GOP Plans Massive Changes to MedicaidMarch 8, 2017 |
by Ana Mulero
The text of the long-awaited Republican bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was released Monday evening and included tax credits to help people buy coverage based somewhat on income, instead of just on age as previous drafts obtained by Politico had suggested.
It also eliminates the cap on employer-sponsored health insurance tax breaks, which had been in previous draft bills. The Cadillac tax on high-end plans would remain but be further delayed until 2025.
