Many health care components still uncertain as tax bill negotiations continue

December 7, 2017

Lawmakers are trying to reconcile the differences between the Senate tax bill passed Saturday and the House bill passed Nov. 16, leaving many unanswered questions about the future of health care.

The Senate version keeps the medical expense deduction in place, but strips the individual mandate to have health insurance or pay a penalty as required by the Affordable Care Act. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has predicted this change could lead to a 10% annual increase in premiums, with an estimated 4 million people dropping insurance by 2019 and 13 million by 2027.
