Senate may take up AHCA in June

A group of 13 U.S. Senators has been working behind the scenes to craft the Senate’s version of the American Health Care Act, and several news outlets are reporting a vote on the legislation may come as soon as the last week in June. Very little is known about what is included in the legislation, but at this point it is expected to take much of the same shape as the version of the AHCA the House passed in early May.

The National Association of Counties has a good update here, along with a number of very helpful resources regarding the relationship between Medicaid and counties. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has also come out with estimates on the impact of a Medicaid per capita cap on states, with state-specific data. The Kaiser Family Foundation also has excellent and often-updated information on what’s happening with the health care legislation.
