After their failed attempt at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) earlier this year, Congress and the Administration are making a second go at health care reform. House Republicans approved their health care plan this month which includes several key changes: eliminating the ACA marketplaces, changing the income-based tax credit structure of the ACA to an age-based tax credit structure, cutting the taxes included in the ACA that help pay for subsidies, among others. Yet, the bill faces procedural hurdles in the Senate – where some GOP senators have concerns about states' ability to opt out of standards of care and the loosening regulation around preexisting conditions.
