Give Americans refundable tax credits ranging from $2000 to $4000 a year per individual, based on age, to buy private health coverage. They are capped at $14,000 for a family. In a change from the draft version, tax credits begin to shrink once annual income surpasses $75,000 ($150,000 for joint tax filers).
Repeal the penalty for individuals who do not obtain coverage.
Prohibit, as the ACA does, insurers from denying coverage to individuals with pre-existing conditions, or charging them more.
Preserve the ACA provision that allows young adults to remain on their parents' plan until age 26.
Eliminate ACA taxes on such things as medical devices, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and certain health insurers.
Allow individuals and families to almost double the amount they can contribute to health savings accounts, and give them more flexibility in spending those dollars.
Give states $100 billion worth of grants over 10 years to set up high-risk insurance pools for individuals with costly, pre-existing conditions; reduce out-of-pocket expenses; promote access to preventive services; and otherwise make healthcare more affordable.
