Ballad Health leaders favor Senate tax reform bill over House

Major tax reform in the United States is on the horizon, as business leaders from every sector anxiously await the outcome, including Ballad Health executives.

Like most legislation, there’s still distinct differences between Congress’ two halves, and if you ask Ballad Health Executive Chairman Alan Levine, he’s rooting for the Upper House’s latest version.

The House of Representatives already passed its version of the bill earlier this month, and a vote on the Senate’s rendition is expected as early as Thursday.

Like Levine, most healthcare heads generally favor the Senate Republican version, despite its provision that eliminates the individual mandate requiring all Americans have health insurance or be penalized.
