Health – President Trump Signs ACA Executive Order

In one of his first actions after being sworn in, President Trump signed an executive order regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) instructing federal agencies to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay any part of the law that the agency determines negatively impacts those affected. Those affected include consumers, doctors, hospitals, insurers, pharmaceutical companies and other health care providers.

The Arc is concerned about the impact these executive actions may have and will monitor them closely.
