Kaiser says in a Sept. 20 report that the Graham-Cassidy proposal would:
- Repeal the Medicaid expansion and subsidies for individual insurance—including premium tax credits, cost-sharing reductions, and the basic health program—in 2020.
- Put the money into a new block-grant program to states in 2020-26. States could use the funds "to cover the cost of high-risk patients, assist individuals with premiums and cost-sharing, pay directly for health care services, or provide health insurance to a limited extent to people eligible for Medicaid," Kaiser reports.
- Cap state-by-state federal funding of the traditional Medicaid program for the poor and disabled.
- Repeal the mandates requiring individuals to have health insurance and employers to offer it, and let states waive required benefits and community rating, which prevents insurers from charging higher premiums to people with pre-existing conditions.
Kaiser's report has three state-by-state tables, showing the projected differences in federal spending for ACA coverage, the total change in federal spending due to the block-grant program and the limit on Medicaid; and the projected loss of federal funds due to those factors.
The New York Times showed the funding changes per person, in charts that were color-coded: first by states that expanded Medicaid (in green), then by states (in orange) with senators who voted against one of the Obamacare repeal bills in July:
