President Trump offers vision for health care

Feb. 28, 2017
In his address to a joint session in Congress, President Trump offered a glimpse of what a replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act should look like. President Trump reiterated his belief that the individual mandate should be repealed and emphasized the need for a “stable transition” for patients currently on the ACA exchanges. Additionally, he reiterated that a new health care system should help Americans purchase health care coverage through the use of tax credits and expanded health savings accounts. He also called for more flexibility for patients by allowing them to purchase coverage across state lines.
