A question about UHC

I realize this is the political madness forum - but for this question - please leave the madness out of it

In the house and senate version of the health care bill - what are the parameters for the 30 million people who are currently uninsured?

I've google this, but i can't find anything (google can be so vague at times)

Or in another way of speaking - what stipulations must one be associated with in order to be considered one of the 30 million Americans that will be eligible to receive benefits under the new UHC

(If possible, could you provide references to back up your answer)

it has been 3 months since i posted this question - and nay an answer.

I assume that all of those who claimed that they've gone through these bills page by page weren't being entirely truthful?

I've googled the piss out of this question & can't find the answer.

Perhaps there isn't one?

You are asking two different short it is complicated.

The house bill has a full mandate...meaning every one who doesn't have insurance will be required to get it...plain and simple.

What qualifies someone for government subsidies if they can't afford it? That is determined by your income vs current defined "poverty level"..

Outlined in a chart here

The senate bill also uincludes a mandate technically, but "exempts" a large number of folks thus dropping the number significantly.

So, if i am to understand correctly, basically the way it looks is that even if you make, lets say, 70,000 a year, then the government will say "You make too much" and you'll be ineligible for "Universal" health care?

So this is basically just another form of welfare?
