The HIDA Government Affairs staff continues to monitor changing healthcare legislative and regulatory priorities as a result of the 2016 presidential election. Members please log in at upper right of site to view resources below.
The November 8, 2016, election was a historic upset, with Donald Trump winning the key battleground states of Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina. Trump was also able to win the traditionally Democratic states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. Republicans in the House of Representatives were able to limit their losses to the single digits, ensuring a Republican controlled House, while Republicans fended off substantive challenges in the Senate and maintained control of the upper chamber as well.
Replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continues to be a top priority for the president and GOP lawmakers, despite their lack of success to date. A majority of Republican lawmakers remain opposed to the ACA. President-elect Trump and a Republican Congress face stiff challenges when finding a path to repeal the ACA without causing major disruptions to the health insurance marketplace.
