After passing in the United States House of Representatives in early May, the American Health Care Act (AHCA) to repeal and replace most of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) made its way to the Senate. Rather than voting on the AHCA, the Senate released a revised version of the bill called the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) on June 22. Senators will likely vote on the BCRA in mid- to late-July, giving the public a short window of time to share their opinions on this proposed legislation with elected officials if they choose to do so.
Learn more about this legislation and analysis of it from the Iowa Hospital Association (IHA).
Below are some facts to assist you if you choose to reach out to legislators to communicate your position on the bill. Also, visit the “AHCA & Iowa Hospitals” section of this webpage for additional information.
The CBO estimates the bill would reduce federal funding to the Medicaid program by $772 billion from 2017 through 2026, a 26% reduction in 2026 compared to current law.
