An idea to replace Obamacare

An idea to replace Obamacare

President Trump may be backpedaling on promises to swiftly repeal and replace Obamacare, reported Politico. That was followed by the Savannah media market, with 40,683; Augusta, 24,960; Macon, 20,407; Columbus, 18,510, and Albany, 12,410. The remaining states run their own health care exchanges.

Given Trump's apparent anti-abortion stance, coupled with his determination to see Roe v. Wade repealed by the Supreme Court of the United States, according to CNN, it doesn't actually seem to make a whole lot of sense that he would then also want to make contraception more hard for women to actually get. According to The New York Times, the teen pregnancy rate in Colorado fell by 40 percent between 2009 to 2013, and the rate of abortions amongst teens also fell by 42 percent. Federal figures Wednesday showed 352,282 Georgians had enrolled in a 2017 health plan in the insurance exchange through December 19, slightly above the 345,736 figure from a year before. The idea is that, because the ACA requires most people to have some sort of health insurance, hospitals will be treating more paying patients. He has already signed an executive order for the same.

The Wall Street Journal reports that hospitals are anxious that a repeal of the ACA that does not restore these and other federal funds would leave care providers on the hook.

In past years, the final two weeks of enrollment have shown a surge in sign-ups, as people have sought to beat the deadline. Price, who is a staunch opponent of the ACA, could hold the same authority that Obama administration officials granted to its health officials-which allowed them to implement many ACA-related rules-to instead unwind the law. Insurers don't want to provide people coverage if they have a medical history.
