The American Health Care Act: New House GOP Bill Summary and Interactive Maps of Its Effects on Tax Credits
The Kaiser Family Foundation today issued a summary of the Republican House leadership’s March 6 proposed Affordable Care Act (ACA) replacement bill, the American Health Care Act, that can be compared in 17 key policy areas to the ACA and several other proposed replacement plans.
In addition, the Foundation updated its interactive maps that compare county-level estimates of premium tax credits consumers would receive under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2020 with what they’d receive under the new House GOP plan. The maps include 2020 premium tax credit estimates by county for current ACA marketplace enrollees at age 27, 40, or 60 with an annual income of $20,000, $30,000, $40,000, $50,000, $75,000, or $100,000.
Additional analyses related to the new legislation and its implications are forthcoming. Previous reports related to key aspects of ACA replacement plans, including Medicaid per-capita caps, variations in state Medicaid spending, and high-risk pools, are also available at kff.org.
