A livestream of the vote will also be available on Reuters

House Republicans have battled each other over the terms of their repeal bill, arguing over whether or not the replacement bill will require insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions as the ACA does.

Do Republicans have enough votes?

President Donald Trump reportedly won over two Republican hold outs on the measure Wednesday, which would give Republicans enough votes to pass the bill.

"We're optimistic that we'll pass it out of the House today," Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, chairman of the conservative Freedom Caucus, told MSNBC's Morning Joe Thursday morning.

House Democrats have vowed to vote en bloc against the repeal, which is expected to change drastically when it reaches the Senate.
