Republican bill generates unity patients hate it, docs hate it, hospitals hate it, insurers hate it

It turns out that Donald Trump and Paul Ryan really are capable of bridging divides and bringing the nation together.

It is a rare unifying moment. Hospitals, doctors, health insurers and some consumer groups, with few exceptions, are speaking with one voice and urging significant changes to the Republican health care legislation that passed the House on Thursday.


What does the AMA think of the latest Trumpcare bill?

“None of the legislative tweaks under consideration changes the serious harm to patients and the health care delivery system if AHCA passes. Proposed changes to the bill tinker at the edges without remedying the fundamental failing of the bill – that millions of Americans will lose their health insurance as a direct result of this proposal.


What does the AARP say about Medicaid cuts in the bill?

The impact of such a huge loss of federal Medicaid funds on people with disabilities and poor seniors will be devastating—especially for 11 million Medicare beneficiaries who are also eligible for Medicaid.
