House GOP Health Care Plan Just as Detailed as House GOP Budget
Today’s edition of the “GOP proposes plan that consists of vague attacks on Democrats” story is the “broad outline of a health care plan” just released by the Health Care Solutions Group. Highlights:
- A “new small business tax credit” to increase the number of employers providing health care to employees
- Allowing dependents to stay on their parents’ plans until the age of 25; the GOP estimates that this would knock “up to 7 million people” out of the ranks of the uninsured
- Giving employers “greater flexibility” to reward employees for healthy habits
There is no estimate of the plan’s cost, or an estimate of how many people would be covered beyond the 25-and-under people who would be added back to their parents’ plans.
