AFFORDABLE CARE ACT “REPEAL AND REPLACE”
Expect Congress to make at least one last push to repeal the Affordable Care Act. While Republicans made strides in 2017, they have not fully delivered on their campaign trail promise to “repeal and replace” the ACA.
Congress ended the year by repealing the individual mandate, a central element of the ACA. Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), starting in 2019, the penalty for an individual’s failure to maintain minimum essential coverage will be reduced to zero. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has vowed to continue pursuing full-scale repeal in 2018, as many of the conference’s key priorities remain.
In addition to ACA repeal, we anticipate that Congress will consider legislation that would stabilize the ACA individual marketplace early in 2018. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, had conditioned her vote on the TCJA on passage of two market stabilization bills – the Bipartisan Health Care Stabilization Act and the Federal Reinsurance Act – before the end of 2017. Given the tight timeline and a potential government shutdown right before Christmas, she agreed to push the measures to January.
It is likely, however, that health care reform will face similar challenges as experienced this year, including partisan tensions and intraparty disagreements. Further complicating efforts is Republicans’ narrowed majority, with Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., replacing Sen. Luther Strange, R-Ala., in the chamber. Even if leadership chooses, once again, to pursue reforms through budget reconciliation – which requires 50 votes in the Senate (as opposed to 60) – Senate Republicans will be able to afford only one defection.
