• What the House and Senate Health Care Bills Mean for States

    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 25th, 2017 to include language creating a continuous coverage requirement. NASHP will continue to track amendments to the BCRA and will provide more detailed analysis and comparison as the final language becomes clear.

With ongoing funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, NASHP has supported, analyzed, and reported on state efforts to extend children’s coverage since the CHIP program’s inception, building on our longstanding work on Medicaid.
