“Reduce the value of coverage for consumers, which WILL significantly increase out-of-pocket expenses. Increasing financial risks associated with high medical costs”(quoted from Trumpcare) Respond NOW: Deadline 3/7

Healthcare coverage cuts for consumers, increases in out-of-pocket expenses, thus increasing their exposure to financial risks associated with high medical costs and Pre existing conditions exclusions contact http://www.regulations.gov BEFORE 3/7/17 and say NO

Direct link to CMS-9929-P https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=CMS-2017-0021-0002

TELL THEM NO.  Updated 2/18/17, Directing correct link to tell CMS/PAUL RYAN/GOP/DEPARTMENT  OF HEALTH THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT THE PROPOSAL TO REDUCE HEALTH CARE, RAISE COSTS,  AND ELIMINATE PRE EXISTING & MORE.

The Administration has provided only a 21-day comment period, on the proposed “Trumpcare” an extreme shortened timeframe for public comment,  from standard periods for rules of this significance. Below you will find the document, embedded within the document, there are many changes that will adversely affect all American Citizens and their Healthcare. The proposal titled, “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Market Stabilization”, however known as “CMS-9929-P” (aka TRUMPCARE).

Of Note: Shift of Healthcare to Insurers (Health Plans), adversely affecting ALL patient populations, do NOT be fooled by the “Exchange Speak”. As ALL Insurers uniformly follow CMS, notably, this document does not exclude any other type of plans. The Authors of this plan have–AND WILL–institute this as Law, unless the Public voices concerns prior to MARCH 7, 2017. There are multiple false statements, and studies reported within this plan, and links are provided for the reader to arrive at their own decision. Many areas of concerns, the two that I am focusing on are the admitted rise in costs while decrease in coverage, pg. 7 & 74. Additionally, Pre-Existing Conditions are ON THE TABLE for denial of coverage, delay of coverage, underwriting, additional costs, and more, page 41. The file is the complete proposal.

Trump Administration intends to reduce the value of OF coverage for consumers, and increasing Out OF Pocket Expenses, and other essential limits
Of extreme significance, denial of Pre Existing Conditions by insurers are addressed, the Pre Existing Clause is multifaceted, and will negatively affect millions of people.
