Bipartisan Proposal to Improve ACA Announced by House

Earlier this week, a coalition of House of Representative lawmakers released a series of proposals that would repair some of the problems that exist within the Affordable Care Act.   Coined the “Problem Solvers Caucus”, the contingent  is  made up of  approximately 40 Representative equally split between both parties and co-chaired by Reps. Tom Reed (R-NY) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ).

The five pronged plan to fix ACA marketplaces without dismantling its basic architecture include:  1. creating a “stability fund” for states to off-set premium costs for policy holders with pre-existing conditions;  2.  repealing the 2.3 percent tax on medical devices;  3.  overhauling the employer mandate;  4. creating incentives for states to experiment with new approaches to coverage options and costs; and 5. guaranteeing federal cost-sharing subsidies.
