"We are encouraged that the draft Senate legislation funds cost-sharing reductions, which help those who need it most", BCBSA said in a statement.

After almost eight years in a dark closet, the Republican Senate's version of a health care bill has finally seen the light of day.

"In this form, I will not support it", he told a news conference in Las Vegas on Friday.

As Republicans scrambled Sunday to wrangle enough votes to pass health care reform legislation, United States president Donald Trump - in an unusual bid to reach out to his political opponents - urged Democrats to support bill.

Four conservative Republicans - a number large enough to stop the bill from passage - announced in the afternoon that they were withholding support.

That could add Heller's name to Trump's call list. The Trump White House keeps talking about making government more "transparent". Still President Trump says it's a work in progress.

Healthcare stocks closed down 0.1 % on Friday, clawing back some losses after the sector dropped sharply late in the session on Heller's announcement.

A day after saying he had "serious concerns" over the Senate's health care reform bill, Sen. He said amendments during the upcoming debate "cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation".

Four conservative senators expressed opposition but openness to talks: Ted Cruz of Texas, Kentucky's Rand Paul, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson from Wisconsin.

Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack says the Better Care and Reconciliation Act of 2017 falls short of what the Republicans pledged to do, and would be harmful to Iowans in many ways. "I think that they'll probably get there, but we'll have to wait and see".

"We've a very good plan", Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

Second, the Senate bill starts from the appalling House draft. The Michigan Democrat believes the Senate bill would cut coverage while increasing costs.

The Senate bill would reduce federal funding for the Medicaid expansion starting in 2021. He indicated the Senate plan met that request.

"We're anxious about the burden it creates for the states", Kristine Grow, spokeswoman at America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), said on Friday. The House bill and the Senate offering isn't just a step backward, it blows up the road.
