AARP stands against new health care act

But when CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer pressed Price on whether he could promise Caliari wouldn't be financially worse off as a result of the GOP plan, Price said she would not be worse off from a healthcare standpoint. It is true that you may hear more complaints from Canadians, but that is because their health system is a public one compared to our private one.

"About half of what Texas hospitals get from Medicaid today comes through payments that are outside from the regular Medicaid program", she says, which adds up to $4 billion in federal funds every year.

The difference in approaches could translate into average reductions in government financial aid for low-income and older Floridians ranging from about $850 a year to almost $6,000 annually for a standard ACA plan, according to AARP.

Although the current health-care system is far from flawless, Polacheck said, this plan - which could get a vote as early as next week - would make health care less secure and less affordable.

He racked up those medical bills in 2007. "For example, pre-existing conditions are important, but we may lose them as part of the new health care law".

This new bill - the State Age Rating Flexibility Act of 2017 - is Washington-speak for an age tax that would let insurance companies charge older Americans as much as five times what they charge other people for the same coverage.

Insurers have always been allowed to charge older consumers more for premiums. That's less than half of what Bentlage is getting now under the ACA.

"They don't take a lot stuff into consideration, although it's a starting point", said Mullin.

If the plan is approved, he said, older Arkansans can expect to see some eye-popping health insurance premiums.

State government and biotechnology industry spokesmen, meanwhile, spoke out against a $6 billion proposed reduction in the budget for the National Institutes of Health contained in the Trump budget, which they said would have "devastating" effects on the state's medical technology industry.

"What we have learned in this process is that the Republicans aren't really interested in trying to address problems in the health insurance market", Hernández said. "In my opinion, the current bill does not answer this crisis".

Coverage will be less generous but cost you more.

About 150-170,000 people in Iowa gained coverage through the Medicaid expansion, they won't necessarily automatically loose coverage, that's to be determined, but the state won't get the same amount of money that they did for those people. But, the plan doesn't do enough to limit eligibility for Medicaid or to cut health care premiums in the individual market, Johnson said.

Missouri's Republican congressional delegation has said Obamacare has failed.
