On May 4, 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives passed its proposed bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), called the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Then, on June 22, 2017, Republicans in the U.S. Senate released a discussion draft of their proposal, called the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). On July 3, 2017, the Congressional Research Service (CRS) issued a comparison report of the House’s AHCA and the Senate’s BCRA.
This ACA Overview includes the CRS report, which contains tables that, together, provide an overview of AHCA and BCRA provisions, as compared to current law under the ACA.
- Table 1 includes provisions that apply to the private health insurance market.
- Table 2 includes provisions related to public health, taxes and implementation funding.
