House GOP proposes to eliminate most ACA taxes; Some coverage/credit benefits remain.

House Republicans have unveiled a repeal and replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The GOP’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) would eliminate most of the ACA’s taxes, including:

  • Penalties connected with the individual and employer mandates
  • The net investment income (NII) tax
  • The additional Medicare tax

The excise tax on high-dollar health plans would be left in place, but delayed. A number of non-tax provisions related to scope of coverage, benefits and children would also remain.

The House GOP plan has been rejected by Democrats. Some Republicans have said the plan does not go far enough in repealing all of the ACA. As March moves forward, a vote on the House floor is eventually expected.
