Affordable Care Act Replacement Bill

Affordable Care Act Replacement Bill

Affordable Care Act Replacement Bill (Waivers denying health insurance coverage for some pre-existing conditions).

 Representative Tom MacArthur Town Hall Meeting 

Representative Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) held a town hall meeting in Willingboro, New Jersey. In the almost five-hour and sometimes heated meeting, many constituents asked questions about an amendment the congressman helped draft in the House-passed Republican Affordable Care Act replacement bill. The amendment would allow states to apply for waivers denying health insurance coverage for some pre-existing conditions, and permit states to opt out of providing pregnancy health benefits and mental health services.
