House Repub­li­cans

The Washington Post Sunday - - TAK­ING STOCK -

re­leased lon­gan­tic­i­pated leg­is­la­tion to sup­plant the Af­ford­able Care Act with a more con­ser­va­tive vi­sion for the na­tion’s health-care sys­tem, re­plac­ing fed­eral in­surance sub­si­dies with a new form of in­di­vid­ual tax cred­its and grants to help states shape their own poli­cies. The leg­is­la­tion would pre­serve two of the most pop­u­lar fea­tures of the 2010 health­care law: let­ting young adults stay on their par­ents’ plans un­til age 26 and for­bid­ding in­sur­ers to deny cov­er­age or charge more to peo­ple with pre­ex­ist­ing med­i­cal prob­lems. It would also tar­get Planned Par­ent­hood, ren­der­ing the women’s health or­ga­ni­za­tion in­el­i­gi­ble for Med­i­caid re­im­burse­ments or fed­eral fam­ily plan­ning grants.
