Now Available: Summary of Senate Repeal/Replace Bill in 17 Key Areas

An interactive tool from the Kaiser Family Foundation now includes a detailed summary of the Senate’s new discussion draft, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, a plan released Thursday to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

With the tool, users can compare the Senate bill to current law and the House-passed American Health Care Act in 17 key areas of health policy, including Medicaid, premium subsidies to individuals, state role, financing, women’s health, and individual health insurance market rules.

Additional analyses related to the new legislation and its implications are forthcoming. Previous reports related to key aspects of ACA replacement, including state data on coverage and financing at stake; factors affecting state’ ability to respond to federal Medicaid cuts; and the potential impact of reducing government funding for family planning care, are also available at kff.org.
