Obamacare is an exchange. You pick the insurance company/plan you want. If there was a snafu re network coverage, which is what I assume the doctors in different countries thing is about, that's on the insurance company, not the exchange.

Not when you get it through Maryland's exchange its not on the insurance company, its on Anthony Brown's head.

Here's a good piece on it that also explains how Mulvaney and Price continue to mislead. Expansion funding disappears in 2020.

Wasn't part of the ACA that the govt would give less to the states over the years for Medicaid ..???

Not having to look at these exchanges, are all Insurance companies listed to choose from or just the ones eligible in that state ..???


Just the ones licensed in that state. Which is true outside of the ACA exchange.

Do you understand how the medicaid expansion works?

Obamacare contains many provisions to help poor and lower-income Americans. It expanded Medicaid to cover adults who earn up to $16,400 a year -- some 11 million people in 31 states and the District of Columbia are now insured as a result.

Also, those with incomes just under $30,000 receive generous subsidies to lower their premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket costs on the individual market.

The American Health Care Act would reverse much of this. It would end the enhanced federal Medicaid funding for new enrollees starting in 2020. Those already in the program could stay as long as they remain continuously insured. But since up to half have a break in coverage each year, it's likely participation would fall off quickly, said Jocelyn Guyer, managing director at Manatt Health, a consulting firm.

But the Republican bill would go beyond just eliminating Medicaid expansion. It would overhaul the whole program, which covers more than 70 million people, by sending states a fixed amount of money per enrollee, known as a per-capita cap. This would limit federal responsibility, shifting that burden to the states. However, since states don't have the money to make up the difference, they would likely either reduce eligibility, curtail benefits or cut provider payments.

Bill now freezes Medicaid expansion immediately instead of 2020. Had to make it crueler to obtain more conservative support.

I will be up to the states to prioritize spending. They have many avenues to do that.

 

They can even go the the tax payers and ask for tax increases.

Yes but the states part would increase over the years making it less affordable for the state.

Things could change by Thursday, but the votes don't appear to be there now in the House (or the Senate).

Not under the ACA part of xyz was setting up exchanges if a state didn't the Feds did it for them but those states got less Medicaid money. Under the ACHA all states would get the lesser amount and those states who wanted to do xyz have to pay for it themselves

If Trump personally called congressman over the weekend he might have gotten the votes.

The problem is it's a bill nobody really likes, Doubt if Orange really understands what's in it and they only thing he cares about is getting a perceived win.
