Wisconsin seems a victor under GOP health care bill formula

Wisconsin seems a victor under GOP health care bill formula”

After that, 60 votes will be needed in a Senate in which there are 52 Republicans.

As of Friday, it wasn't clear if Republicans had enough votes to pass the proposal but Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., is one of the bill's co-sponsors and his support is not in question, but the episode suggests the value of helping craft of legislation.

The bill was chiefly written by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, along with Sens.

Medicaid would change from an entitlement program - where anyone who qualifies receives coverage and the states receive federal reimbursement for a share of the cost - into a program in which states receive a capped amount of funding for each enrollee. Recent bills in the Senate would have been disastrous for families like mine.

MA could lose billions of dollars under the latest effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, which specifically singles out blue states that have expanded Medicaid coverage under the federal law.

With the plan's redistribution of ACA funds, a typical Medicaid expansion state would see an 11 percent decline in federal funding while a non-expansion state would see a 12 percent increase, Kaiser said.

The provisions hardly ensure support from Murkowski, who's said she's studying how the measure would affect her state. That's the conclusion of an analysis released on September 21 by Avalere Health. These adults were ineligible for Medicaid before the Affordable Care Act, according to the Connecticut Health Foundation. The move would largely benefit Republican states by giving them a block grant that they can then choose how they wish to spend while many Democratic states would instead have to reconfigure how they pay for healthcare. But it seems to be a sweeter deal for Wisconsin - in the short run - thanks to a provision in the bill that seems to have been designed specifically for our state. This language could mean "potentially hundreds of millions" of extra dollars for Wisconsin, said Grady.

Johnson says in a statement "the innovative reforms of Wisconsin" should be reflected in funding formulas to correct "grossly unfair" distribution of money under President Barack Obama's health care law.

"The deliberate intent of this law is to redistribute money from the states that expanded Medicaid to those that didn't", he said.

The provision in the health care bill applies to states that expanded Medicaid only up to 100 percent of the federal poverty level and had that expansion in effect this past September 1.

Since the bill's details emerged, health industry and other groups have been lining up against it.

CT state and federal officials, along with insurers and the 50 Medicaid directors, have raised concerns over the proposal.

Separately, about 72,000 Connecticut residents who purchase their own insurance through Access Health CT receive federal tax credits that discount the cost of their premiums.
