American Rescue Plan addresses the Affordable Care Act's unfinished business

The American Rescue Plan was signed into law by President Joe Biden on Thursday March 11, 2021.

A lot of news has covered the inclusion of the $1,400 stimulus check, but there is a lot in the bill concerning health and health care policy. For example, the American Rescue Plan offers financial incentives to states that have yet to expand Medicaid. In addition, the bill expands the eligibility for health insurance subsidies and temporarily relieves premium tax credit claw backs for 2020. These changes are expected to extend coverage to about 2.5 million uninsured consumers from 2021 through 2023.

On today’s episode of Health Affairs This Week, Georgetown University faculty member and Health Affairs Contributing Editor Katie Keith joins Health Affairs Blog Editor Chris Fleming to discuss what’s in the American Rescue Plan for health care.
