WHEN WILL CHANGE HAPPEN?
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 It’s all dependent on if and when Obamacare is fully repealed.
