Rewind: New York State Faces Familiar Issues and New Challenges in the “Repeal and Replace” Era

Author/Editor: Peter Newell


Key provisions in the American Health Care Act—part of the plan by the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act—would undermine many of New York State’s recent gains in coverage and market stability, and have financial and affordability effects particular to New York.

This issue brief reviews the progress New York has made through the ACA, and consider the challenges ahead as New York enters the “repeal and replace” era.
