From Inside D.C.: House Republicans release proposal to replace ACA, WSHA provides analysis

February 23, 2017

House Republican leaders released on February 17 a proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The proposal — the most detailed to date of how the ACA would be replaced — outlines broad policy changes but lacks enough detail to for us to fully understand how Washington State’s patients, hospitals and health systems will be affected. However, the significant reductions in federal Medicaid funds would have a major impact on our state and erode the coverage gains achieved under the ACA.

This proposal raises opportunities for thoughtful dialogue, but also raises serious questions. Click here to read more from Inside D.C., including details of the proposal, WSHA’s analysis, and resources for hospitals and health systems. (Chelene Whiteaker)
