With GOP Plan Dead, Trump Weighs Other Ways to Reshape Health Care

The fight over healthcare was one at the local level with people turning out to tell their representatives and senators face to face that they wouldn’t sacrifice their lives for a tax cut for the rich.

But the fight’s not over. Trump and Tom Price will do everything they can to make the ACA collapse, unless we continue to fight them. There will be a whole new set of fights that will just be beginning.

“The initiative now rests with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, who has vowed to review every page of regulation and guidance related to the ACA. The steps he and the administration take next could have sweeping repercussions, accomplishing some of the same types of changes Republicans were unable to push through Congress.

“The Trump administration could weaken a requirement that most Americans pay a penalty for not having insurance. It could usher in work requirements for Medicaid recipients and ease a directive that insurers cover such services as contraception. And it could also allow an end to certain subsidies that insurers get, which could quickly cause the individual markets to crater.”
