What you need to know about the House GOP healthcare bill
The House GOP health bill is set to become law Tuesday, and it could change the face of healthcare in the United States for decades to come.
But as we head into the day, here’s a look at the main points of the Republican bill, the main elements of the plan, and how it would affect you.1.
It’s the most comprehensive version of the Affordable Care Act ever.
The bill would expand coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, provide subsidies to help people buy insurance, and raise taxes on the rich.
That is, in a word, an overhaul of the ACA.
But the House bill does not take any of the existing ACA provisions that people currently enjoy and that were part of the original plan.
In fact, the bill is largely a complete overhaul of its own.
It adds, for example, a $10,000 cap on the amount of Medicaid money a family could receive per person, while also eliminating an individual mandate that had made it so many people who qualify for Medicaid couldn’t qualify for it.
It also gives states more leeway in setting their Medicaid programs and changes the way the federal government picks winners and losers in the health insurance market.2.
It would give states more flexibility.

That’s a way of saying that, once states begin to implement their plans, they will get a greater number of “bets” to use to make the markets more competitive, which is a key aspect of the Obamacare exchanges and what led the health reform law to be called the “marketplaces.”
States that do well on risk-adjusted markets will get more money to spend on insurance plans that will lead to more competition.
That means states that have lower premiums and higher deductibles will get money to help lower the costs of insurance.
And that will be what Ryan hopes will drive insurers to more aggressively offer coverage to people.
“We are going to put in place a very, very strong incentive for states to go out and offer plans that are risk-adjustable,” Ryan said on Friday.
“The more you go out there and do it, the more you’re going to attract competition.”3.
The House bill would also expand Medicaid.
In addition to expanding coverage for pre-existing conditions, the House proposal also would expand Medicaid to cover everyone who is eligible for the program.
In states that opted in to the ACA Medicaid expansion, the expansion would not have been required.
That was because the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that states that expanded Medicaid would have been able to keep the program’s cost-sharing ratio, the percentage of premiums that go to the state’s residents.
The CBO said the CBO found that the expansion’s cost would have come to $1,000 per enrollee.
The CBO also found that if the House plan had not been passed, the federal share of the cost of Medicaid would be $3.1 trillion over the next 10 years.
That number was lower than the CBO expected based on how the ACA’s Medicaid expansion worked out.
It projected that states with expanded Medicaid, in the long term, would save $7,400 per enrollees over the 10 years and would save an additional $1.6 trillion over that same period.4.
It gives states greater leeway to set their Medicaid plans.
Ryan said he wants states to be able to set up their Medicaid program on their own terms.
In other words, they should not be required to get the government’s help if they want to set a plan that is more efficient.
The GOP bill would allow states to set plans that would be more “flexible,” which would allow them to set the program up to match their state’s cost structure, while still keeping costs under control.5.
It increases premiums and deductibles.
Ryan also wants to lower premiums for some people, like the unemployed.
He wants to give states a way to lower their deductibles, which will mean people who have preexisting conditions will be less able to afford coverage.
He also wants states, not the federal Government, to set premiums for Medicaid.6.
It has a long list of changes.
It’s also a plan designed to give Americans a better deal.
Ryan says that the House would give them more flexibility in setting up their own plans and make it easier for people to keep their existing plans.
But he also says that he will work with Democrats to keep some of the provisions in the House-passed version of this bill, like a $1 trillion cap on out-of-pocket spending, that the Democrats opposed in the Senate.7.
It includes a big repeal of the individual mandate.
The individual mandate was supposed to be a requirement for
