4 takeways from GOP meeting on repealing ACA


Here are Becker’s Hospital Review’s four takeaways from what is known about the closed Republican congressional meeting last week on how to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

1. “Congressional Republicans appear to have doubts about how to fulfill their promise to dismantle the ACA without explicit guidance from President Donald Trump or his administration, according to the report.

2. “Specifically, the report states, lawmakers wrestled with a myriad of issues, including who may end up either losing coverage or paying more under a revamped system.

3. “Additionally, lawmakers expressed concerns about how to prepare a replacement plan that can be ready to launch at the time of repeal; how to avoid deep damage to the health insurance market; how to keep premiums affordable for middle-class families; how to avoid the political consequences of defunding Planned Parenthood, reports The Washington Post.

4. “‘We’d better be sure that we’re prepared to live with the market we’ve created’ with repeal, Rep. Tom McClintock, of California, said during Thursday’s meeting, according to The Washington Post. “That’s going to be called Trumpcare.
