Trumpcare Means Higher Costs for Less Coverage
Under Trumpcare, Millions of Americans Would Have High Deductibles or High Premiums In Return for Less Health Care
Washington, D.C. – Trumpcare will devastate millions of Americans by saddling them with higher health care costs through steep deductibles or sky-high premiums for health insurance.
How much higher could deductibles go? The deductible for an average benchmark plan would go from $3,500 to $6,000, and would cover far fewer services.
But for many middle class families, it gets worse. The CBO report found that many would have to make an impossible choice between a plan with lower premiums and a massive deductible that won’t cover key health care, or sky-high premiums that will be unaffordable for the vast majority of Americans. That’s because Republicans have tied the value of their tax credits to low-value, bargain basement plans that let insurance companies pay less while patients pay more.
Higher deductibles and unaffordable premiums? What did Trump say about that?
The Trumpcare bargain: Higher costs for less coverage and worse care. Unless you’re one of the 400 wealthiest people in the country getting a $7 million tax cut instead.
