While there has been a lot of discussion around what a repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would mean for the individual marketplace and Medicaid, many forget that the ACA also had reforms for Medicare. The Kaiser Family Foundation has released a new issue brief which examines the effects an ACA repeal would have for the Medicare program. The brief addresses how repeal would affect the ACA reforms for Medicare in the areas of payments to healthcare providers and the Medicare advantage plans, improved Medicare benefits including closing the prescription drug “donut hole” and additional revenues intended to secure the Medicare trust fund. To download a copy of the brief entitled “What Are the Implications of Repealing the Affordable Care Act for Medicare Spending and Beneficiaries?”, click here.
