A Trump Presidency - Potential Impacts on Employee Benefits Law and Policy
If there is one thing that the Republican Party has promised over the last six years, it has been a repeal and replacement of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (â€śACAâ€ť). With a Republican majority in congress and Trump as President-Elect, we can certainly expect to learn more about his proposed health care policies, including the repeal of the ACA, in the coming weeks and months. With that said, one point is clear: there is very little certainty about what effect the incoming administration will have on employer-sponsored healthcare benefits.
Unfortunately, one can only be left to guess what the Trump administrationâ€™s plans for the future are. President Trump has promised to â€śrepeal and replaceâ€ť the Affordable Care Act; however, an outright repeal seems unlikely. Repealing the entire law, which has completely reshaped the healthcare system over the last six years, would result in utter chaos.
