Screwed by the Greedy Business of the American Healthcare is the name of the documentary film produced by award winning film-maker Dr. Vivek Palavali from Flint, Michigan, and it tells the story of the country’s healthcare system.  

“The biggest problem is the increase in co-pays and deductibles so a lot of patients are trying to hold off in accessing the medical care they need for the fear of expenses until its really bad.”

Uncertainty in Washington about the future of the Affordable Care Act is leaving many Michigan consumers in the dark on how much they will paying for health coverage next year.

President Trump is threatening to withhold payments to insurance companies that help make coverage affordable for people who buy their own health insurance. More than 300 thousand people in Michigan buy their coverage on exchanges set up under Obamacare.

In January, President Donald Trump asked Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act “very quickly.”

The replacement plan has yet to be revealed. A recent statewide poll asks Michigan voters what they think about repealing the ACA without a replacement?

Whether you’re a Michigan Republican, Democrat or Independent the overwhelming number of voters, 57 percent, want Congress and President Donald Trump to have a health care replacement plan enacted before repealing the one that’s already in place.
