There is a lot of fear speech about the replacement for ObamaCare/ACA. So much fear that many of my friends and associates have gained weight, have high blood pressure or their symptoms are off the scale.
I have always found that knowledge, accurate information is the foundation for a good treatment plan. I want to reduce the fear with information. What you do about this information is up to you.
This is just a quick look using publicly viable sources and is my attempt at explaining what I currently understand to be elements of a conservative health care replacement for ObamaCare. I have tried to be objective. I have gone to known conservative think tanks, two non-partial think tank, two politicians websites and publications that monitor the healthcare industry.
ObamaCare/ACA does have a mental health component. I didn't seen anything in my research that talked about either restricting or expanding access to mental health services. I'm going to keep monitoring and let you know of any additional information.
