At the time of this printing, President Donald J. Trump should have been in office for at least 10 days. During one of the most contentious primary and general election processes that our country has ever endured, there was lots of discussion surrounding the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as “Obamacare,” signed into law by former President Barack Obama. The campaigns became polarized into two camps: those who were passionate about “repeal and replace” and those who were entrenched in protecting the path of this landmark legislation.
The future of the ACA represents a rare opportunity for ASA and organized medicine to have an impact around the shape of the changes coming forward that will effect access and quality for our patients, and the economics of our health care system. To that end, your ASA leadership has appointed a blue ribbon, high-level committee to work with our members throughout the country to identify key issues of concern to our patients and our practices and give key advice that will determine ASA’s position moving forward.
