A Better Way Policy Brief

House Republicans released a broad policy brief on their developing ACA replacement plan, which included talking points around their plan to modernize Medicaid, utilize State Innovation Grants, enhance Health Savings Accounts, and to provide portable, monthly tax credits.  This document is meant to provide House Republicans with information to take home with them during their one-week President’s Week break to discuss with their constituents.  While still relatively short on details, the policy brief highlights:

  • Modernizing Medicaid, which includes repealing the Medicaid expansion and utilizing per capita caps and allowing states to opt for Medicaid block grants.
  • Creating a new universal tax credit.
  • Encouraging the creation of high-risk pools through State Innovation Grants.
  • Allowing individuals to fund their health care though the expanded use of Health Savings Accounts.
