Debate about "Trumpcare" - the repeal, and replacement, of the 2010 Affordable Care Act - has ignored the fact that congressional Republicans are, effectively, also working to repeal, and replace, the 1965 Medicaid Act.
Tuesday morning's discussion at the University of Rochester's nursing school was led by Donna Frescatore, executive director of the NY State of Health insurance marketplace, and focused on one dominating topic - how the Senate Republicans' bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, could damage the state and endanger New Yorkers. If you don't pay, your employer will, putting millions of American jobs at risk as companies struggle with these costs just like citizens are. Both California and NY state are moving towards single-payer plans.
Will this be the case with Jefferson County Health Center as well if the new health care bill passes? Recent Commonwealth Fund analysis by Alan Dobson and colleagues indicates that rural hospitals in expansion states may see an 18 percent reduction in Medicaid revenue under the AHCA.
Since we will never entirely agree on what the "normal" or "natural" funding levels for a program like Medicaid should be, the only rational way to look at Medicaid proposals is to compare how much money it would take to finance Medicaid under current law, and how much the proposals would change those costs. While the USA is a leader at fostering medical and technical innovation, access to care has been squeezed at a time when a large demographic bubble is about to retire, providing stress on government programs as never before. Based on the CBO's estimates, if the bill succeeds, some 15 million fewer people would have health insurance by the end of 2018.
I urge the Senate to continue working to develop a viable short term and long term proposal that preserves coverage, strengthens and stabilizes the individual market and continues the transformation of healthcare delivery to improve quality and lower costs.

Q: What parts of the bill are you most concerned about?
The MLR has fans among policy experts, who say it pushes insurers to be more efficient and creates a better value. "But what's also bad is that when they come into Medicare, when they age into Medicare at 65, they're coming in in worse shape, they're coming in sicker, they're coming in using the health-care system more". Hutchinson said the Senate bill does provide some additional flexibility to states but does not go far enough in devolving authority.
If a neighbor has a better system, we are stupid (or rather our politicians are) if we don't adopt that system. "That is your responsibility". If the federal government pulls on the knot in one direction and states can't afford to equalize the dynamics in the other direction, hospitals, clinics and nursing homes, are left in the lurch.
