Price: 'Thin needle to thread' to get lawmakers to support healthcare bill

Price: 'Thin needle to thread' to get lawmakers to support healthcare bill”

"She has met with and heard the concerns of many Mainers about their health care challenges, and she will continue to do so as she studies the impact of this legislation on ME and the nation".

The bill would cut and redesign the Medicaid program for low-income and disabled people.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Nevada Republican Dean Heller became the fifth GOP senator to declare his opposition to the party's banner legislation to scuttle much of Barack Obama's health care overhaul on Friday, more than enough to sink the measure and deliver a stinging rebuke to President Donald Trump unless some of them can be brought aboard.

"Work with me. Don't work against us", said Manchin.

Against fast-moving developments, a look at some major issues for consumers. He's particularly concerned about spending cuts to Medicaid included in the bill.

Continues the radical restructuring of Medicaid by permanently capping and reducing the funding needed to serve 1.6 million New Jersey seniors, people with disabilities and children. Each state has expanded Medicaid and has a GOP senator. About 11 million are covered by the expansion. The federal matching rate would be reduced starting in 2021 in the Senate bill, instead of 2020 in the House bill, and it would be phased down over three years.

Governors of both parties have warned Congress that would mean a cost shift to states that undermines coverage for the vulnerable.

The bill would let states get waivers to ignore some coverage requirements under Obama's law, such as specific health services insurers must now cover. "Remember, ObamaCare is dead", Trump tweeted late Thursday. Indeed, candidate Trump had started out promising no cuts to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid.

ROVNER: Well, of course, there's only 52 Republicans in the Senate. At some point, over a period of years, the federal government would basically limit what it pays for Medicaid, which has always been a shared program between the states and the federal government.

Other Republicans appeared more willing to embrace it.

Under Obama, the nation's uninsured rate dropped below 9 percent, a historic low.

Kasich said he opposes the Senate bill and called on Republicans to change it.

McConnell has said he wants the chamber to vote on the measure this week, after an open-amendment process.

Seven or eight Republican senators have been meeting under the leadership of Rob Portman of OH to express concern about Medicaid, Collins added. Warren is a leading liberal and defender of the current health law.

Dr. Mott Blair of Wallace, N.C., recalls a patient who got a colonoscopy that found a polyp, which undetected could have led to colon cancer.

"It's going to be very hard to get me to a yes", he said, noting that conservative Republican senators would likely be reluctant to add spending back to the measure. "They're not going to have a disastrous complication like a stroke or a heart attack, at least not for the foreseeable future".

For their part, insurers may heavily pressure states to make such changes, analysts said.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association represents plans that are the backbone of HealthCare.gov and state health insurance markets created under former President Barack Obama's law. An estimated 17 million to 20 million people have individual policies.

"Democrats slam GOP healthcare proposal as Obamacare premiums & deductibles increase by over 100%".

The Senate measure maintains much of the structure of a House bill passed in May but differs in several key ways. The House and Senate formulas for subsidies differ. "What it does do is allow states to get waivers" allowing exceptions to rules requiring comprehensive coverage, he said.

McConnell can only afford to lose two Republican votes amid unanimous Democratic opposition to the health care bill.

Over the long run, premiums for younger people are expected to come down.

"I can not support a piece of legislation that takes insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and tens of thousands of Nevadans", Heller said.
