Former HHS Secretary’s Leavitt Partners: 73% Chance GOP Will Change Individual Mandate

Health policy analysts predict a 73 percent chance that the individual mandate requirement in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will be modified, stalled or repealed if Republicans gain a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to an analysis by Leavitt Partners, the firm founded by former HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt.

Likely modifications to the mandate include raising the income threshold of those exempt from the requirement or denying funding to the IRS to hire staff to enforce the provision.
