President Trump’s first executive order announces a broad policy to seek the prompt repeal of the Affordable Care Act and to implement other strategies to achieve healthcare reform, writes attorney George Reardon in The Staffing Stream. In the blog post, Reardon says the executive order is somewhat inconsistent. It declares that the policy of the Trump administration is to ensure that the law is being efficiently implemented. However, it also commands federal agencies to minimize or undo all financial and regulatory burdens that the law imposes on “individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications.”
