Skinny repeal fails Senate

The Health Care Freedom Act, also known as the “skinny repeal” bill that would have been a partial repeal of the Affordable Care Act failed in the Senate 49-51 early Friday morning. The bill would have removed the individual mandate, medical device tax and employee coverage requirement.

NRHA urges the Senate to work together to fix rural health care. Any repeal and replace efforts must provide improved access to care in rural America and ensure vulnerable and underserved rural Americans are not left without access to care. At minimum, Congress needs to address Medicaid, insurance market reform and stopping bad debt cuts to rural hospitals.
