Here’s How the Trump Healthcare Plan Is Different From Obamacare
President Trump’s plan to reform healthcare took a big step forward last week, when the House of Representatives voted to repeal and replace Obamacare with an entirely new health insurance system. This new health insurance program — the American Health Care Act, or Trumpcare — is very different from the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, so let’s learn more about it.
What Trumpcare does
The American Health Care Act (AHCA) does away with requirement that all Americans buy health insurance. It ends the federal subsidies that reduced health insurance premiums for people purchasing plans through the Obamacare health insurance marketplaces, and it gets rid of the federalcost-sharing payments that low-income Americans used to help pay for healthcare that insurance didn’t cover, such as co-pays.
The health insurance industry could look very different soon now that Donald Trump's healthcare plan is advancing through Congress.
