The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has significantly narrowed the disparities in coverage experienced by people of color, but those gains may be slowing, according to a new report. A new brief from the Kaiser Family Foundation looks at the disparity in health coverage by race and ethnicity between 2013 and 2017 using American Community Survey data. In 2013, 16.8% of the nonelderly population lacked insurance, with the scales tipping higher for people of color, KFF found. After t...

A federal appeals judge is allowing Democrats to join the legal defense of the ACA. A Texas judge ruled that the Affordable Care Act was no longer enforceable as Congress has repealed the penalty attached to its individual insurance mandate. As the Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 election, legislators began to set the stage for their entry into the law’s defense. In the order, Circuit Judge Leslie Southwick said the House’s participation is wort...

Todd Wilson has seen first-hand the positive feedback loop that comes from having more people who seek care at Leo Pocha Memorial Clinic walk in the door with health insurance. In 2015, before Medicaid expansion in Montana started, about 80 percent of those who sought care through the Helena Indian Alliance facility did not have health insurance coverage. Montana has historically had one of the highest rates of uninsured American Indians, reaching nearly 43 percent in 2009 before the passage of ...

Utah this week became the 35th state to approve expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, but advocates for the poor worry its unusual financing could set a dangerous precedent and lead to millions of people losing coverage across the country. That’s because the plan includes unprecedented annual limits on federal and state spending. Those restrictions would be a radical change for Medicaid. Since it began in 1966, the state-federal health program for low-income residents has been ...

Earlier this week, Democrats introduced a bill that would allow people ages 50 and over to buy in to Medicare coverage, and the plan is already getting pushback from payers and providers. Under the most recent proposal, people between the ages of 50 and 65 could buy a Medicare plan and qualify for subsidies and tax credits under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Medicare at 50 Act, led by Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., would fund enrollment through premiums and would eventually lower costs for ...

Healthcare remains a key priority for Democrats in Congress—and they’re now putting a spotlight on so-called “junk” insurance plans touted by the Trump administration. The Department of Health and Human Services has expanded access to short-term health plans and association health plans as alternatives to coverage found on the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges, but these plans have been criticized for skimpy coverage and misleading marketing. On Thursday, four Democra...

Utah’s state House has approved legislation that would scale back the number of people eligible for the voter-mandated Medicaid expansion. Voters in the state approved Medicaid expansion in the 2018 election, and under the Affordable Care Act that would allow the state’s program to add people making up to 138% of the poverty level to the rolls. However, the newly passed House tweak would cut that to 100% of the poverty level. Such a change would need to be approved by the Centers for...

The Trump administration's actions to cripple the Affordable Care Act haven't notably changed the number of uninsured people, according to the Commonwealth Fund, but they have weakened protections for those that have insurance. About 12% of Americans were uninsured in 2018, according to the Fund's biennial survey—statistically unchanged from 2016, the last time the survey was taken. However, more of those who did have insurance were considered underinsured, meaning their out-of...
