Posted on 11/17/2019 3:00:54 PM PST by karpov
One big chunk of her plan would reverse some Obamacare regulations established by the Trump administration. She would return funding to Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health groups that also offer abortion services, for example. She would restore funding to publicize insurance options. She would eliminate new requirements on Medicaid beneficiaries, such as work requirements and premiums. And she would change rules to restrict the sale of so-called short-term health plans, which dont follow all the Affordable Care Acts rules.
She would restore an Obama-administration policy that provided civil rights protections to transgender patients and women with a history of abortions, among other groups.
She would seek to offer subsidies to new groups of people to help them buy health insurance under Obamacare, including legal noncitizen immigrants and the families of people who can obtain coverage for only themselves through work.
She would also seek to add a dental benefit to the Medicare program, by reinterpreting language in the statute that says dental care can be covered only if it is medically necessary. And she would change aspects of the Medicaid program, making it easier for states to offer coverage to more people, even if it will cost the government more.
She would write new rules for a 2008 law that requires insurers to cover mental health care in the same way they cover care for physical ailments. The goal is to expand coverage for mental illness and substance abuse across different types of insurance.
Ms. Warrens regulatory agenda is perhaps most aggressive in its efforts to limit drug prices. She proposes that the federal government employ never-before-used authority to rescind existing patents on medications that were developed with the help of government funding.

Here are some more things to fully cover on Warren’s government health plan for taxpayers to fund:
Coverage for men who want to change hair color or cover gray or white.
Why? Studies show low self esteem, self image and inability to form a mutual love relationship is hard on a man’s health.
Coverage for men who need help fighting baldness. Biden was poster child for hair plugs. All plugs,implants, laser or other treatments and lotions for hair replacement will be fully covered (for same reasons as hair color above).
Any male or female who requires treatment for physical injuries entailed in any form of sexual activity. John F. Kennedy severely injured his back in a tryst with a young White House intern and had to wear a back brace and have treatments for severe pain. Pre-existing WWII PT-109 back trouble? Yes, but this made it a worse problem.
Treatment or prescriptions for headaches, nausea or dyspepsia caused by broadcasts of political candidate debates, speeches or interviews as well as media puff pieces or slander fests.
We need to convince foxy haunches that it’s a good idea to ‘back-up’ into a wood chipper
So she wants us l, the US taxpayer, to pay for legal noncitizen immigrants - like H1B and H4EAD Indians. No thank you. Remember in ObamaCare, this trash was exempted. Not only do they take our jobs, but we have to pay for their healthcare as well under her plan.
Lizzy Warpath again. Take your time of life via taxation. She owns you. Who are these megalomaniacs?
