American Health Care Act Passes the House
"All attention will now turn to the Senate to determine the fate of the ACA.... [T]he Upton Amendment provides an additional $8 billion in high-risk pool funding over five years (2018-2023) for waiver states for individuals with preexisting conditions who fail to maintain continuous coverage (and therefore may be subject to health status underwriting). The $8 billion supplements the AHCA's existing $130 billion in high funding over ten years." [Article includes a 13-point summary of the bill's provisions.]
