WHEN WILL CHANGE HAP­PEN?

Wellness Update - - News -

Pres­i­dent-Elect Trump said re­peat­edly on his elec­tion cam­paign trail that he would make it a top pri­or­ity to quickly re­peal the ACA once he takes of­fice, yet how quickly can he do it? Again, it’s still too early to tell how long be­fore the ACA has been scrapped and it’ll be even longer be­fore Amer­i­cans will know what its re­place­ment will look like. What has been re­ported how­ever is that the Repub­li­cans de nitely in­tend to ‘re­peal then re­place‘ the ACA.

The im­por­tant thing to re­mem­ber is this: re­peal­ing and re­plac­ing Oba­macare is not go­ing to hap­pen on the rst day. With the US rep­re­sen­ta­tives set­tling back into their roles, House Ma­jor­ity Leader Kevin McCarthy has hinted that it could take the whole of 2017, and some of 2018, to fully com­plete the scrap­ping of the ACA and pro­vid­ing an al­ter­na­tive to the Amer­i­can peo­ple.

So what does this mean for those of you still won­der­ing about your health in­sur­ance cov­er­age, es­pe­cially those liv­ing abroad? It’s all de­pen­dent on if and when Oba­macare is fully re­pealed.
