Healthcare Provisions in the House Version of the Build Back Better Act

The House passed its version of the Build Back Better Act with a narrow 220-213 vote that ran mostly along party lines. The bill now goes to the Senate, where it is expected to undergo substantial changes over the next few months, before returning to the House, if and when the Senate can reach agreement and pass it by a simple majority under reconciliation.
