Update on President Trump’s ACA plan
President Donald Trump signed an executive order to “Minimize the Economic Burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pending Repeal” which is a very broad directive to move to make the regulation easier and less costly on states, individuals, and what is being interpreted as employers. The order calls for change and provides some guidance as to what needs to be changed but does not in fact change anything. The intent is to soften pieces of the ACA until repeal and replacement can be accomplished. In order for a repeal to take place, it will take a coordinated effort with Congress.
