Fixing the Affordable Care Act?

Yesterday Democrats in the US House of representatives introduced a bill to undue the changes that the current President made to the Affordable Care Act and attempt to fix many of the broken parts of the law. The bill is called “Undo Sabotage and Expand Affordability of Health Insurance Act of 2018“.

Since the Democrats are expected to take majority control of the House of Representatives this year it seems possible that this or similar bills could be approved. Even so, the bill is largely symbolic at this point, it is highly unlikely to become law under the current president,

In short, this bill is the exact opposite of what the Republican Party wants.  It would expand availability of qualified health insurance and undo the expansion of limited benefit insurance.

The focus of my attention and the purpose of this blog is to help clients prepare for and cope with whatever the health plans and laws are, and not to take a side or offer an opinion as to the merits of any plan.
