Employers Back Latest Health Care Bills

July 23, 2018

Eleven health care bills that seek to tweak the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have passed the Ways and Means Committee in the U.S, House of Representatives. The most popular bills seek to further delay the "Cadillac tax" and ease Health Savings Account (HSA) restrictions. At least half of the measures have bipartisan sponsorship. To become law, the measures must bevoted on and passed by the full U.S. House of Representatives and Senate before Congress adjourns in December, then sent to President Trump for his expected signature. If not enacted, these proposals are likely to be reintroduce in the next Congress. The House is expected to vote on some of the bills before the end of July.
