Today, Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove outlined a sense of trepidation about the new Republican-scripted health care bill. He appeared on a thing called "Squawk Box" on CNBC and levied concerns about how patients may be paying more and getting less under this proposal.

Watch the video below.

As a quick primer, the New York Times has sketched out the aspects of the Affordable Care Act that will be repealed, changed or left alone. It's a handy guide, and it shows that the core of the Republican bill is an emphasis on health savings accounts — high-deductible (and tax-deductible) plans that implicitly benefit wealthier consumers.

"The bill that it is right now, I'm concerned that it's going to wind up costing the actual patients — they're not going to get the sort of coverage they need," Cosgrove said.
