Cuomo: NY state will keep Affordable Care Act protections

A recent Congressional Budget Office analysis found that the latest version of House Republicans' proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would leave 23 million more Americans uninsured that current law by 2026. That's the scenario state senators envisioned when they pushed through SB562 this week, a bill that proposes a universal health system in California that would ensure that every resident would have access to health care, regardless of wealth or employment status, age or pre-existing medical condition.

The 10 categories of essential health benefits are a major tenet of the Affordable Care Act, which requires participating insurers to provide coverage for each category.

Under existing state law, DFS will also dictate that healthcare providers offer coverage for contraceptive drugs and devices without co-pay, coinsurance or deductible, regardless of what happens to Obamacare, which now remains in effect.

Or put another way: If you're one of the people who already have health care coverage with the ACA and are happy with the benefits and services and you believe the Liar-in-Chief Donald Trump that the non-existent Republican replacement for the ACA will be better, you still have more to learn about Republican lies and obstruction.
