Trump made clear he is not unilaterally suspending the Affordable Care Act.
It could take several years to replace the health care law. A repeal of the act could affect 2.7 million NY residents, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
This study followed changes in insurance coverage, the number of patients receiving care at these centers, and 8 measures of quality of care among approximately 20 million people per year at 1057 community health centers between 2011 and 2014.
Recent news reports tell of a few Republicans worrying that repeal might be courting more trouble than their colleagues realize. Nationwide, this came down to one life saved nationwide for every 455 people who obtained coverage through the expansions. Almost 60,000 residents across the 11 counties represented by Reed could lose their health care, Cuomo's data shows. However, in many states the ACA is working for beneficiaries, insurers and providers. That provision is likely to go away under a replacement plan, meaning that if you're covered under your parents' insurance - or your adult kids are covered on yours - you'd have to make other arrangements. He expects these would be continued, but there is little agreement on what else to include.
Reed acknowledged he was aware the Patient Freedom Act sponsored by Sens.
Although details of the two senators' bill have not yet been announced, Collins said it would give more power to the states on health care policy and increase access to affordable health insurance.
Most expansion states that have released their proposed budgets do allocate more money for Medicaid. With a slim majority of just 52 seats, Senate Republicans don't have the necessary 60 votes that they would need in order to combat a filibuster and fully repeal the law. It should be accessible and affordable, he added.

The exchange marks the peaceful transfer of power that President Obama has preached since Trump's election. Ivanka Trump is taking her role as first daughter pretty seriously - just ask her dad, aka Donald Trump.
The quartet's proposal could be crucial in the Senate, which Republicans control 52-48.
Regardless, President Donald Trump wasted no time putting pressure on Congress to move ahead with the repeal effort.
"It will be important that we be careful as we do that", said Pence, earlier this month. "Make America sick again, is that what the Republicans want to do?"
REED ALSO PLANS to reintroduce his Hand Up Act, which died at the end of the 114th Congress. They don't know what the risks are going to be, and it does look like they're not going to support the marketplace like they have in the past.
King County Executive Dow Constantine says repealing the ACA means 200,000 people in King County will lose their health insurance.
"I'm pleased to see a growing consensus among members of both the Senate and the House that we must fix the ACA and provide reforms at almost the same time that we repeal the law in order to protect families who rely on the program and to give insurers time to transition to a new marketplace that is based on more choices for consumers", Collins said.
Health savings accounts, depending on how they're structured, can help wealthy people however.
The goal of these programs should be to get people out of poverty, Reed said.
