Angry Voters Are Confronting Terrifying GOP Members Over Potential Obamacare Repeal

That number drops to 95 percent this year, per the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as Obamacare, so states are already prepared to pick up some of the financial slack. To effectively repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Congress and the administration must work together, and Tom will play a very important role in that process.

"People have the ability to go get preventive care, to keep them more healthy on the front end if they have insurance, and they don't to just rely on emergency rooms", Chandler said. But now, because Republicans want to repeal the law, "I'm anxious and scared for everyone with a preexisting condition".

Although Colvin said the confusion made it harder to reach consumers, her program signed up some 4,000 people, or about 6 percent more than past year. Meanwhile, there's so much confusion and anxiety about the GOP strategy - or lack thereof - for ACA repeal and replacement that well-connected Washington lobbyists and policy experts are asking news reporters, "What are you hearing?"

"It's clear overall enrollment numbers are trending downward for "Obamacare" over past year, no doubt due to the law's unpopular mandates and high costs", Sen.

Reports suggest that an IUD will cost nearly $1000 without an insurance cover and the women will have to pay for it themselves without an insurance cover to fall back on.

For Glenn Thompson, there are only two options at this point in regard to the Affordable Care Act.

But now Oller is among the Kentuckians that are anxious that the health insurance she has spent years signing people up for may disappear if there's a repeal of Obamacare by President Donald Trump, even though she voted for him. This is why if Congress insists on repealing the ACA instead of just fixing what needs to be fixed, as consumers, we all should demand to see a complete and comprehensive alternative plan put in its place. "My main thing is the people in the area, they have to have healthcare".

"What I hear from most is they want to get rid of the ACA", Griffith said.

"That is unacceptable, and is why I introduced legislation that would protect individuals from having to pay the costly Obamacare penalty if they live in a county with no competition as the President promised; or if their premiums increase over 10 percent in a given year", he said. Bob Casey made it the focus of a conference call with reporters Thursday in which he berated Republicans for playing political games with health care.

Independent analyst Caroline Pearson of the consulting firm Avalere Health said without the full support of the new administration, insurance markets will continue to struggle.

That would allow insurers to pay higher rates to providers and keep premiums lower, Udow-Phillips said.

For estimating purposes, researchers combined most Pennsylvania counties into groups of at least 200,000 people.

"The ACA mandate requires everyone to have insurance because the healthy people pull up the sick people, right?"

"Access to care really wasn't expanded by providing coverage through Medicaid". High-risk pools, which isolated those with the heftiest bills, led to higher costs and deductibles, and insurers could still limit coverage based on pre-existing conditions "as serious as HIV or as mild as seasonal hay fever", according to Kaiser.

The group gathered outside of the Congressman's office chanting, "It's cold outside but we're here to say, Mike Kelly hands off the ACA!"

"It means a loss of jobs, a loss of pride in the community", he said, adding that survivors still feel like "we're being attacked by a government that thinks rural hospitals don't matter".
