The updated Senate wealthcare Bill

Just came out today. This link breaks down the changes simply and concisely. For example, the new plan would:

Allow insurers to offer cheaper, slimmed-down coverage as long as they offer at least one plan meeting Obamacare standards. Experts have warned that such a provision could severely threaten access to coverage for sick patients.

Overhaul the traditional Medicaid program covering low-income children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with disabilities. Instead of receiving open-ended funding from the federal government, states would receive a set amount per enrollee and have new flexibility to run their programs. Certain vulnerable populations could be protected from the spending cap. States would have the option to add work requirements for able-bodied adults.
