ACA Repeal and Replace: How Will Chronic Pain Patients Fare
from Practical Pain Management
On March 6, House Republicans unveiled their plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The proposed legislation, called the American Health Care Act (AHCA), involves sweeping changes to both access and funding. By most estimates, the ACA provided coverage to an additional 20 million Americans. Many of the newly covered are worried that the new bill might change that. According to a recent Practical Pain Management (PPM) survey, 67 percent of physicians say their patients expressed concern that an ACA repeal might prevent them from seeing their doctors.
