Scott Walker to Lay Out Plan to Repeal, Replace Obamacare

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is prepared to call out members of his own party Tuesday as he unveils his own plan to repeal and replace Obamacare that involves refundable tax credits, an overhaul of Medicaid and reforms to long-term care.

Mr. Walker’s plan would provide refundable tax credits based on age to people who don’t have employer-based coverage and increase limits on tax-free health savings accounts while providing a tax credit to anyone who signs up for an HSA.

The plan would also allow people to shop for insurance across state lines, leverage federal funds provided to the states to protect people with pre-existing conditions through items like high-risk pools, and give states more power on how to use their federal Medicaid dollars, according to a copy obtained by Politico.

Mr. Walker’s plan would also deregulate the long-term care insurance market and incentivize states to reform litigation tied to medical services.
