WZON-AM interview with James Myall concerning CBPP report on AHCA impacts on rural areas and seniors

May 18, 2017

Don Cookson, host of WZON-AM’s The Pulse Morning Show, interviewed James Myall about new analysis from the national Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) which demonstrates that the American Health Care Act (AHCA), as passed by the US House of Representatives, would undermine every part of the health care system in rural areas including most of Maine. By rolling back Medicaid expansion, allowing age-based price discrimination by insurers, and allowing states to waive requirements to cover pre-existing conditions, the AHCA threatens the health of tens of thousands of rural Mainers, as well as the finances of Maine hospitals.
