GOP “American Health Care Act” clears First Hurdle

The House Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce Committees advanced their respective repeal and replacement bills without accepting any amendments. The bills will be heard in the House Budget Committee next week before heading to the House floor. The Congressional Budget Office has not yet scored the bills. Several organizations have voiced their opposition, including the AARP, the American Hospital Association and the American Medical Association.

Both NACCHO and NACO have issued press releases on the GOP’s bills.

The Kaiser Family Foundation has also updated their interactive plan comparison tool.
