The Senate health bill is a travesty on a fast track

Price reiterated the argument he has made for months, saying the bills under consideration in Congress are only one part of the GOP's health care plan and that HHS will take action on the administration side to lower premiums - which Heller said the Senate's newly revealed bill will not do.

American Hospital Association President Rick Pollack is urging the Senate to "go back to the drawing board" and draft a healthcare bill that "continues to provide coverage to all Americans who now have it".

Sens. Dean Heller of Nevada, facing a competitive 2018 re-election battle, Rob Portman of OH and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia expressed concerns about the bill's cuts to Medicaid and drug addiction efforts.

The Senate health care bill created to replace the Affordable Care Act has drawn criticism from conservative Republican lawmakers who say the measure does not go far enough to repeal Obamacare. They have expressed concerns over the bill's changes to the program, which provides low-income Americans with financial support to access health insurance. BRCA will result in many Americans-especially low- and moderate-income and older Americans-paying thousands more in premiums for skimpier health plans. It would be bad for Florida and the nation, and the Senate would be foolish to rush to vote next week on such a cynical, flawed effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

McConnell released the bill after weeks of closed-door meetings searching for middle ground between conservative senators seeking an aggressive repeal of Obama's statute and centrists warning about going too far.

With all Democrats expected to oppose the measure, the Republicans can afford to lose the support of only two of their 52 members if they want to pass the legislation.

The S.C. Hospital Association, which represents more than 60 hospitals across the state, issued a public statement Friday explaining that the proposed Medicaid cuts "will shift financial pressure to the state and force state policy makers to choose between raising additional state revenue or taking funding from other essential state services".

"Cruz or Sen. Paul about the direction the bill should be heading in", said Sen. "Scott there says that Medicaid's not being cut from their perspective, but based on what we see right now in the bill there's just no way that's true", Zwillich says.

Sandoval said the Senate bill "is something that needs to change". The bill would also bar using tax credits to buy coverage that includes abortions.

The Congressional Budget Office has yet to release estimates on the Senate health care bill.

The reforms are unlikely to drive down out-of-pocket spending, another perennial complaint of the bill's authors, and a central critique by President Trump of the current system. The enhanced federal financing that pays for the expansion would disappear entirely in 2024.

"It doesn't protect Nevadans on Medicaid and the most vulnerable Nevadans", Heller said at a news conference in Las Vegas.

In both bills, however, the Medicaid phase-out is delayed - which is why Wisconsin health-care organizations are concerned.

Heller got an opponent for next year when first-year Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen announced this week she would seek his Senate seat.
