2017 Federal Healthcare Reform Legislation

Sep 26, 2017

In 2017, Congress has been debating legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). As of November 15, Congress has discussed several key proposals: 

  • The House approved H.R.1628, the American Health Care Act, on May 4 
  • The Senate introduced the Better Care Reconciliation Act as an amendment to H.R.1628. The Senate did not reach the 51 votes necessary to proceed to a vote on the BCRA
  • The Graham-Cassidy Heller Johnson bill, which was introduced on September 13 as an amendment to H.R. 1628. GCHJ was not brought to a vote by the full Senate.
  • The Senate version of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes a provision zeroing out the penalty for individuals who lack coverage.
