House passes bill to separate Kansas from Affordable Care Act

A bill that seeks to remove Kansas from the Affordable Care Act — if Congress approves — passed the House on Monday. House Bill 2553, which passed 74-48, commits Kansas to join a health care compact, a hypothetical network of states that would be allowed to set up their own health insurance regulations separate from the Affordable Care Act. It now goes to the Senate.
