Who could lose from state health benefit limits

Here’s another daily reminder to CALL YOUR Senators about Healthcare:

Tell your Republican Senators to vote against the bill.
Tell your Democratic Senators to withhold consent on all Senate business until Republicans agree to hold a public hearing on TrumpCare.

If you think this won’t affect you because you have a job and healthcare — your healthcare and life may still be put in danger by Republican Senators to deliver a tax cut to the rich. Here’s why:

“Why it could happen: The Affordable Care Act bans lifetime and annual limits, but only for the 10 categories of “essential health benefits” defined in the law. If a state decides that, say, prescription drugs or maternity care aren’t essential benefits anymore, insurers can bring back annual and lifetime limits for them.

“Why it could spread beyond those states: Large employers that operate in several states can choose which state they want to use as the basis for their benefits. So if an employer operates in 15 states, and one of them has a waiver from ACA benefit rules, it can set all of its benefits based on that state.”
