    The Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) builds on the AHCA but includes some very significant differences. NASHP has reviewed the BCRA, recognizing that it is a discussion draft and not a final proposal, and has added it to our chart comparing the ACA, AHCA and now BCRA. This document was updated on July 21st, 2017 to include language creating a continuous coverage requirement.
