In 2017, Congress has been debating legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). As of November 15, Congress has discussed several key proposals: 

  • The House approved H.R.1628, the American Health Care Act, on May 4 
  • The Senate introduced the Better Care Reconciliation Act as an amendment to H.R.1628. The Senate did not reach the 51 votes necessary to proceed to a vote on the BCRA
  • The Graham-Cassidy Heller Johnson bill, which was introduced on September 13 as an amendment to H.R. 1628. GCHJ was not brought to a vote by the full Senate.
  • The Senate version of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes a provision zeroing out the penalty for individuals who lack coverage.
