Issue Brief: The Future of Health Care Reform

With less than two weeks left until a new president is elected, the Kansas Health Institute has released an issue brief entitled, The Future of Health Care Reform, which summarizes the health care reform proposals of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and House Republicans. Both Trump and Clinton have released their plans on their campaign websites and through the national media, and House Republicans published a 37-page report in June detailing a replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act (ACA–or Obamacare).   

The Kansas Health Institute supports effective policymaking through nonpartisan research, education and engagement. KHI believes evidence-based information, objective analysis and civil dialogue enable policy leaders to be champions for a healthier Kansas. Established in 1995 with a multiyear grant from the Kansas Health Foundation, KHI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization based in Topeka.
