Senator Cassidy press statement on healthcare block grant bill

Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy says that as a doctor of 25 years his goal is coverage for patients, that for his standard, the Kimmel test, where those who have need would have their needs addressed which cannot occur under the affordable care act, whereas a bill he sponsored with South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham would dole out money equally to states to do what would best fit. Cassidy says low income residents will have dollars to help them get insurance. They do not currently have. Cassidy says the bill does not want to hurt, saying no one complains about the children's health insurance program as an effective way to provide access to quality care for those in need. Cassidy says the bill maintains protections regardless of what states seek to have, insured by the Health and Human Services secretary. Cassidy says the bill preserves mental health parity, and that state innovations had been squashed by Obamacare such as the high risk pool in Maine.
