Chronic Illness Patients and No Options to Survive: CBO of Senate #AHCA Defi

The CBO does not include the millions of high-cost or pre-existing conditions as the uninsurable forecast of 23M..
The CBO states, “that the funding available to help provide coverage for those high-cost services would be insufficient in some cases even if a special program was designed for that purpose. Therefore, the agencies expect that insurance coverage for high-cost services would become extremely expensive in those areas, as it was in some places before the enactment of the ACA in 2010. A state is required to have mechanisms to reduce the chance of such outcomes as part of its waiver program under current law, but would not be under this legislation.”….AHCA gives states that accept waivers 2 Billion Dollars. The CBO quotes,”…states can use the funds for purposes other than health care”. CUTTING EHBS includes non-treatment of chronic illness and more

Bear with me on this complicated and urgent subject. It is important to understand the #AHCA contents, key concepts, and how it will cause mass death. This is factual. PLease refer to the documents for the specific legislation, also linked below. This legislation will affect you and your loved ones. It is worth reading as I break it down to basic understanding of the consequences of AHCA that is in process of becoming law THIS WEEK.

The Senates #AHCA, as suspected causes far more damage than the Congressional #AHCA Bill, to EVERY American.

~~~Senate released the “HR1628 Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017” {BCRA}, also called #trumpcare or the #AHCA, on Friday, 06/23/17. The CBO analysis released, 06/26/17. The horror of this legislation, it may become law by midweek.
What is the CBO?

The Congressional Budget Office, known as the “CBO” reports as a nonpartisan entity that provides long-term statistical data analysis for “congress”. Statistical data reports include cost benefits, analysis, estimates and deficits that range from agriculture, health care, taxes, veterans and more. Final legislation is typically driven by the CBO forecast.

CBOs Influence on #AHCA
**In the case of the HR1628 now known as the BCRA (#AHCA); the CBO Report analyzes past healthcare data, projecting current, proposed legislation and the financial overall (not inclusive) impact.
It seems that the CBO report is heavily weighted with many proposed bills, that will have any impact on the financial economy. Much like a home inspection is to a home seller. On a larger scale, that potentially affects significant population bases within the United States.

Summary of CBO (PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS)

CBO of the BCRA
In a nutshell the CBO briefly addresses pre-existing, chronic illness,high-cost patients and treatments, or those that would use the protections of the Essential Healthcare Benefits (EHBs).

*However, the CBO does not include the millions of high-cost or pre-existing conditions as the uninsurables.
The CBO states, “that the funding available to help provide coverage for those high-cost services would be insufficient in some cases even if a special program was designed for that purpose. Therefore, the agencies expect that insurance coverage for high-cost services would become extremely expensive in those areas, as it was in some places before the enactment of the ACA in 2010. A state is required to have mechanisms to cut the chance of such outcomes as part of its waiver program under current law, but would not be under this legislation.”
No mention of how, or if, the chronically ill can or will be insurable or have access to care.Stunning. Petrifying.
CBO OF

CBO Reveals NO SOLUTION FOR PRE EXISTING CONDITIONS OR TREATMENTS “NO PROTECTIONS UNDER #AHCA”

As discussed EHBs, will be annihilated. If you haven’t already reviewed what cuts will happen when EHBs get tossed. Please become familiar ASAP, as these cuts are diabolical.
HERE! HERE! HERE! HERE!

Hits home with a lot of persons who were born with defective genes. Leaving our children behind as orphans is a real fear with #AHCA

CBO FACT 2:
The CBO data omitted
millions more as uninsurable by dismissing chronic illnesses and treatment in the last analysis. Perhaps, they have accepted the idea of the chronic illness patients fate? WE HAVE NOT.

CBO CONCLUDES: State Bribery to End EHBs

The last CBO result concludes 23 Million will be uninsured. As stated above, the last numbers are perhaps double, due to unknown omission of Pre-Existing Conditions. The data seems flawed. **Of significance #BCHA or #AHCA gives states that accept waivers 2 Billion Dollars. The CBO quotes,”…states can use the funds for purposes other than health care”. Reportedly, taking effect July 2017-July 2019.

The Catch

Keep in mind, when accepting waivers, states will drop EHBs, and other current health care protections. The ending of EHBs means treatment for chronic conditions, prescriptions, maternity, basic blood work, and more are also no longer covered by insurance.

States receive “pass thru funds” of 2 Billion to end EHBs in 17-19

Senate Legislation #AHCA Confirms: $2 BILLION for Pre-Meditated Murder:
Page 136

Senate #AHCA Bribes states with 2 Billion to drop or change EHBs 2017-2019

Republican Tactic:

*Smokescreen-as usual. Do not divert your attention for ANYTHING. Healthcare and lives are at stake.

*The CBO score gives Mitch McConnell TWO HUNDRED BILLION “extra cash” (by not including the chronic illness patients in their last data) to bribe the few Republicans to flip their moderate or potential no to a yes vote. It happened with the congress vote, and it will happen again.

*Ironically, McConnell (R) KY: His life was saved from polio, by government funding for his treatment and rehabilitation. He is one of the MAIN leaders of this death pact, 2nd to Paul Ryan.

.
Mitch McConnell, Ringleader of the Death Spiral: Polio as a child, the government paid for his treatment and rehabilitation. His heart is damaged from the Polio, as killing millions of Americans he has no heart

More Cuts
There are MANY unjust and inhumane aspects of the BCRA (HR1628, #AHCA). Senate is determined to pass this atrocity as law, as I write this. The vast cuts range from qualified health plans (i.e., bare bone coverage) insane Medicaid cuts, employer-provided healthcare cuts, 58% actuaries (will define actuaries later), annual and lifetime limits, 5 times higher premiums for ages above 50, unlimited and uncapped premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses, elimination of cost-sharing, and the list goes on.

Fact: The Republican Party: Profit & Power: NOT PATIENTS

Kicking elderly out of nursing homes, children from Medicaid, disabled from access to medical care equals the exact amount, 33 Billion in TAX cuts for the wealthy

WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW?
We are running out of time, call, email, fax. Most importantly: Talk to your neighbor, family, friends, tell the, the facts. They will say, “I heard the opposite on the news, radio, internet, newspaper”. Redirect them to the facts. All legislation is on this site, and original sources cited. WORD Of MOUTH, In person, on the Phone (not texting). Sadly the technological world makes reality seem distant people need to actually understand facts, they do not understand the size as hitting them, until it’s to late. Again here are the contacts;

    REFLECTING
    Since trumps election I have continually pointed out the significance of #Cures, ACA, AHCA, EHBs, Here I Explain How #Cures led the groundwork for the current health-care crises. and more.

    While large organizations denied these facts to Chronic Illness Patients. See: HERE Am I surprised?
    After viewing republicans DENY cuts to Medicaid publicly; knowing they just sentenced children and the elderly to death. Yes, I believe it now.

    Sadly, after putting many of these pieces together and following the trail of money. I am not surprised by the actions of greed. An atrocity. They are all committed to Politics & Profit; not Patients. While innocent patients, who would do anything not to be sick, suffer. Our voices unheard.

Cures and the Ugly Truth
  • Status Quo and Status Quo Bias:

    The absolute definition of STATUS QUO; Patients that BELIEVE the current health care situation is *better than any change, therefore they refuse to accept truth, or facts–Even-when their life depends upon fact. They refuse to accept an alternative, the facts. If one attempts to present the facts, and disrupt their current world of life with the “status-quo”; they in fact, respond with vengeance, down playing and ostracize. This defines the status quo bias.

    Here we are, the week that we may see the end to life as we knew it on s federal level…AS A LAW. Continue reading “Chronic Illness Patients and No Options to Survive: CBO of Senate #AHCA Defi”

    Update on CMS re: DME (Infusion Pumps, supplies) per #cures

    I Published the information, about Policy Article A52507 in reference to CMS billing, codes, payment criteria, and general information of Infusion related DMEs and medication on 12/28/16. Since, Policy Article A52507, has been superseded with Revised Policy Article L33794, revisions begin implementation 01/01/17.

    Since last posting , CMS reports that the External INFUSION PUMPS – Policy Article (A52507) has been superseded. Reviewing the policy article from A52507, may give the reader a comparison to the implementation of the revised Policy Article L33794.

    Policy Article “Local Coverage Determination (LCD) External Infusion Pumps”(L33794) Revisions seem to supersede Policy Article A52507. Of note, Revisions;  JW Modifier instructions, Denial verbiage for JW Modifiers when coverage criteria is not met, and more.

    I would encourage any patient, or any person, to check the changes and decide if the changes will affect your current medical situation.

    My perspective, the #cures has moved forward. How this will affect DME needed for SCIG infusions, is not yet clear. However, as educated and concerned patients we certainly need to keep aware of what is occurring with the DME exclusions. As well, continue to check any strategic movement that may, or may not, affect the PID community.
