Plan to Repeal, Replace Obamacare Has 5 Key Points


House Republicans have unveiled details of a bill that would repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

The plan, revealed Monday, would:

--Replace income-based premium subsidies with age-based ones that may not provide as much assistance to people with low incomes.

--Provide monthly tax credits to help low- and middle-income people and families buy health insurance if their employers don't provide it.

--Eliminate current mandates that required individuals to be insured.

The GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare actually keeps some of the most popular rules:

--The bill prohibits health insurers from denying people if they have a pre-existing condition.

--It allows young adults to stay on their parents' health insurance plans until age 26.

The plan is expected to cover fewer than the 20 million people insured under President Barack Obama's overhaul, including many people in states that President Donald Trump carried in the election.
