Cuomo: NY state will keep Affordable Care Act protections

Davis says health care act offers more hope to those with pre-existing conditions

Details of Cuomo's pre-emptive strike against efforts by Republicans in Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare were reported by the New York Times.

Under the governor's proposed regulations, insurers in NY state would be barred from participating in health insurance programs funded by Medicaid if they choose to opt out of offering Qualified Health Plans in the State Health Marketplace.

Sasse says the numbers work against replacement of the Affordable Care Act with only 52 Republicans in the United States Senate.

Entrepreneurs around the country don't want or need another healthcare overhaul; what they need is quality, affordable health coverage so they can focus on running their businesses. The Congressional Budget Office projects that the number of 50- to 64-year-olds who are uninsured would rise to 10 million in 2026, about 5.1 million more than the number who would be uninsured under current law.

The survey was conducted before many of Obamacare's major policies were enacted that aimed to tax the richest Americans to help pay for expanded health coverage for the poorest, the Washington Post reported. He noted that Obamacare is based on the MA health care plan. Supporters of the AHCA have said it would give states more flexibility in providing health care.

Companies still have a couple more months to sort out their 2018 coverage plans.

At the Governor's direction, the Department of Health will ban all insurers who withdraw from offering Qualified Health Plans on the State Health Marketplace from future participation in any program that interacts with the marketplace, including Medicaid, Child Health Plus, and the Essential Plan.

Washington Health Benefit Exchange CEO Pam McEwan also issued her own sharp critique of the Trump administration, which has threatened to discontinue cost-sharing reduction payments to compensate insurers and issued new regulations that could weaken the individual mandate. Trump has said it would be politically advantageous to let the law "explode" to force Democrats who passed it to the bargaining table. Cuomo rarely mentions Trump by name, and still needs the president to help provide massive infrastructure building aid for NY airports, highways, bridges, tunnels and mass transit.
