ACA Road to Repeal: Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017

On June 22, Senate Republicans issued a discussion draft entitled the “Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017”, which is the Senate version of Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal and replace legislation. The House of Representatives narrowly passed their version of ACA repeal and replace legislation, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), on May 4, 2017. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) set a goal for the Senate to vote ahead of Congress’ July 4 recess, though it is still unclear whether the vote will take place in that timeframe. There is also a question whether or not there are the 50 votes needed to pass the 142-page bill. So, while the vote timing and tally remain uncertain, there is much we do know about the bill, its implications and what to look out for next.

For highlights of the Senate Bill and guidance for employers, read ACA Road to Repeal: Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017.
