House GOP budget plan: Overhaul Medicaid, Medicare; scrap ACA
Modern Healthcare

House Republicans are proposing far-reaching changes to Medicare and Medicaid as a part of a blueprint to balance the budget within 10 years. The proposal also reiterates plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, including financial assistance for low- and middle-income individuals, and the taxes implemented to help pay for coverage expansion programs.

“This will save over $2 trillion, end the Obamacare raid on Medicare and rescind all of the tax increases on job creators and healthcare innovation,” the budget document states.
