In 2017, Congress has been debating legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). As of September 20, 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. A vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill will likely occur before the end of September.
