House begins bipartisan efforts to reform ACA

In the wake of the Senate's failure to pass a bill repealing and replacing the ACA, a bipartisan group of Representatives in the House has begun crafting legislation to stabilize ACA exchanges, according to Politico.

Tom Reed, R-N.Y., and Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J., lead the Problem Solvers caucus which, along with the New Democrat Coalition and the moderate Republican Tuesday Group, is working to provide $7 billion for cost-sharing subsidies to help people with deductibles and other payments.

The group's other goals include increasing the size of companies subject to the ACA's employer insurance mandate from 50 employees to 500 and also repealing the medical device tax.
