SARASOTA, Fla., Dec. 5, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Sarasota Injury Attorney David L. Goldman, of Shapiro Goldman Babboni & Walsh, responds to clients’ concerns about the impact of a Trump administration on healthcare coverage.
“As an attorney who often represents clients in desperate need of quality health care but with serious insurance coverage shortfalls, I have repeatedly heard may clients express concerns over how the presidential election will affect their coverage. Essentially many clients want to know, what is the future of Obamacare under a Trump administration?
There has been much speculation as to the future of Obamacare as well as the future of Medicare and Medicaid following the election of Donald J. Trump as our next president. Initially, it was thought that Obamacare would be scrapped entirely, although there were few details about what might replace the Affordable Care Act. That conventional wisdom was then placed in doubt after Donald Trump’s recent meeting with President Obama which seemed to indicate that President-Elect Trump might be amenable to keeping parts of Obamacare intact.
With the proposed appointment of Congressman Tom Price of Georgia to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a clearer outline of what future changes to health care law has begun to emerge. Price drafted a bill called the “Empowering Patients First Act” which would end Obamacare, and his appointment to HHS would likely change existing Medicare, Medicaid and health insurance law dramatically.”
Attorney Goldman, citing an article published by the Washington Post, summarized the issue by stating, “The bottom line will likely be that individuals who young, healthy, or affluent may see their premiums decrease, while those who are older, sicker and poorer will probably see an increase in their health insurance premiums. Additionally, based on Congressman Price’s past actions and statements, doctors may be allowed to charge more money to senior citizens and no longer be bound by Medicare rates. A rolling back of the expansion of Medicaid under the Obama Administration is also anticipated.”
