Republicans are on a determined march to repeal and replace much of the Affordable Care Act within weeks. Two House committees have approved legislation, and a full House vote is possible by the end of March. The effort is in political and policy flux, however, and changes to the legislation are in store as Republicans work to gain the necessary votes.
Health care reform will be the sole focus of our monthly Washington Update live web briefing when Mercer experts will review the latest developments, assess what’s ahead, and share findings from a new Mercer survey on employers’ views of potential policy implications.
House Republicans' failure to advance Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal and replace legislation has scrambled the outlook for health care reform and thrown a spotlight on what the Trump administration may or may not do to undermine or support the law. Mercer experts reviewed the latest developments, assessed the possible legislative and regulatory fallout, and reviewed what plan sponsors should do now during a live web briefing on March 29. The briefing also featured new Mercer survey data on employer opinions of health care reform proposals and fresh projections on the impact of the ACA's "Cadillac" tax now set to take effect in 2020.
