President Trump’s here, so now what? Get the ACA lowdown.

It’s the day after the inauguration, which officially means there’s a new president in town.

No matter what you’re feeling, good or bad, change is on the horizon — including the potential revamping of our healthcare system. We’re here to keep you in the loop on what is happening with the Affordable Care Act, but for now, let’s put some rumors to rest shall we?

The ACA, as it stands right now, is the same ACA that was here three months ago. While the ACA was enacted during President Obama’s tenure and thus dubbed “Obamacare,” the ACA will outlive its architect — at least for now.

Though President Trump promised to repeal the ACA on his first day in office (before determining that he’d be willing to keep certain aspects of it intact), this type of legislative action takes time. Regardless, the changes aren’t going to happen immediately. Why? Put simply; there are a lot of hoops and people to go through before any “deal” is signed, sealed and delivered to the American public.

So for now, we wait. In the meantime, here’s what legislators are doing/saying:

So, is this all? Of course not. Fodder is rampant — but that’s why we’re here. We’ll be periodically checking in to give you ACA updates throughout this transitional time. Afraid you’ll miss something? Sign up here to get weekly updates sent directly to your inbox.

No matter who you voted for, we’re in agreement that healthcare access and cost is an important issue. Everyone deserves healthcare that is affordable and accessible, and while there’s debate on how costs should be cut, there’s no denying that healthcare costs are high. If you agree, join us in fighting against legislation, like mandates, that drive up the cost of healthcare — for you and your fellow North Carolinians.

    Universally accessible but not universally affordable.

    The ACA Law is a tangled web. Helping Medicare and Medicaid is good but that was already done in the ACA drug pricing mandate designed to burn anyone without health insurance thus forcing them to sign up for Obamacare if for no other reason than to afford their Rx. No that Obamacare policy doesn’t pay for your Rx until you reach that $5,500 deductible but what it does do is force the pharmacy to give you the lowest price. But then, those of us well versed in the ACA Law are fully aware that the tangled web weaves throughout the healthcare system with full government/insurance control over your life. And we know that the act links your records straight to the NSA and IRS. That fellow Americans is what ACA was all about. The government taking steps to intrude in your life. It was and still is a Big Lie.
