10 Changes to Medicaid Under Senate’s ACA Repeal Bill: CA Implications (Updated)

Executive Summary

On July 13, Senate Republicans updated the bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and eliminate the current financing structure of Medicaid under the guise of the Better Care Reconciliation Act or BCRA 2.0. This fact sheet was updated on July 21 to reflect the latest version — and likely not the last — of the Senate’s effort to bill to repeal the ACA and gut federal Medicaid funding. In this updated paper, NHeLP Managing Attorney of the LA office Kim Lewis examines how BCRA 2.0 would decimate California’s Medi-Cal program and strip coverage from 4.1 million low-income people, while simultaneously reducing Medi-Cal services for millions more.
