Impact of Medicaid Caps in Nevada

Executive Summary Medicaid caps would severely impact spending on home and community-based services (HCBS) in Nevada, where more than 11,000 people rely on these services to remain in their homes, avoid institutionalization, and participate in their communities. If Medicaid caps similar to those in the Republican healthcare bill had been enacted in the decade of the 2000s, limits on Federal reimbursements would probably have caused Nevada to drastically limit the growth of its home and community-based services programs.

Sustained Action Needed Over the Recess to Protect our Health and Long Term Care

As you know, Senate Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) postponed plans to vote on the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) this week due to a lack of support (he needs at least 50 Republican Senators). However, he plans to bring up the bill as soon as possible after Senators return from the Independence Day recess on July 10. It is unclear if McConnell will wait for a new CBO score on a revised bill or try to quickly hold a vote. The House plans to pass the Senate bill without any changes. It will then go to the President�s desk. Unless we stop it.

House Health Care Bill Ends Medicaid as We Know It

by Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

The American Health Care Act (AHCA), which the House passed on May 4, would radically restructure Medicaid�s federal financing and effectively end the Affordable Care Act�s (ACA) Medicaid expansion, reducing enrollment by 14 million people by 2026 and cutting federal spending by $839 billion over ten years. The bill�s other Medicaid changes would cut another $19 billion over ten years. All told, the AHCA would have a devastating impact on health care for over 70 million people who rely on Medicaid, including over 30 million children and millions of seniors, people with disabilities, pregnant women, and low-income adults.

The House Passed Health Bill Cannot Be Fixed

Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

This CBPP article explains "The House-passed health bill, the American Health Care Act, or AHCA, slashes programs that help people get health coverage, using most of the savings to pay for tax cuts for high-income households and corporations. The bill would effectively end the Affordable Care Act�s (ACA) Medicaid expansion for low-income adults; cut and radically restructure Medicaid funding for seniors, people with disabilities, and families with children; increase premiums, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs for millions of people with individual market coverage; and give millionaires tax cuts averaging more than $50,000 per year, partly at the expense of the Medicare trust fund."
