American Health Care Act knowledge roundup (1)

By, Rebecca Levin

On Monday, house Republicans revealed their alternative to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The American Health Care Act (AHCA) involves multiple reversals to ACA policies and will affect many Americans. Here are some useful resources we’ve identified to help digest what exactly these changes are and how they will affect people living with HIV:

  • This New York Times article lays out, point by point, the changes from the ACA to the AHCA.
  • POZ Magazine’s analysis looks at the present and future effects of the AHCA on people with HIV.
  • Vox’s article is easy to understand and covers how the plan will affect patients with chronic illnesses, like HIV.
  • The Kaiser Family Foundation’s Interactive Map compares the tax credits under the Affordable Care Act to the tax credits under the American Health Care Act.
  • The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ article takes an in-depth look at how the Medicaid per capita cap would affect coverage.
  • The Western Center on Law and Poverty’s two pager discusses how the AHCA will cause changes to Medi-Cal coverage and shift major financial burden to California.
