On July 13, 2017 Senate Republican leaders released a revised discussion draft of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). The changes made in this version of the Senate proposal do not substantively change the basic features of the original BCRA proposal. The discussion draft leaves in place the dramatic restructuring of the federal Medicaid program. In addition, the new discussion draft also includes language that could destabilize the individual insurance market.
