. California would like to allow unauthorized immigrant residents to buy unsubsidized health insurance on the Covered California exchange. And so, in true free-market fashion, they're prepared to give the health insurance industry a massive bailout to counter the problems they're going to create.

Reyes said part of the challenge is convincing young people - who generally have less disposable income and are in better health - that insurance is worth the investment. Price's plan structures tax credits based on age brackets - $1,200 for people ages 18 to 35 and up to $3,000 for those 50 and older.
The senator also assured that "people with pre-existing conditions will be protected" throughout the transition.
Under Obamacare, people can't be denied coverage or charged more because of pre-existing conditions. The thing is that these sick pools, where sick people with even sicker people are put together, tend to charge extremely and nearly unaffordable high premiums.
Therefore, replacing Obama's efforts on healthcare is easier said than done. The ACA isn't ideal and it can certainly be improved.
The Republican Party, specifically in the House of Representatives, has a history of doing everything it can to repeal the ACA and have tried to delay or defund it persistently.
