U.S. Senate Republicans on June 22, 2017, unveiled a "discussion draft" of their healthcare plan, the Better Care Reconciliation Act. This memorandum provides highlights of key provisions.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will release its score as soon as Monday, June 26. The Senate intends to vote on the bill on Thursday, June 29. It's unclear whether the votes exist for passage; a maximum of two GOP Senate no votes are allowed (assuming no Democrats support). The bill is a "discussion draft" and additional changes are possible.
