Action Alert! Prevent Gutting of the ACA and Medicaid

 

The Basics:

  •  Allows insurance corporations to charge people with pre-existing conditions whatever the want. The Trump/GOP proposal guts the protection against health insurers hiking premiums for people with pre-existing conditions.
  • Barebones insurance that doesn’t require any coverage. Allows insurers to not cover hospitals, doctors, prescriptions, lab tests, mental health, maternity and newborn care, substance abuse. There’s a reason these are called essential health benefits.
  • Allows insurance companies to cap how much they pay for your care. Eliminating essential health benefits also eliminates the prohibition on health insurance companies putting annual or lifetime limits on how much they pay for your care.
  • Higher Premiums for People Who Actually Need Health Care: Health insurance companies will sell barebones plans which leave off basic coverage at a low price and hike the prices of coverage that covers care people actually need, with the biggest hikes for people who have had any medical care.
  • AND IT STILL TAKES HEALTH COVERAGE AWAY FROM 24 MILLION PEOPLE, HIKES INSURANCE PREMIUMS, HITS PEOPLE IN THEIR 50s and 60s the HARDEST AND SLASHES MEDICAID BY $880 BILLION.
