WV's GOP congressmen seem to have punted AHCA to Senate

That's how she feels about the Congressional Budget Office's score of the House-passed health care bill.

"Passing the health care bill out of the House was just one step in the legislative process", McKinley said in the statement.

The Republican-led Senate can only afford to lose two of its 52 members and still pass a health care bill. Marco Rubio said he'll make clear that the Senate is working on its own legislation, the implication being that it won't mirror the House bill.

"New Jersey now gets about $10 billion a year in Medicaid funding".

The ACA greatly expanded access to health insurance by permitting states to cover more residents through Medicaid, an insurance program funded jointly by the federal government and states that covers low-income people and those in need, including children and people with disabilities.

It will also cause premiums to decline as less sick individuals sign up for insurance under the bill.

"That's what we have to try to do is come up with options in our version of the bill that prevent those kind of outcomes", said Thune.

Sen. Joe Manchin, West Virginia's only Democrat in Congress, cited the extra people who wouldn't have insurance as one of several problems he has with the bill.

"I don't know how we get to 50 [votes] at the moment".

Under the AHCA, 44 percent of American voters say their health insurance costs will go up, while 12 percent say they will go down and 33 percent say they will stay the same.

She fears that under the American Health Care Act cancer patients could end up in new, high-risk pools with a grim prognosis.

In states not getting waivers, where it estimated half the country lives, average premiums would be about 4 percent lower in 2026 than under Obama's law, the report said.

MacArthur's amendment paved the way for the bill's passage by allowing states to request waivers that would allow insurers to offer fewer benefits to policyholders and raise rates for those with pre-existing conditions. By choosing the former, people who are healthier than average would be able to purchase nongroup insurance with relatively low premiums, according to the agencies.

Neal, Berrang and Hamilton pointed to a report released Tuesday from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services stating that premiums are 105 percent higher in the 39 states using www.healthcare.gov markets than they were in 2013, with average monthly premiums jumping from $232 to $476 in that time. "It is a damning indictment of congressional Republicans' and President Trump's reassurances that the bill guarantees protection for people with pre-existing conditions", said Emily Gee, health economist at CAP.

But such predictions are hard, particularly in health care.

"The premium might be lower but there will be benefits missing", said Gary Claxton, a vice president of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, a clearinghouse for information about the health care system.

The report said that under Obama's law, the nation's health insurance market is expected to remain "stable in most areas" because federal subsidies to millions of consumers largely rise with premiums.

For example, older Americans who make little money and buy individual insurance would see their premiums climb far beyond what they would be under Obamacare. Budget rules dictate that if the bill's deficit savings had not reached $2 billion (and that $2 billion had to come from particular spending categories), the bill would be dead upon arrival.
