The future of ACA

MRG Final Blank Header

Under the new leadership of Republican candidate President Donald Trump, the healthcare industry may experience serious changes to the Affordable Care Act.  With a republican majority in both the house and senate, we can expect to see a move toward more mergers and consolidations in the healthcare industry.  With regards to the ACA, Dr. Gary Kaplan, CEO of the not-for-profit Virginia Mason Health System in Seattle said, “I think that we can put together great minds and make some further improvements and hopefully take it out of being a political football.”  The changes that Donald Trump talked about throughout the presidential race included repealing and replacing of the ACA.  I think the ACA will require modifications to its current state before repeals are carried out.  This will be a slow process in modifying the ACA and the Republican House will need to figure out ways to help people afford and maintain their coverage.
