Just hours before House Republicans released their long-awaited Affordable Care Act (ACA) replacement bill, Patricia Salber, MD, MBA, of The Doctor Weighs In, and Nathan Bays, general counsel and executive director at the Health Management Academy, discussed what was expected to be included in the final bill. Despite only able to discuss based on speculation and the previously leaked bills, Bays accurately predicted some of the main provisions of the new bill, including changes to the Medicaid program to per capita funding, refundable tax credits to replace the exchanges, and the repeal of the individual and employer mandates.

They went on to discuss specifics, such as the difference between the ACA's subsidies and the new bill's tax credits, and what per capita funding for Medicaid might mean for states.
