President Trump and Republicans in Congress have committed to repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. A new interactive tool from the Kaiser Family Foundation enables users to create side-by-side comparisons of major ACA alternative plans, now including 2017 proposals from Sen. Rand Paul and from Sen. Bill Cassidy.

With the tool, users can compare the plans’ approaches to more than a dozen key areas of health policy, including individual insurance market rules, requirements and provisions for employers, benefit design, Medicaid, and Medicare.


Detailed summaries of the Affordable Care Act and the following proposals are included:

  • Sen. Rand Paul’s Obamacare Replacement Act, 2017
  • Sen. Bill Cassidy’s Patient Freedom Act, 2017
  • House Speaker Paul Ryan’s A Better Way: Our Vision for a More Confident America, 2016
  • Empowering Patients First Act, 2015, introduced by Rep. Tom Price before he became secretary of Health and Human Services

Summaries of major new plans and updates to existing proposals will be added as they’re introduced.
