What the American Health Care Act Means for States

Screen Shot 2017-05-09 at 12.45.51 PMOn Thursday, May 4, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA), a major step in efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The bill now moves to the U.S. Senate, and early reports indicate that states can anticipate a long process as the Senate deliberate changes. A new chart from NASHP shows a side-by-side comparison of major components of the ACA and the AHCA. In addition, NASHP also produced an AHCA Implementation Timeline, a Stability Fund Snapshot, and a State Waivers Snapshot.
