Tax Credit Provision In GOP’s Health Bill At Odds With Some States’ Abortion Coverage Requirements

Tax credits under the House GOP’s ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill meant to help people afford insurance could be largely unusable in some blue states because of a showdown over abortion rules. The issue has largely flown under the radar, but it could have serious implications, potentially keeping people in California and New York from accessing assistance that helps them afford coverage under the bill.
