Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy are considering three new Alaska-specific changes to their health care proposal to gain the backing of Sen. Lisa Murkowski, according to the Independent Journal Review.

What they’re offering: 

  • Alaska and Hawaii would “continue to receive Obamacare’s premium tax credits” despite them getting repealed in the rest of the country.
  • Medicaid per capita caps are delayed for both Alaska and Hawaii.
  • Both states get “an increased federal Medicaid matching rate”
Why it matters: Murkowski was one 3 GOP no-votes on health care earlier this year.
