Brown: Senate health care alternative bad for rural Ohio

Mc Connell is planning on rolling out the GOP's revised health care bill pushing toward a showdown vote next week with oppositio Heritage Foundation's Binion talks GOP's new health care bill

It's unclear whether Republicans will give any thought to adopting some of the provisions to this plan.

Still, Republicans don't appear any closer to having a plan that can pass both the House and Senate.

Ten House Democrats released a plan Wednesday that acknowledges Obamacare's problems but proposes a series of ideas to fix them in place of the Republican push to repeal and replace the law outright.

"We need an alternative to the "Just say no" policy that has pervaded Democrats up until now", Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), who is one of the group of Democrats who crafted the proposal, told Vox.

The Bevin administration said the changes, aimed largely at "able-bodied" adults, are part of an effort to "provide dignity to individuals" and help them toward "independence from public assistance".

As its fate hangs in the balance, the ACA receives approval from a slight majority of Americans, 53%. The House Democratic plan would allow older Americans who fall short of the Medicare eligibility age to buy into the program.

Cory Monteith's co-star and close friend, Dianna Agron, also shared a sentimental message with her followers on the anniversary. At the time, the actress confessed that dealing with his death was not an easy task and that she continued to struggle.

The ongoing debate in Washington may be hardening some people's views against the repeal and replace plan.

Brown issued a report citing research from the Chartis Center for Rural Health saying that 22 percent of OH hospitals would be at risk of closure because of Medicaid funding cuts should the Better Care Reconciliation Act, the ACA alternative proposed by Senate Republicans, become law. That number was down to 237 by the time of open enrollment that November.

For 2018, 141 qualified health plans will be available in the federally-facilitated exchange market, compared to 227 offered in 2017 during the initial submission period.

This week the Senate is deciding health care coverage for us all.

Like the uncertainty that greeted employers when ACA was first introduced seven years ago, organizations are once again faced with the prospect of proposed changes that could impact their bottom line and make it hard for future planning. So, instead of bashing President Trump, I suggest calling those men and women who are building this bill and tell them what you want to see. Of the organizations stating they would discontinue coverage, 64% said it would be due to the high cost of health care coverage.
