Over 420,000 Nevadans Could Be Hit By New Annual & Lifetime Limits

Jun 15, 2017

A new analysis this morning takes a hard look at what the Senate’s health care bill will do to insurance plans across the country — and the results are terrifying for Nevadans.

In Nevada alone, the bill Dean Heller is helping craft could hit over 240,000 people with annual limits and over 180,000 with lifetime limits. Nevadans could be forced to pay out-of-pocket for maternity care, mental health, prescription drugs — even treatment for cancer, reports the Center for American Progress.

American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp made the following statement:

“Make no mistake about it: Dean Heller wants to vote ‘yes’ on Trumpcare and he’s helping to draft the Senate’s bill. Heller and Senate Republicans are planning to decimate care for millions if just one or two states waive essential health benefits. The specter of lifetime and annual limits means hundreds of thousands of Nevadans could face a devastating choice: essential health care or bankruptcy.”
