Here are some of these key provisions that could change under the AHCA possibly affecting those seeking treatment for opioid addiction or substance abuse. Like any bill, the AHCA is a work in progress and will not become law as it now stands. He pointed to three main areas of contention with the American Health Care Act: cutting Medicaid by $850 billion; less coverage for seniors while increasing costs, and taking away insurance for up to 24 million Americans.
Historians will look back at the Obama years and note the rise of Democrat Party lemmings who threw themselves off the Obamacare Cliff in a fit of melodramatic sanctimoniousness.
"But you can charge people more", Stephanopoulos suggested.
In addition, Republican senators from states that expanded Medicaid have held their own meetings in which GOP leadership has also participated.
"We have no interest in playing the games of identity politics, that's not what this is about; it's about getting a job done", the aide said. As The Washington Post Fact Checker noted, not only does the bill not classify rape or sexual assault as a pre-existing condition, nearly all states have their own protections for victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Essentially, the House's bill phased out Medicaid expansion over time.
A recent survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that over 20 million Americans gained health coverage between the ACA's enactment in 2010 and 2016, dropping the uninsured rate from 16 percent to 8.8 percent. But they needed a victory and this was the best they could do. This reckless vote both denies or threatens the health care of those who need it the most and fundamentally shifts the burden of health care costs from a shared responsibility to those people, cities, counties and states who can afford it the least.

The uncertainty comes despite what Hatch said on the floor of the Senate in February, when he called repealing the Obamacare taxes essential, labeling them "harmful to the economy".
"Medicaid is the major provider for mental health at this point", said Walter. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for one, has long had on his website a statement ripping the law because it was "passed on a partisan vote with the rationale that we would have to pass it to find out what was in it". To be sure, the American people will "make no mistake about" who is responsible for their future premiums and deductibles, what is covered and what is not in their new insurance plans, and their future access to affordable health care. "Now that the bill is law, the American people are finding out that what's in it is completely contrary to what they were promised". Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told MSNBC Tuesday. The legislation maintains a federal baseline of protection in such cases, and says only that states can apply for a waiver from it, provided that they abide by certain conditions meant to ensure that no one is left out in the cold.
If there are higher premiums, getting help to overcome opioid addiction could make a hard situation almost impossible.
Democrats wrote that they'd work with the GOP to reduce premiums and drug costs, stabilize insurance markets, and help small businesses provide health coverage.
Congratulations, Reince. Because that's such a convoluted lie-unlike your colleagues' simpler ones-I've got to unpack it a little.
