Activism: Saving The ACA: Graham-Cassidy is Worse Than We Could Have Imagined

1000% increase in health insurance premiums for 60 year olds?



It’s for you!


Graham-Cassidy Legislation Threatens Affordable Coverage for Older Americans Lina Walker, Jane Sung, Claire Noel-Miller, and Olivia Dean The Graham-Cassidy (GC) bill, as proposed on September 13, 2017, threatens to make health care unaffordable and inaccessible for millions of older Americans. The bill eliminates two sources of financial assistance – premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions – critical to ensuring that low- to moderate-income older adults are able to afford the coverage they need. For a 60-year-old earning $25,000 a year, premiums and out-of-pocket costs could increase by as much as $16,174 a year if they wanted to keep their current coverage. i The bill may also allow states to charge older adults age 50-64 significantly higher premiums than under current law on the basis of their age by waiving federal protections that limit the practice known as age rating.
