Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (42 U.S.C. 254b-2(b)(1)(E)
is amended by striking "for fiscal year 2015" and inserting "for each
of fiscal years 2015 through 2017". ", and an additional $422,000,000
for fiscal year 2017".
Section 102 of the American Health Care Act adds $422 million to cover fiscal

has gone, including the taxes which I assume will be addressed later.

payments to states. It is an exceptionally long section, so it will be covered
