“ACA’s Future Hangs in the Balance”
Managed Healthcare Executive 11/15/16 Sarah E. Coyne
Below is an excerpt:
President-elect Donald Trump has not made a secret of the fact that he is not a fan of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), indicating he will repeal and replace it, although details have been scant. It is unlikely that Trump will have the Congressional support to achieve a complete repeal, and this week, after meeting with President Obama, he states that he may leave portions of it intact.
Trump’s changes have the potential to wreak havoc on patients, providers, payers and employer health plans as well as all of their business partners because many aspects of the ACA have been assimilated into the healthcare system.
