The Better Care Reconciliation Act would cause 22 million Americans to lose health coverage by 2026, according a Congressional Budget Office review of the draft legislation. Modern Healthcare yesterday highlighted 13 key findings from the CBO's analysis. Here are 12 more takeaways from the CBO.1. Medicare would spend $42 billion more over 10 years in disproportionate-share payments to hospitals due to an increase in uncompensated care for low-income patients.2.
1. 22 million fewer Americans would have health insurance in 2026 compared with current law, slightly less than the estimated 23 million who could lose coverage under the House GOP bill (the American Health Care Act).2. 15 million more people would be uninsured in 2018, largely due to elimination of the Affordable Care Act's tax penalty for not having insurance.3. An estimated 49 million people would be uninsured by 2026, compared with 28 million under current law.4.
Healthcare providers and insurers had differing reactions to the Senate Republican bill unveiled last week to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The "discussion draft" draft bill bombed with healthcare providers, while some insurers reveled at the offering of cost-sharing reduction payments and tens of billions in temporary reinsurance funding. But it may not matter what industry stakeholders think. They say GOP lawmakers didn't ask for their input.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
