On May 4, 2017, the House passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Previously, the AHCA failed to garner enough support and the House ultimately passed an amended version of the bill.  The current bill allows states to waive essential health benefits, permits older enrollees to be charged more, slashes Medicaid funding and gives states the option to seek waivers that would allow insurers to charge more for individuals with pre-existing conditions. The AHCA also has provisions for lifetime and annual caps for large employer health plans.  Overall, the AHCA would eliminate many of the taxes that the Affordable Care Act implemented as a funding vehicle for health care reform.  For now, multiemployer Trust Funds should proceed with the status quo and continue to comply with all the health care reforms that were initially implemented by the Affordable Care Act.   For more information on the AHCA see: http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-na-pol-obamacare-repeal/ http://healthaffairs.org/blog/2017/05/04/house-passes-ahca-how-it-happened-what-it-would-do-and-its-uncertain-senate-future/ http://pilotonline.com/news/government/nation/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-republican-health-care/article_17a0a52d-d7f3-5632-ab8a-6024e2a9a5b5.html
