If we’re judging a book by its cover, R-Ky. wants to bring up for a vote next week Like the House bill passed in May the Senate version would put big dents in the Affordable Care Act repealing just about all of its taxes pulling back on Medicaid expansion and ditching the individual mandate to buy coverage and the employer mandate to offer itBut the Senate bill contains three elements McConnell is betting will win over a half dozen or so moderates who remain skeptical but whose votes are crucial to overall passage (remember: the majority leader needs only 50 votes since arcane budget rules are being applied to the measure meaning he can lose just two Republicans) McConnell’s draft hashed out behind closed doors basically retains Obamacare’s insurance subsidy structure — with just a few tweaks — takes a gentler approach than the House bill in the short-term to Medicaid expansion and wouldn’t allow states to opt out of key protections for patients with preexisting conditionsThe idea aides and lobbyists say is to provide a softer landing for people at lower ends of the income spectrum than under the House bill That measure based the subsidies only on age and didn’t peg them to actual premiums resulting in estimates of dramatic cost spikes for some Americans and prompting a heavy onslaught of public criticism that spooked many House moderatesThe Senate bill tries to fix that problem — sort of Its subsidies closely mirror Obamacare subsidies which are currently available to Americans earning between 100 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level Starting in 2020 under the Senate bill this assistance would be capped for those earning up to 350 percent – but anyone below that line could get the subsidies if they’re not eligible for Medicaid As under the ACA the subsidies would be pegged to a benchmark insurance plan each year ensuring that the assistance grows enough over time to keep coverage affordable for customersMcConnell is also offering moderates an approach to Medicaid he hopes will be more politically palatable to them It’s true the draft proposes even deeper cuts to Medicaid than the House version by tying federal spending to a slower growth index But that wouldn’t kick in for another seven years well past moderate senators’ next reelection battles And it doesn’t fully end the ACA’s Medicaid expansion until five years from now gradually easing down the extra federal payments over three years starting in 2021 The Senate bill also retains the ACA’s protections for patients with preexisting conditions It eliminates the House bill’s pathway for states to lift a ban on insurers from charging people with serious medical conditions higher premiums which would have been another political hotbed for moderates It does expand the use of certain "1332 waivers" to give states more flexibility — a provision that conservatives like Sen Ted Cruz R-Texas wanted — but those waivers don’t open the door to ducking the preexisting protectionsThe Senate bill would also provide funding in 2018 and 2019 for extra Obamacare subsidies to insurers to cover the cost-sharing discounts they’re required to give the lowest-income patients Insurers have been deeply concerned over whether the subsidies will continue as the Trump administration has refused to say whether it will keep funding them in the long runWith this approach that sticks a little closer to existing law McConnell is hoping to win over Republicans in states that embraced parts of the ACA like Lisa Murkowski of Alaska Rob Portman of Ohio Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Dean Heller of Nevada Their votes are absolutely crucial to the whole effort to repeal and replace parts of Obamacare the promise Republicans made time and time again over the past seven years and which McConnell is determined to fulfillEven Wednesday many members expressed deep skepticism toward elements in the draft as it took shape "Up to this point I don’t have any new news – tomorrow we will see it definitively – that would cause me to change that sentiment" Capito told The Washington Post’s Sean Sullivan Kelsey Snell and Juliet Eilperin WednesdayMany moderates are still likely to be displeased that the Senate draft will almost certainly result in significantly more uninsured people than under the ACA although it could look a little better than the House version on that measure which is estimated to cost 23 million people their coverage in a decade All of this won’t be known for sure until the Congressional Budget Office score is released likely on Monday Furthermore the measure retains a provision to strip Medicaid funds from Planned Parenthood clinics for one year potentially alienating Murkowski who supports abortion rightsSo what do conservatives get out of this bill Big cuts to Medicaid further down the road and a repeal of nearly all of Obamacare’s taxes Under the Senate draft federal Medicaid spending would remain constant for three years In 2021 it would be transformed from an open-ended entitlement to a system based on per-capita enrollment Starting in 2025 the measure would tie federal spending on the program to an even slower growth index which in turn could prompt states to reduce the size of their Medicaid programsConservatives and the health-care industry at large will also be pleased that the draft proposes repealing all of Obamacare’s taxes except for its so-called "Cadillac tax" on high-cost health plans in language similar to the House version Senators previously toyed with the idea of keeping some of the ACA’s taxesBut there’s a strong chance the Senate bill could spark a revolt on the right Conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation and Americans for Prosperity wanted to erase Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion right away and they’re also likely to view the Senate GOP’s approach to subsidies as another big bad government entitlement Antiabortion groups may oppose the measure too since it removes the House bill language restricting federally subsidized health plans from covering abortions which may have run afoul of complex budget rulesThis article was written by Paige Winfield Cunningham of
