[KTSA, 7/29/15] Health Care Issues

–  –  –

 Voted for a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which would allow insurance companies to drop coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and lifesaving cancer screenings, including mammograms  Voted for a bill that cut healthcare for a million people by redefining full-time work  Voted for the repeal of the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a Medicare costcontrol board, which could increase health care spending by billions of dollars Hurd voted for a full repeal of the ACA, which would allow insurance companies to drop coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, as well as for life-saving cancer screenings, including mammograms. Hurd also voted to increase the ACA’s definition of full-time work from 30 hours to 40, increasing the deficit by $53.2 billion and cutting healthcare for a million workers. In June 2015, Hurd voted to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a Medicare-Cost control board, which would “probably result in higher spending for the Medicare program in the years 2022 through 2025.”

Voted For A Full Repeal Of The ACA

Voted For A Full Repeal Of The ACA. In February 2015, Hurd voted for repealing the ACA. “The House voted … to abolish the 2010 health care law in Congress’ first repeal vote of the year … The House has voted more than 50 times to roll back all or portions of the law.” The bill passed 239 to 186.

[HR 596, Vote #58, 2/03/15; CQ News, 2/03/15] Vote Was Republicans 56th Attempt To Repeal Affordable Care Act. “In Tuesday’s repeal effort by House Republicans — their first of this Congress and their 56th overall — it became clear that they had succeeded at one thing: They had bored even themselves into a slumber.” [Washington Post, 2/03/15] Voted Against Prohibiting 56th Republican Vote To Repeal The ACA. In February 2015, Hurd voted against a motion that would prohibit Republicans 56th vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

The motion to recommit failed, 179 to 241. [HR 596, Vote #57, 2/03/15; Democratic Leadership Summary, 2/03/15] Repealing Health Care Reform Would Allow Insurance Companies to Drop Coverage for People with Pre-Existing Conditions. “Six months after the bills are enacted, health plans would be prohibited from excluding children who have preexisting conditions. In 2014, this prohibition would be extended to adults. That year, insurers would no longer be allowed to set annual limits, rescind coverage, or impose excessive waiting periods before coverage starts.” [Philadelphia Inquirer, 3/22/10] Pregnancy Was Considered A Pre-Existing Condition Prior To Passage Of The ACA. “But for now, Rohack is correct that pregnancy is considered a pre-existing condition and prevents many women from getting coverage if they seek insurance on the individual market,” the website explained.

[PolitiFact.com, 8/18/09] Voted To Let Insurance Companies Drop Coverage For Life-Saving Cancer Screenings Including Mammograms. The ACA “requires insurers to cover mammography, with no costsharing, every one to two years for women starting at age 40. Medicare fully pays for mammograms once every 12 months with no upper age limit.” [FactCheck.org, 10/21/13] Repeal Would Have Significant Costs for Texas. According to a 2013 staff report from the Energy

and Commerce committee, repeal for Texas would have meant:

 Drug costs for over 206,000 seniors would have been $338.4 million higher.

 357,000 young adults would not have had coverage through their parents’ plans.

 3.4 million women and over 1.8 million seniors and people with disabilities would not have had access to free preventive care.

 1.5 million people would not have received $167 million in rebates from their insurance companies.
