Sharp premium increases for older adults, many of whom could finally afford medications and treatment thanks to the Affordable Care Act, would cause many seniors to lose their insurance.
Unlike the individual mandate in the ACA, the money from the late-enrollment surcharge would go to insurance companies and not the government.
In an unusual and perhaps intentional move, the Republican healthcare proposal was released prior to the Congressional Budget Office ('CBO'), a non-partisan body that performs independent analysis on budgetary and economic issues, conducting a full analysis of the bill.
"We know that over 80 percent of the Coloradans that are covered under the Affordable Care Act have at least a part-time job", he points out. Others maintain more than 24 million Americans will lose their coverage under the bill as its now proposed.
Can someone can wait until they are sick to buy insurance, knowing that they would have to pay a 30 percent fine?

That will set up the obvious WrestleMania match for the SmackDown tag team titles, but boy was it lackluster and forgettable. Coming out of the Royal Rumble it seemed as if Orton and then WWE Champion John Cena would face each other at Mania .
Her organization announced last week that if the Trump measure becomes law, it not only would eliminate essential health care benefits - particularly lower costs - but would shift financial risk back to consumers.
Price said that the Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) calculations, showing how millions of Americans would be made worse off under the bill, looks at "just one portion of the plan".
Some big insurers dropped popular plans, leaving those seeking individual coverage fewer options.People in about a third of US counties had to turn to a single insurer if they purchased coverage on health care exchanges set up under the Affordable Care Act. But I do expect some change with the legislation. Granted, the GOP plans call for replacing the subsidies with tax credits. Their leader on the issues, House Speaker Paul Ryan, may be trying to deliver a slick rollout of a new health care plan, but Ryan's own small government philosophy is getting in his way.
It is entirely possible - indeed probable - that without the Obamacare subsidies for low-income families, it will not be financially possible for many parents who do not have employer-provided insurance to purchase health insurance for their families. The result? People who think insurance is too expensive and don't expect to need it are unlikely to sign up for a health plan.
The bill being passed in its current form is no sure thing, although the final form of legislation signed into law is likely to have far-reaching consequences for low-income Americans, the USA budget deficit, and future support for the Republican party. "I very seriously doubt the initial bill is the final bill".
