Cassidy Explains Plan to Maintain Health Coverage and Lower Premiums


WASHINGTON— Last night, US Senator Bill Cassidy, MD (R-LA) spoke on the Senate floor to explain provisions in Cassidy-Collins, his Obamacare replacement plan, that would maintain and expand health care coverage and bring down premiums.


“We have an approach to do this called—some call it auto-enrollment—I call it making it easy. And by this way, we can increase coverage, achieve the goals of President Trump to lower the premiums. We are using something which is already used in Medicare and 401(k) plans and again we make it easy to enroll.


“There is a lot of conservative support for this sort of concept. First let me just say, coverage is important.”
