With the election behind us, it’s time to look forward. Many things will change with a new President in the White House, but I doubt as many as you think. Every conservative predicted the end of the world with Obama, but we’re still here. So, deep breath… One thing that most definitely will change, and I’d argue is the main reason Trump got elected, is ACA or Obamacare. It took a back seat to so many other issues, but I think the shock of the insurance notices swayed the votes just enough in those swing states.
I have a unique experience with ACA in that I’ve had to address it in my job and personally. I’ve bought my insurance on the exchange and seen it more than quadruple. I’ve searched for insurance offerings for the employees at TriCorps and seen how limited the options are, but also how the system was gamed to meet the letter of the law, but probably not the spirit of the law.
