Guest opinion: Congress should extend behavioral health care
At the same time, health insurance premiums for most older Americans not yet on Medicare are expected to increase because of what's known as "age-rating".
Rep. Tom Cole represents cities like Norman, Lawton, Ada, Duncan and Moore, which are all in his fourth congressional district. "Last year, [there were] 225 counties in America where you only have one insurance option on the exchange".
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the bill would ultimately lower premiums by double digits. Over 17 million low-income seniors, children and adults with disabilities rely on Medicaid for critical health care and long-term services and supports. Others maintain more than 24 million Americans will lose their coverage under the bill as its now proposed.
So if you are older, or plan on getting older, beware of the Republican replacement for the ACA. The GOP credits, by contrast, are based primarily on age and do not vary according to the cost of insurance in an area, so in low-priced parts of the country they will go farther than in very high-cost areas. "I don't think this is a single piece of legislation". Likewise, if you don't pay income tax, the tax credit is worthless.

It is entirely possible - indeed probable - that without the Obamacare subsidies for low-income families, it will not be financially possible for many parents who do not have employer-provided insurance to purchase health insurance for their families.
I consider myself a Republican and a capitalist, but I have a hard time thinking of health care the same way as making cars, homes or refrigerators; in other words as a business.
Then there are the tea party Republicans, who'd like to abolish entitlement programs and certainly don't want tax credits for lower-income people of the kind in the Republican plan.
At her age I'm pretty sure my granddaughter doesn't need health insurance for her end-of-life needs.
