The Public Pulse: Clearing up some health care misconceptions

They reported improvements in affordability of care, regular care for their conditions, medication adherence, and self-reported health.

"If Congress's version of the American Health Care Act becomes a reality, the impact on New York State could be devastating", Brindisi said. But they have this big problem in that they've promised their base...repeal. Learn the facts about Trumpcare and selfishly see if it works for you. The Affordable Care Act is essential to me and people like me.

Toomey said they're working to find common ground. "And he said "I'm maybe willing to be part of a repeal and replace strategy". If the Senate doesn't act quickly, thousands of folks in the individual market will not get the desperately needed relief from skyrocketing premiums, fewer choices and intervention of government into their medical decisions.

"It's been surprising to me how many people I've heard who, five years ago, wouldn't have said something like that", he said. The Kaiser Family Foundation says more than half the population has the choice of three or more insurers if it wants to buy a policy on the exchanges.

He also said Americans should be direct consumers of health care by increasing the use of health savings accounts, or HSAs.

The insurance markets are continuing to deteriorate, Blase said. It's not something in Obamacare.

Trump just gives to the like-minded greedy, corrupt and uncaring insurance companies.

Senate Republicans have been dubiously dissecting the House health care bill since it passed 217 to 213 on May 4. Fix or improve Obamacare.

In a statement to Missourinet, Blunt didn't waver from the Republican stance to do away with the current health care system.

"Obamacare is collapsing. It's dead".

Provisions in the Affordable Care Act, such as access to health insurance regardless of a pre-existing condition, expanded coverage of Medicaid, and funding for preventive health services for women, like those offered at Planned Parenthood, have contributed to more African Americans gaining health insurance coverage.
