U.S. Senators released their American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Thursday which would repeal Obamacare and it could have big consequences for South Carolina.
The bill would look to phase out Medicaid by 2021 and remove the individual mandate that requires healthcare coverage. Palmetto Project executive Director Steve Skardon says rolling back Medicaid in South Carolina like the AHCA dictates could be devastating for many people across the state. The Palmetto Project works to connect low income workers with health care coverage through the government exchanges.
