Key Differences and Similarities between the ACA and AHCA
The GOP’s Health Care Plan to Replace Obamacare
On March 6, the Republican Party released its legislative plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as Obamacare. The GOP explained the purpose of the bill stating, “We’re delivering on our promises to repeal and replace Obamacare with President Trump’s proposed health care reforms.”
What healthcare is going to look like under Trump’s administration has been a source of uncertainty in the industry. While this bill leaves many questions unanswered, such as if the plan will allow people currently covered to keep their coverage and how much it will cost, it does answer many questions about the similarities and differences between Obamacare and what many republicans are calling the American Health Care Act, or AHCA.
Update: May 4, 2017- After the bill was pulled from the floor in March, Republicans have a new found trust of the American Health Care Act passing the House. After amending pre-existing conditions, the GOP believes they have the votes to pass the AHCA.
