Nancy Tyler: Remember how the US House wanted to gut our health care, WV budget last year?

By Nancy Tyler

One year ago, on May 4, the House of Representatives passed the so-called “American Health Care Act,” or AHCA. The health care repeal bill would have cut coverage, increased costs and eliminated protections for tens of thousands of West Virginians. The bill also would have imposed an “age tax,” letting insurers charge people over 50 five-times more for coverage, and put the health of one in five Americans on Medicaid — including seniors, children and people with disabilities — in jeopardy.

Advocate: Children should take advantage of preventative healthcare

The issue brief, published by West Virginia Kids Count in partnership with West Virginians for Affordable Health Care, showed nearly 98 percent of West Virginia children were covered by health insurance in 2016, compared to 95.5 percent in 2015 and 90.7 percent in 2008.
