U.S. Republicans working on Medicaid, tax credit changes - Ryan

Reuters  |  WASHINGTON 

(Reuters) - U.S. House Republicans are working on changes to their healthcare overhaul bill that would implement a work requirement for the Medicaid program for the poor, as well as boost credits for older, lower people, U.S. House Speaker Paul said on Sunday.

"We think we should be offering more assistance than the bill currently does," for lower-people age 50 to 64, said of the credits for health insurance that are proposed in the legislation.

Speaking on the "Fox Sunday" television program, also said Republicans are working on changes that would allow federal block grants to states for Medicaid. Lawmakers plan to have the healthcare legislation on the House floor this Thursday, said.
