Will Your Healthcare Change with the new Presidential Administration in 2017?
CHATTANOOGA. Tenn. (WDEF)- In just three days, health insurance policies will go into effect for millions of Americans who signed up before the deadline while those who didn’t register, and aren’t exempt, will face a steep penalty.
President-Elect Donald Trump promised to repeal ObamaCare, and after the election, he announced he would keep some things while replacing others.
And with inauguration day approaching, many Americans are questioning how those changes could affect their health insurance now, but experts say there’s no need to worry.
“There won’t be any changes taking place in the next year, and just like when the Affordable Care Act came into place, it took several years to get those changes rolled through; all the processes that have to go into play. So any changes that are gonna be made, it’s gonna be two and three years down the road,” said Brianne Lee who is an Independent Insurance Agent.
Trump has promised to replace parts of the Affordable Care Act, with things like tax deductions for health care premiums and block grants for state Medicaid programs.
