Now what? Long-Term Care after the American Health Care Act

The administration has signaled a three-pronged strategy for overhauling health care in America. First, repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and replace it with new legislation. Second, implement aggressive regulatory actions by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Third, advance specific pieces of new legislation that have bipartisan support.

While the initial replacement legislation, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), was pulled from a vote in the House, leaders are now shifting to HHS and regulatory actions in an effort to advance their policy interests.
