Graham Cassidy Healthcare Bill Last Effort Under Reconciliation

After several false starts on re-reforming healthcare (health insurance), the remaining bill (Graham Cassidy) has until the end of the month of September.

A ruling by the Senate parliamentarian earlier this month said Republicans can't continue after September 30th to use the process of reconciliation, which allows bills to be passed with a simple majority in the Senate if they decrease the deficit

The plan details include:

  • Shifting Medicaid Funding and Subsidies to State Block Grants
  • Eliminate the individual and employer mandates
  • State reinsurance funds to offset high claims
  • Adjustments/reductions to essential health benefits
