The Colorado Health Institute is holding a webinar and publishing reports and graphics to help Coloradans understand the projected impacts of the Better Care Reconciliation Act.
The webinar on June 27 is open to the public. See below for instructions on how to join.
CHI has a team of a dozen policy experts who have been analyzing the bill and dove into a line-by-line analysis of the draft bill as soon as it was released June 22. Later that day, we published a graphic showing a side-by-side comparison of the major provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the House and Senate versions of the replacement bill. Click here to see the graphic.
Today, we are publishing a question-and-answer document by our analytical team. The paper goes into detail about CHI's projections for how the various parts of the 142-page bill would affect Coloradans and their state government. Click here for the Q-and-A report.
Make sure to check our ACA repeal page for previous reports on how the repeal bill would affect coverage levels in Colorado and the state's Medicaid program, as well as presentations and graphics.
Please join us for a webinar Tuesday, June 27 about what the bill means for Colorado.
You can expect to hear about a range of topics covered by the AHCA, including:
- Effects on Medicaid enrollment and funding, projected over 10 years.
- Effects on individual tax credits, modeled for various age groups and regions of the state.
- Potential effects on employer-based insurance.
- Possible waivers of the Affordable Care Act’s essential health benefits.
- Effects on public health funding in Colorado.
- Effects on Medicare and seniors.
- Funding for Planned Parenthood.
