Trump signs ACA executive order

January 25, 2017

President Trump started his presidency by signing an executive order that seeks to minimize any burdens caused by the Affordable Care Act.

In the order, Trump states that the administration is working to have the ACA repealed.




 "In the meantime, pending such repeal, it is imperative for the executive branch to ensure that the law is being efficiently implemented, take all actions consistent with the law to minimize the unwarranted economic and regulatory burden of the act, and prepare to afford the states more flexibility and control to create a more free and open healthcare market," according to the text of the order.

Trump authorizes the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and other executive departments and agencies to minimize ACA-related burdens to the maximum extent permitted by law, by waiving, deferring granting exemptions from or delaying the implementation of provisions that would pose a fiscal or regulatory burden on "individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products or medications," according to the order text.
