Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said on Sunday that more people would be covered under Senate Republicans’ ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill than are currently covered.
The Republican healthcare legislation covers a "hole" for people who fall into a mid-income bracket that the previous legislation did not, Price claimed. He noted the bill gives low-income individuals tax credits.
“One of the interesting things that is in this bill that wasn’t in previous iterations is the opportunity to make sure that those folks that actually fell into a gap below 100 percent of the poverty level, but above where a state might allow individuals on the Medicaid system," Price told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Features.”
“This bill provides for coverage for those individuals through the tax credit process, and that’s something that’s new. That’s also one of the reasons we believe we’re going to cover more individuals than are currently covered,” he continued.
