American Health Care Act Myth vs. Fact

Protections for those with preexisting conditions, essential health benefits, and continuous coverage are just some of the topics covered here

Coverage for Preexisting Conditions

Page 91 of the AHCA states: "Nothing in this Act shall be construed as permitting health insurance issuers to limit access to health coverage for individuals with preexisting conditions." Learn how the AHCA protects people with preexisting conditions here.

What Happens to Me Under the AHCA?

Whether you receive health care through your employer, Medicare, Medicaid, or the individual marketplace, you can learn exactly how the AHCA impacts you here.

The Patient and State Stability Fund

This $130 billion fund will help repair state markets damaged by Obamacare, and will be used to help stabilize costs as we transition to a patient-centered system. Learn how this fund is distributed here.

Addressing Obamacare's Medicaid Expansion

The AHCA returns regulatory power to the states -- where it belongs -- so that governors can run state-specific programs that best fit the needs of their constituents. Read about how the AHCA reforms Medicaid here.

Medicaid Per Capita Allotment Reform

Medicaid is currently on an unsustainable path. A per capita allotment reforms and protects the program and does not change Medicaid rules regarding access to care. Read about the specific reforms here.

Lastly, if you'd like to read the bill for yourself -- like I did -- you can find the full text here. I'll continue to speak with countless constituents and experts on these issues to better inform my decisions on this important matter.
