With a new administration taking office that is sure to take a dramatically different approach to healthcare than the last, many employers across the country are eagerly anticipating word on if/how things will change with regards to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We have heard from of our clients over the past couple of months on this very topic, so our healthcare compliance team has put together a summary of what exactly the now-famous phrase "repeal and replace" means by exploring what can and/or could be changed and how the Trump Administration and Congress would do it. We hope you find this piece helpful in clarifying where healthcare in America stands at this moment.
Despite a stalemate in Congress over a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, President Donald Trump says his efforts on health care are “doing very well” and that he still wants a bill passed before tackling tax reform.
The White House prodded House Republican leaders to make last-minute tweaks to their ACA replacement bill Thursday aimed at protecting “high-risk” patients before lawmakers leave Washington for their two-week spring break.
