In just 8 short days, the new majority in the Republican House will repeal the Medical Health Insurance reforms that were passed only last year.

Here are the current benefits that will be eradicated by Republicans.

Children with pre-existing conditions, will not be covered. Parents MUST pay out of pocket so their children will live.

Adults, with pre-existing conditions, are out of luck. Might as well put a bullet in your head. No one will insure you.

Businesses with fewer than 50 employees will lose tax credits covering up to 50% of employee premiums. Return to NO INSURANCE for employees of small businesses.

Seniors lose their rebate filling the so-called “donut hole” in Medicare drug coverage, which severely limits prescription medication coverage expenditures over $2,700. Starting last Saturday, 50 percent of the donut hole was to be filled.

The cut-off age for young adults to continue to be covered by their parents’ health insurance drops from the age 27, back down to high school graduation. Most youth can not go to doctors when sick, thereby contaminating the rest of us.

Lifetime caps on the amount of insurance an individual can have will no longer be banned. Starting with the Republican passage, when an insurer arbitrarily thinks they paid too much on you… they can drop your policy.

Gone is the temporary high-risk pool that was set up to cover adults with pre-existing conditions. Health care exchanges were supposed to eliminate the program in 2014. Now, with no exchanges and no pool, the high risk do not get insurance. This raises your rates to pay for them.

Gone are all the new plans which had to cover checkups and other preventative care without co-pays. Now, if you don’t have excessive cash, you just have to get sick, instead of going to the doctor.

Starting with Republican passage, insurance companies can cut a person who’s paid their premiums religiously, just because they got sick..

No longer will insurers have to reveal how much money is spent on overhead. “I’m sorry we have to raise your rates, Mr Anderson, but we need to recoup the $4 billion we spent upon the last election.”

Gone is the requirement that any new plan must now implement an appeals process for all coverage determinations and claims. Insurance companies can again change your coverage at will, whether or not you approve, and decide at whim, not to cover your medicines that they’ve covered most of your life.

Gone will be the 10% tax on tanning salons. It will become cheaper to get melanoma. Yeah!

Gone will be the new screening procedures that were implemented to eliminate health insurance fraud and waste. If the Republican bill is passed, waste and fraud will again be encouraged within the insurance companies, with customers footing the bill.

Gone will be the Medicare protections that were extended to small rural hospitals and other health care facilities that happen to have only a small number of Medicare patients. Those small rural hospitals will have to close.

Gone will the the requirement that Non-profit Blue Cross organizations must be required to maintain a medical loss ratio — money spent on procedures over money incoming — of 85 percent or higher to take advantage of IRS tax benefits.

Chain restaurants will again not be required to provide a “nutrient content disclosure statement” alongside their items. Never again should you expect to see calories listed both on in-store and drive-through menus of fast-food restaurants.

Gone will be that portion of the bill which establishes a temporary program for companies that provide early retiree health benefits for those ages 55‐64, in order to help reduce the often-expensive cost of that coverage.

The Secretary of Health and Human Services has set up a new Web site to make it easy for Americans in any state to seek out affordable health insurance options The site also includes helpful information for small businesses. That will be eradicated. You will not be able to find, much less buy, any cheap insurance.

The two‐year temporary credit (up to a maximum of $1 billion) which was placed in the bill to encourage investment in new therapies for the prevention and treatment of diseases,….. will be cut… No new therapies in our distant future!

These new reforms that were part of the Republican alternative to health care at one point, will be gone for good, if Republican get their way.

Just when it looked like the middle class could at least take care of themselves medically, the Republicans yank the floor out from under them.

The bill is a short worded statement that repeals the law signed last March 23.

It does not have any other planks. It is a dumb bill; even Boehner himself thinks and publicly said so.

But….. it is on the floor of the House… .. anyway……
