House Republicans have proposed amendments aimed at providing more assistance for older people, curbing Medicaid and accelerating the repeal of some increase taxes.
The bill would let individuals deduct more medical costs from taxes and it would repeal many tax increases supported by President Barack Obama's 2010 statute this year instead of 2018.
Older and disabled Medicaid recipients would get more generous benefits but states could set work requirements for the program.
The bill would let the Senate approve tax credits more generous to people age 50 to 64. Congressional analysts say the current GOP legislation would hit many with big cost increases.
GOP leaders released the changes late Monday, three days ahead of a planned House vote on the bill.

Whatever back room changes Ryan is making to the healthcare bill will be too little, too late. ACA was an imperfect bill. This is a bad one.— flippable (@flippable_org) March 21, 2017
Here's what a few people had to say regarding healthcare changes.
These minor changes to this bill will not change the fiasco it is. The incredible suffering it will cause is unconscionable. Shame GOP.— Barry Handelsman (@darayya1) March 21, 2017
