House Republicans have secured a change in ObamaCare to expand coverage choices for small businesses — a departure from their strategy to try to dismantle or repeal the 2010 health care law.
The change eliminated a cap on deductibles for small group policies American can buy directly from insurers or on the new health care exchanges. The cap was set at $2,000 for individuals and $4,000 for families.
Democrats describe the change as a straightforward improvement of the type they are eager to make, and Obama signed it into law.
Republicans say they sought the change so small businesses could offer high-deductible plans that could be bought by individuals who also have health savings accounts.
“Maybe you say it helps (ObamaCare), but it really helps the small businessman,” said GOP Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., one of several physician-lawmakers in his party and an advocate of repeal.
