House Health Care Bill Retains ACA Provision for Foster Youth

On Monday, the American Health Care Act was introduced in the House of Representatives as a replacement for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). PPC expressed concerns regarding many of the bill’s provisions and the effect they would have on our nation’s children, including a per capita cap for Medicaid, rolling back Medicaid eligibility for children based on family income, and reducing the federal share of Medicaid expansion costs – all of which would limit federal funding and leave states at risk if costs for services grow more than inflation.

One bright spot? Continued coverage for young adults aging out of foster care. As noted previously, another aspect of the ACA that affects kids was the ability of children to stay on their parent’s insurance plans until age 26, which also made Medicaid available to foster youth until the same age. This provision was included in the American Health Care Act as introduced Monday, and has so far survived mark up by the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

PPC will continue to monitor the bill, any amendments, and their effect on children and youth in Pennsylvania. To view the bill text, click here.

Payne Springs University's Gravatar Rolling back Medicaid per capita cap for the children who are based on family income might put the nation in seriously bad consequences. As I student of health and medical sciences from Payne Springs University I believe the regulatory authorities must come up with a more finite and concrete solution in this regard.
