Bush offers plan to repeal, replace federal healthcare law
Modern Healthcare

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is proposing to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s healthcare law with one that would increase tax credits for individuals, allowing them to buy coverage protection against “high-cost medical events.”

But the two-page proposal, which would give more power to states to regulate health insurance, contained no specific details on how many people could be left without coverage. It does, however, guarantee coverage for people with pre-existing health conditions, which is part of Obama’s 974-page federal health law.
