Montana is proposing to eliminate their current waiver’s premium credit. Under current waiver, beneficiaries subject to premiums receive a credit toward accrued co- payments up to 2% of income. A member with a premium would now be subject to 2% income in premium and 3% income in copayment, per quarter, without the premium credit. This change does not require waiver authority; however, the change in policy is counted as a restriction in this table.

What is in the Republican health- care bill? Questions and answers on preexisting conditions, Medicaid and more. As Republicans push out new revisions to save their health- care plan, The Post's Paige W. Cunningham explains the sticking points spurring on the internal fighting over the bill. Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post)Q: Is the bill that passed the House today intended to repeal the Affordable Care Act? Not entirely. In the seven years since a Democratic Congress and the Obama administration pushed through the ACA, the House has taken more than 6.
But today’s vote was a first- stage effort, with the bill intended — at least originally — to address only those parts of the sprawling law with budgetary implications. It is designed that way so the Senate will have an easier time passing the legislation under a “reconciliation” process that allows bills with budgetary impact to be approved by a simple majority, rather than a filibuster- proof 6. Q: So what does the House Republican bill include and exclude? In broad strokes, the legislation has a lot of financial aspects. For instance, it would substantially reduce the funding for subsidies that the ACA provides to most people seeking health coverage through insurance marketplaces the law created.
It also would make other changes to those subsidies in ways that, overall, would help younger adults and increase premiums for older people. The bill also would eliminate several taxes the ACA created to help pay for its provisions, including on health insurers and affluent Americans. The House GOP plan would not eliminate the requirement that most Americans carry health insurance. Instead, it would get rid of the penalty imposed for not having insurance and would create a new deterrent for having a gap in coverage: a one- year 3.
Q: Would this affect the number of people with insurance in the United States? Yes. According to an estimate of the bill's original version by the Congressional Budget Office, 2. San Francisco Attractions For Adults. The CBO did not update that forecast since House Republicans tinkered with aspects of the legislation to secure enough GOP votes for it to narrowly pass. Q: What would happen to the ACA's marketplaces? The bill would not end the federal and state marketplaces that, since 2. However, while the ACA's premium subsidies can be used only within these marketplaces, the bill's new tax credits could also be used outside them. A looming question is what effect the House's vote on Thursday will have on insurers' willingness to stay in the marketplaces for 2.
In lieu of a CBO score, an overview of the expected effects of the GOP health- care bill] Q: How would the bill change protections for people with preexisting conditions? Under the ACA, insurers are prohibited from denying coverage to individuals based on preexisting medical conditions, such as cancer, high blood pressure or asthma. And the ACA requires insurers to offer “community rating,” meaning they cannot charge those with costly medical conditions more than they charge other consumers in the general insurance pool. But an amendment written last week by Rep. Tom Mac. Arthur (R- N. J.) would allow states to obtain a waiver from the Health and Human Services Department so they could charge customers with preexisting conditions more than other people. If HHS did not respond to a state’s waiver request within 6.
Health experts predict that the result would be a sharp rise in premium increases for those with medical problems. Before the ACA became law, individuals with chronic diseases paid several times as much as others — if they could afford or be approved for a policy in the first place. Concerned about the effect the Mac. Arthur amendment would have on those with long- standing medical conditions, GOP Reps. Fred Upton (Mich.) and Billy Long (Mo.) crafted a provision Wednesday to provide $8 billion to help these patients pay for increased premiums and out- of- pocket costs.
That money would be spread among whichever states decided to let insurers return to the practice of charging higher rates to certain customers. As part of a waiver application to HHS, a state would be required to include a "risk- sharing plan" — either recreating a so- called high- risk pool, which many states tried before the ACA — or designing a subsidy program for residents with preexisting conditions. Q: Does the bill treat domestic violence, sexual assault, Caesarean section and postpartum depression as preexisting conditions? The bill does not spell out either what sort of preexisting conditions insurers may take into account if states seek a waiver from the existing federal law.
