Obamacare Replacement Act proposal (Rand Paul)

Here are details of the Obamacare Replacement Act sent from Cameron Warner of Congressman Jim Jordan's office.

OBAMACARE REPLACEMENT ACT

 SEN. RAND PAUL     |    REP. MARK SANFORD

The Conservative Solution

While there have been a number of promising replacement bills and plans set forth in both

chambers, the Obamacare Replacement Act best ensures that free markets are given an

opportunity to work because patient-centered, consumer-driven competition is the only way we

can lower costs and increase access to America’s healthcare system.

Main Components

Legalize Affordable Insurance Plans: The bill eliminates Obamacare’s essential health

benefits requirement and other restrictive coverage and plan requirements that force people to

purchase plans covering services they don’t want or need.  

Expand Access to and Scope of Health Savings Accounts: The bill provides the most robust

pro-HSA reforms of any proposal. By expanding the number of HSA holders and increasing

the number of covered health care products, cost-conscious consumer behavior typically

exhibited by HSA holders will drive down costs across the market. 

Equal Tax Relief for Individual Health Insurance Purchasers: The bill allows Americans

purchasing their own health insurance to deduct the cost from their taxable income just as with

employer-provided health insurance. This empowers people to purchase insurance independent

of employment.

Allow Individuals and Groups to Band Together to Purchase Insurance: The bill expands

Association Health Plans (AHPs) to allow small businesses and individuals to band together,

even across state lines, through membership in an association to provide health coverage for

their families and employees. By utilizing economies of scale and increased leverage, these

groups are empowered to negotiate for lower costs and protection of pre-existing conditions.

Remove Barriers to Purchasing Insurance Across State Lines: The bill facilitates creation

of an open and competitive interstate market for health insurance by allowing insurers licensed

to sell policies in one state to sell in any other state.

Increase State Medicaid Flexibility: The bill provides states waiver authority allowing them

to develop innovative Medicaid plan designs to lower costs and increase coverage. 

No Tax Credits for Abortions: The bill prohibits the use of its HSA tax credits and

deductions for elective abortion services.
