Amid great speculation about how the Trump presidency will impact healthcare and providers, including dermatologists, there’s one thing that’s clear.
We don’t know much.
Nancy Taylor, shareholder and co-chair of the health and FDA business practice at the international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, says that while some expect that President-elect Trump will seek a repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act, it is likely to be a “precision” repeal of only those issues that are considered burdensome on individuals, business, insurers and governors.
“President-elect Trump and his team have many proposals and will rely on key Congressional Republican leaders to find a pathway that balances expansion of coverage, while reducing healthcare costs from less complex regulations and greater consumer engagement. A repeal bill without a thoughtful replacement may cause significant disruption to those with coverage and to providers, especially in rural and medically underserviced areas,” Ms. Taylor says.
