New ACA legislation vote 3-23-17

7 posts in this topic

Congress is set to vote next week on the replacement healthcare law.This law  if enacted will not help anyone of us.Insurance rates will climb if you afford having insurance.The only beneficiaries will be insurance and pharmaceutical companies who will not have to pay into the old plan.All the 14 million medicad will lose their care in one year.

All it takes is a call or letter to your congressperson to let them know how you feel about the  sellout.

have a pleasant weekend

john

Hi John,

As I've said on another thread: http://forum.parkinson.org/topic/21947-pay-attention/

"The issue is actually Medicaid.  A $880 billion permanent cut to short term nursing home care (after hospitalization), long term nursing home care, respite care, physical therapy, home health care aides, hospice and respite services, hoyer lifts and hospital beds for the home, wheelchairs, drugs.  That's just for the PD population.

If you want further info for addiction services, psychiatric treatment, children's coverage, pregnancy, homeless vet care, go to https://www.medicaid.gov/

The issue is the deep cuts to the elderly, sick, very young, and disabled among us."

 

The AHCA is important, as the major purpose is to remove Medicaid.  All Americans, whether they know it or not, use Medicaid in some part of their lives.  Let your Representatives know what you think, however you think.

Healthcare should be a priority instead of defense,in terms of budget cuts and increase.But the politicians are not getting this.A healthy nation is a strong and wealthy one.

The vote in the house is schueled for tomorrow to celebrate the anniversary of the original AHA seven years ago.On a good note many republicans are speaking out against the bill Most say there is a lot more work to be done so no one needlessly goes without care.So if you haven't called your congressman  please do.

Im sure you all heard that the ACa bill was repealed.That was a good thing for many people.Now there is work to be done to improve the old bill.

My feeling is healthcare is far to costly for what it should be and maybe price controls wouldnt be a good place to start.

Thanks for all you did their part in this effort.
