Rand Paul Introduces His Own Obamacare Replacement Plan – Read All 4 Pages Here!

U.S. Senator and physician Rand Paul introduced S. 222, the Obamacare Replacement Act, to provide Congress with a health care plan grounded in broadly supported conservative reforms that is ready for an immediate vote after Obamacare is repealed. Dr. Rand Paul’s proposal would expand access to higher-quality, lower-cost health care for more Americans, regardless of medical history.

“Getting government out of the American people’s way and putting them back in charge of their own health care decisions will deliver a strong, efficient system that doesn’t force them to empty out their pockets to cover their medical bills,” said Dr. Rand Paul. “There is no excuse for waiting to craft an alternative until after we repeal Obamacare, and the Obamacare Replacement Act charts a new path forward that will insure the most people possible at the lowest price.”

The Obamacare Replacement Act empowers the American people to: 1.) Choose inexpensive insurance free of government dictates; 2.) Save unlimited amounts in a health savings account (HSA) and have wider options for using those funds; 3.) Buy insurance across state lines; and 4.) Join together in voluntary associations to gain the leverage of being part of a large insurance pool.

NEWS ALERT! Breaking: GOP Pulls Healthcare Bill

Dr. Rand Paul has led the charge to replace Obamacare at the same time it is repealed, and he has been joined in calling for simultaneous action by fellow Republicans including President Trump and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

Dr. Rand Paul’s Obamacare Replacement Act, S. 222:

Legalizes Inexpensive Insurance Plans:

  • Ensures that Americans can purchase the health insurance coverage that best fits their needs.
  • Eliminates Obamacare’s essential health benefits requirement, along with other restrictive coverage and plan requirements, to once again make low-cost insurance options available to American consumers.

Protects Individuals with Pre-Existing Conditions:

  • Provides a two-year open-enrollment period under which individuals with pre-existing conditions can obtain coverage.
  • Restores HIPAA pre-existing conditions protections. Prior to Obamacare, HIPAA guaranteed that those in the group market could obtain continuous health coverage regardless of preexisting conditions.

Helps More People Save To Buy Health Insurance and Cover Medical Costs:

  • Incentivizes savings by authorizing a tax credit (up to $5,000 per taxpayer) for individuals and families that contribute to HSAs.
  • Removes the annual cap on HSAs so individuals can make unlimited contributions.
  • Allows HSA funds to be used to purchase insurance, cover premiums, and more easily afford a broader range of health-related expenses, including prescription and OTC drugs, dietary supplements, nutrition and physical exercise expenses, and direct primary care, among others. 

Guarantees Fair Tax Treatment of Health Insurance:

  • Equalizes the tax treatment of the purchase of health insurance for individuals and employers by allowing individuals to deduct the cost of their health insurance from their income and payroll taxes.
  • Frees more Americans to purchase and maintain insurance apart from their work status.
  • Does not interfere with employer-provided coverage for Americans who prefer those plans.

Helps Individuals Join Together to Purchase Insurance:

  • Expands Association Health Plans (AHPs) to allow small business owners and individuals to band together across state lines through their membership in a trade or professional association to purchase health coverage for their families and employees at a lower cost.
  • Also allows individuals to pool together through any organization to purchase insurance.
  • Widens access to the group market and spreads out the risk, enhancing the ability of individuals and small businesses to decrease costs, increase administrative efficiencies, and further protect those with pre-existing conditions.

Allows the Purchase of Insurance Across State Lines:

  • Creates an interstate market that allows insurers who are licensed to sell policies in one state to offer them to residents of any other state.

Increases State Medicaid Flexibility:

  • Enables states to fully exercise current flexibilities afforded to them through Medicaid waivers for creating innovative state plan designs.

Empowers Physicians:

  • Allows non-economically aligned physicians to negotiate for higher quality health care for their patients.
  • Amends the Internal Revenue Code to allow a physician a tax deduction equal to the amount such physician would otherwise charge for charity medical care or uncompensated care due to bad debt, limited to 10% of a physician’s gross income for the taxable year.

  1. I doubt this bill get serious consideration as it is not complicated enough to allow legislators to setup kickback schemes with major healthcare industries.

    • Gordon, Sadly you are probably correct. Still, we can hope that Congress will pass a bill that benefits the citizens and not just the members of Congress.

      • Vote all the Low Life’s OUT of Congress so We The People Can Get what we Need, But Remember They were suppose to take care of us with Social Security,That they took from us, And We Didn’t even have a choice ! But the Thieves Couldn’t keep their hand’s out of OUR MONEY ! But Welfare, Has NEVER Came Close to needing Money !

          • You are exactly right. If you are not a producer,then you should not be able to have a say in government. In the beginning, the founding fathers required you to be a property owner to vote,which is about the same.

          • That’s correct, Mr. Bock. Contact your Representative and both of your Senators and tell them. Flood their emails and other social media sites

    • Amen. Like the Federal income tax code, making it simple would eliminate too many powerful special interests – it will never happen.

    • You haven’t seen the bill after a thousand amendments. This is how ACA started and by the time all was said it was 10000 pages.

      • You are obviously an idiot. 1) S.222 is not just 4 pages long. 2) Obamacare was not 4 pages long either. 3) S.222 is 149 pages long. 4)Obamacare was a lot longer than 149 pages when it was introduced; try 1,990. You’re a fucking retarded shit.

    • Wow; Gordon you have expertly exposed the true character, or the lack thereof, of the Democrat Congress members, and maybe some of those others!!!!

  2. I would like to have a copy of this bill and the one Paul Ryan is trying to pass so I could compare the two bills This one seems like it is a very good bill One thing I would like to see is a bill that includes a law suite cap that people could get when they sue that would bring down Drs malpractice insurance so they could lower their prices.

  3. Why do none of the plans mention that they apply to congress and their staff? Ocare excludes congress and staff which is why dems don’t care about the impact.

  4. love Rand Paul’s health care bill. It is simple and precise although I agree Congress should not get special treatment

  5. I agree with this but would also like to see mental health specifically covered – it is no different than any other invisible condition like diabetes, heart, etc. I want people to be able to choose EITHER health insurance OR a health care plans. They are very different and the cost of thue insurance is much lower than group health care. People need to be able to make an informed choice.

    • Tony I think Senator Paul is right. However I have to agree with Steve Tucker. I think he understands too well that the Senate will never pass this. What started the Tea Party? Obamacare and what will bring resurgence? I think making sure Speaker Oauk Ryan keeps his word on phase 2 and three.

  6. This bill shows “common sense” and is a much better starting point than the complicated bill put out by Paul Ryan. All congress people should have to have this coverage as they are no better than an other citizen. No more free ride for congress members. Give this draft to President Trump.

  7. What has me worried is we’ll get back to affordable health care? Just can’t remember when it’s been affordable. We sure can’t start out with premiums where there at Ins. companies will have to have a new premium structure. Don’t see them all of a sudden offering cheap affordable Ins.

    • And that is the problem with healthcare having a profit motive. Health Insurance companies aren’t in the business of providing health care they are in the business of making money. The bottom line is sacred, so any plan that goes back to the way it was or provides “market based solutions” is going to by expensive.

    • Competition, sir. Competition. If insurers want consumers’ business they will compete for it by offering the best quality at the best price. It works in every other business.

      • Businesses do Not “compete” in the way a layman sees the term “Compete” . It’s more of a Collaboration than a competition . One company collaborates with three or more major companies to raise or lower prices with agreement with the others to either increase in increments with the others or lower in the same way .So there’s no Real competition. As an example back a few years ago there were major Hale storms all through the southern states , causing the need for building materials such as roofing and insulation . the 4 major suppliers increased their prices in collaboration a total of 300% over a 2 month period . But that didn’t happen just in the Southern states affected but Nation wide as to not be detected for a period of 8 months . Making those 4 companies A monopoly Net profit of billions in 6 months . And This is what will happen when Insurance companies are allowed to “Compete ” without regulations for fraud .

  8. I’ll be recommending this to my representatives and senators. It is easy to read and understand. Thank you Rand Paul.

    • My thoughts exactly, Don Brostek. I don’t see anything here that addresses illegals getting coverage.
      I’d add a paragraph that stipulates when an illegal shows up for medical care, they get the immediate life-saving attention, then immediately get deported back to where ever they came from. No exceptions.

    • Illegals done need ‘coverage’. They get medical care for free… no matter how we try to stop it, they will get it for free. This is why they keep coming to the USA, they get so MANY things for free.

  9. Can this be passed through through a reconciliation process? If not, it won’t pass in the Senate unless eight Democrats support it and that ain’t gonna happen.

    • You may be right, but why isn’t leadership (and why couldn’t the President) cheerleading for this kind of simplicity? Make the case. Build public support. Make it really hard for dems up for election next time to vote against it.

    • Someone in the Senate needs to present a bill that repeals that dastardly ‘Bird Bill’. Where is McConnell when he’s needed?

  10. Why not maKE the STATES accountable for health care? MY Federal Govt. has no business
    in the health care business!!!! give it back to the states & get rid of all the Federal
    bureaus, DEPARTMENTS,and offices of HEALTH, EDUCATION AND WELFARE!!!
    TRUMP said he’d get rid of O-care. to me that means TOTAL / Change!!!! Give it to
    the States, Feds do not spend MY money wisely.

    • Exactly. The first words in Sen. Paul’s bill basically get the federal government out of the insurance regulation business. But they probably should do even more.

  11. I am thinking that in order to fully repeal Obamacare it has to have 60 votes in the senate. Repubs don’t have those votes,,,so i believe they are starving Obama care in a 3 step process,,,which leads to the destruction and unfolding of Obamacare. Reality check,,, if you completely dump the 14.8 million people who are Obamacare under Medicaid,,the repubs may loose the senate or house in 2018,,, just don’t get greedy and want it all like the gems did in 2008 to 2009,, they lost the house,, “the hog gets slaughtered, but the pig sticks around for another day”

  12. I haven’t studied it, but my understanding of Rand’s objection to the current GOP plan (“Obamacare​ lite”) are the tax credits that are claimed to be camoflaged subsidies. How are Rand’s tax credits any different? I’m not advocating either plan, just trying to understand.

  13. The sad truth is there is no good solution to healthcare. No matter what some group of people are going to feel cheated or left out or it’s going to be way too expensive. Until doctor salaries come down and the price of prescription drugs comes way down we are going to be stuck in this mess. Obamacare sucks but if the Repubs change it then they will own it. Obamacare is one of the main reasons HRC lost the election.

  14. I would like to see,TOTAL removal of Medicare,Medicaid compensation for Vaccines issued.Under Obamacare Doctors, and healthcare facilities are compensated with Tax payer money,for the amount of vaccines they issue.This is why Flu Shots are pushed so hard.

    • Yes! The drug companies are not liable so they don’t make sure their vaccines are safe. Why do we have so many ADHD, immune diseases, autism etc.?

      • Vaccines have NOTHING to do with getting ADHD, AUTISM, IMMUNE DISEASES. That’s a myth that people choose to believe. Children need the vaccinations during childhood, otherwise that puts other children at risk!!! Children have been getting childhood inoculation’s for years, and Never had these health issues. Do you know Autism is hereditary?? It is carried by the fathers gene, Is the Fathers gene carried in vaccination?? Auto Immune diseases are caused inside the body. And for sure, ADHD doesn’t come in a vaccine, it is a problem in the brain that manifests itself as the child grows.

  15. Hmmm… this sounds good but also sounds like many of the same thing in the Trump administration plan … once we get to part 3. I keep hearing that because Obamacare was passed via reconciliation, that Senate and House Rules prevent it from being dismantled wholesale at once. That is why the three part plan. Anyone else hearing this?

  16. Why not just make Medicare available to everyone at an actuarially calculated cost based on age and grandfather current recipients. And then let the private insurance companies compete?

    • Because. actuarially based on age makes anyone over 50 pay for everyone else. Hmmm..sounds familiar, doesnt it? But over 50’s dont make the necessary
      income and it sure isnt gonna go up, unless they are a member of Congress. (LOL)

  17. The plan the President is pushing needs major improvement. The way it stands now, it shouldn’t be approved. Senator Rand’s plan is certainly better over what the administration is pushing for. However, more things need to he done. Under the Republican plan, younger people will have better coverage and seniors will have to pay more and get less coverage. Congress should be covered the same way John Q. Public is covered with no special exceptions. The administration should not push this the way they are doing so until all the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed. Remember how Obamacare was introduced? It was pushed down our throats because Obama wanted the bill to pass due to Ted Kennedy’s failing health. Most members of Congress never read the entire bill and went along with it at Obama’s urging. Haven’t we learned our lession yet? Every inch of this prospective plan needs to be reviewed and fixed before it is voted on.

  18. So where do the poor and the self-employed with variable income, who can barely make housing and food and transportation costs get the money for the HSAs? What about retirees, and those who have been paying into and counting on Medicare?

    If they had the money, they could afford high priced insurance in the first place:

    I personally think we need to go to break-even, nonprofit healthcare in this country, modeled after farm co-ops, credit unions and such were everyone is in the pool, everyone over the age of 18 or 23 if in college pays something, everyone is covered, medical providers are employees, medical goods are ordered on large contracts, with a primary care doctor, a primary care clinic, and hospital system, and a consortium to run regional medical centers for cutting edge medicine or rare diseases and conditions. Costs are such to keep the operation in the black, (your ‘insurance’ is shares in the system) managers are rewarded for cost-saving while keeping quality high, and any “profits” go into new equipment or back to the members and owners of the system. It can be private, and just overseen by federal auditors, such as credit unions, and other co-ops are now.

    • yep. a For Profit system will never truly work for our country. We spend more and have worse outcomes than most Western countries. Rand’s proposal doesnt truly lower the overall costs and the big Pharm, special interests, medical equipment folks are still gonna rake in the cash at the expense of the little people.

  19. This is a good start. However, the promise of saving the “pre-existing condition” clause got lost, “insuring more people at a lower cost” is gone and “protecting the poor and elderly” disappeared. Let’s get to work Mr. Paul and fix it!

  20. Health Security Act
    Return to insurance industry to “risk management”, “cost of care and treatment negotiation”, and “payment administration”; not forced taxed health care. Years of waivers protected group plans let’s return freedom to patients and providers.

    Give patients first cost coverage that grows, reduces or covers premiums for the young and healthy, if insurance coverage is maintained.

    Give insurers risk protection for patients with expensive chronic or acute care and treatment cost by managing individual annually cap with national subsidy pool.

    Off set Medicare tax rate increases with income tax rate deductions or credits.

    Promote not provide “national welfare” with safety network of Medicare/Medicaid for only the most needy by protecting the patient and promoting the providers.

    Protect the insured affordable premiums by appropriately reimbursing providers with Medicare/Medicaid funds.

    Protect the insured by promoting a fair market place with open competition; formation of group plans based on national health care cost not based on age, sex, location; and pre-existing health conditions; thus, premium cost will reflect insurer management within a competitive market place.

  21. Does it remove the IRS from enforcing health care and taxation without representation? The plan sounds good, but this is a highlight of the plan. What is the cost per person/family? If the states are to be empowered, what will the FED Gov’t do besides putting money into 50 accounts to adjust the cost per person/family? This is a better plan than the Rhino-Care proposed by Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, which was a dumbed down version of ACA. Remember these representatives work for us, “We The People”. Lets make them earn their money, let’s demand that our voice be heard. Let’s hold them accountable and when they fail, let’s vote them out.

  22. Allow prescription drugs to be purchased by the American public. Hospitals should provide itemized costs to the public, just like funeral homes do. If private enterprise can build hospitals in competition with those now in existence, that would be very helpful.

  23. OMFG Really? This has got to be fake. There’s no such thing ( legally) called Obamacare. What exactly is he repealing?

  24. I was concerned the plan I heard explained by Paul Ryan was still run by the GOVERNMENT. When I heard the term “obamacare lite” from Paul Rand, I was glad others had the same concern. WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH PLAN, and I stand with those opposing it. We DO DEFINITELY need the option to purchase insurance across state lines. We do need the few good parts of The ‘Unaffordable Care Act’ that I believe we all can agree on, but federal government needs to stay out of running it. Also Congress needs to definitely be included in the same plan as WE THE PEOPLE.

  25. Once again, WE the People, BY the People, For the People…no one in government has to pay for health insurance, they get free transportation and literally, free lunches. No wonder these people try to stay in office FOREVER!! If the Government truly wanted to make a health insurance Bill that befits America, they need to be contributors AND pay their “fair share”. So long cosmetic surgery for free, Nancy Pelosi!

  26. Forcing insurance companies to cover people with preexisting conditions means this is certainly not insurance. It is wealth redistribution, like Obamacare.

    • Well, it’s good to know you have never had a chronic illness or condition for a long period of time, so you wouldn’t need coverage for a pre-existing condition. A lot of people do unfortunately, and do not deserve to have this coverage taken away from them!!

  27. Obamacare needs repealed, no replacement necessary. It is not the government’s place to DICTATE that US citizens purchase a product from a 3rd party. If anything the government’s involvement in the medical industry should be investigating the price gouging of consumers, especially in regards to prescription costs.

  28. Roll these new plan out not to replace Obamacare, but as additional options to allow affordable coverage for the rest of us. Obamacare doesn’t need to be the only game in town. If these idiots like Obamacare, let them keep it. It will self destruct on its own unless they are going to fund it themselves. Remember what Obama said, ” If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan”. And you can PAY for it too.

  29. I heard Rand Paul describing his plan, last week sometime. I was gravely concerned that he wanted to move the cost of healthcare away from government. Therefore, he would make Medicaid more available. If he is unable to understand that Medicaid is funded by government aka tax dollars, should we trust him to delve into the healthcare issue even further?

  30. Unfortunately Senator Rand’s bill S 222 is unconstitutional. People need to read Article 1 Section 7 Paragraph 1 of the US Constitution. For those who may not be aware the PPACA involves the following violations of the US Constitution:

    Article 1 Section 7 Paragraph/Clause 1;
    Article 1 Section 8 Paragraph/Clause 1, 3, 12, 14, 15,16;
    Article 1 Section 9 Paragraph/Clause 4, 5, 6;
    Article 2 Section 1 Paragraph 5;
    Article 4 Section 2 Paragraph 1;
    Article 6;
    Amendments 1, 4, 5, 10, 13, 14, 16

    The pdf file http://dlaster.com/DOCUMENTS/Purpura-v-Sebelius-Issue_to_Counts.pdf contains a list of what it in the bill (fraudulently called “H.R. 3590”) that created the PPACA and is often called “Obamacare”. I have actually read the entire 2409 page bill that the Senate wrote. The Senate wrote the bill that created the PPACA and using fraud took a good bill by Charles Rangel (a 6 page bill giving a veterans a tax break related to homes) by pretending they were amending it.

    A bill to repeal the PPACA should read:

    The law named the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (PPACA), often called “Obamacare” is hereby repealed in its entirety due to its violations of the US Constitution. All taxes, fines, or other provisions created by the PPACA that have not be collected, assessed, or other wise completed at the time this bill is signed into law are hereby null and void.

  31. Lookin’ like it might work.
    With all the immigrants entering legally & illegally–put something in there regarding education payment for doctors who must give military service for X# of years and or serve in low income areas of our country.
