ITUP ACA Watch, Issue 1 – FAQs on ACA Repeal and Replace
Insure the Uninsured Project (ITUP) today launched a new publication series to be known as ACA Watch.
In the wake of the 2016 Presidential election, California’s reform progress, and progress around the country, is at risk. President-Elect Trump, and Republican members of Congress now in the majority in both houses, campaigned on a platform of repealing and replacing the ACA. It is, however, far from clear what comes next.
As the federal repeal and replace debate unfolds, ITUP’s ACA Watch will periodically highlight emerging federal proposals, Congressional and administrative actions and potential impacts for health care and health reform in California.
The first issue in the series, “An Uncertain Future for the ACA: FAQs on Repeal and Replace,” highlights the legal and administrative context for any repeal or rollback of the ACA. Given Congressional rules and federal administrative procedures, there are limits and specific requirements for pursuing repeal legislatively or through administrative action.
