AHCA was initially introduced on March 6, 2017. Subsequently, an amended proposal was passed by the House of representatives on May 4, 2017. It includes the following summary of proposed changes to the Affordable Care Act that could directly affect employers. As proposed legislation, which must be approved by Congress and signed by the President, all details provided below are subject to change.
Although AHCA was passed by the House somewhat hastily, the Senate is expected to take a much closer look. It is likely that during committee review some provisions could be removed, revised, or completely rewritten. At this point we cannot predict what a final “bill” will include, or when it will be completed. We will continue to report additional developments throughout the legislative process.
