    Eight States Will Stop Medicaid Expansion If Congress Reduces FMAP
    Eight states that expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act included statutory triggers to end their expansion programs should Congress reduce the enhanced federal match below levels guaranteed by the ACA, according to a paper by Manatt Health Solutions obtained by Inside Health Policy.

    GOP Policy Brief Pushes Medicaid Per-Capita Caps, Block Grants; Repeal Of Medicaid DSH Cuts
    House Republicans outline a plan to pull back Medicaid expansion and convert Medicaid into a per-person pay system in a health care policy brief obtained by Inside Health Policy. The brief, which closely resembles the 'A Better Way' plan by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), does not go into detail about how lawmakers will determine the baseline for setting per-capita allotments, nor does it specify how long states that expanded Medicaid would continue to receive the enhanced federal match promised by the Affordable Care Act for that population. The brief is a coordinated effort between the House Ways & Means and Energy & Commerce committees.

    House GOP Lays Out Details Of ACA 'Repeal-Plus' In Reconciliation
    House Republican leaders are floating a paper that offers details on how they plan to go about repealing and replacing the ACA: The 2015 reconciliation bill will continue to be used as a foundation to repeal the ACA's mandate penalties, taxes and subsidies, but will add in replacement features such as expanded health savings accounts, high-risk pools, refundable, advanceable tax credits, and a state option of moving to per-capita or block grants for Medicaid after a transition period. The reconciliation bill would also appropriate cost-sharing reduction payments and codify regulations from HHS that help stabilize the market, according to the GOP policy brief and interviews with lawmakers who attended the briefing.
