In America 2017, where proper health insurance is guaranteed to almost nobody, many cities, counties and school districts are finding a way to beat the system.
Medicinal drugs are often much cheaper overseas — up to 80 percent, in some cases — so employees are getting the help they need from their employers, municipalities or even their counties, in procuring medication at these highly reduced costs.
Doctors, hospitals, and insurers have come together to fight the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The bill was passed yesterday in the House of Representatives despite the unity of these groups, who all issued statements condemning the House's move.
“The bill passed by the House today will result in millions of Americans losing access to quality, affordable health insurance and those with pre-existing health conditions face the possibility of going back to the time when insurers could charge them premiums that made access to coverage out of the question,” American Medical Association President Andrew W. Gurman, MD, said.
