Harborview could lose $627 million annually under GOP health care bill

Harborview Medical Center in Seattle could lose $627 million in annual federal money by 2026 if the health care act passed by the House of Representatives becomes law in its current form, the hospital's executive director said Friday. The bill removes many of the features of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Paul Hayes made the statement during joint press conference with Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.

Hayes said the projected lost revenue comes from a combination of several proposed cuts including cuts to Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements.

"We are concerned, very concerned, about the reduction of health insurance coverage for those who have had coverage for the first time in their lives under the Affordable Care Act," said Hayes. "They will likely need to find, or delay, or avoid providing and having routine health care (without the ACA).
