Biden comes back and expands Obamacare

Biden comes back and expands Obamacare”

President Biden directed his administration Thursday to reverse actions by the Trump administration that Biden said had hurt women's access to reproductive healthcare and made it harder for people to enroll in Affordable Care Act (ACA) health insurance and in Medicaid.

With the Biden measure, People may have three months - between February 15 and Might 15 - to purchase their insurance coverage by means of the HealthCare.gov web site, the federal authorities portal created below the Obama reform that permits you to have entry to insurance coverage at a decrease price than within the regular market. "Opening a special enrollment period will offer health care access to thousands of individuals whose health care has been impacted by COVID-19".

"There is nothing new that we are doing here other than restoring the Affordable Care Act and restoring the Medicaid to the way it was before Trump became president, which by fiat he changed and made it more inaccessible and more expensive and more hard for people to qualify for either of those two items", he added.

The executive orders and memorandum that Biden signed are "to undo damage [former president] Trump has done", said Biden.

As we reported earlier in Somagnews, this Thursday's movement also included an order aimed at expanding access to reproductive health services in the country, including the removal of some barriers to abortion.

"I am encouraged to see President Biden and his administration take action on this front, acknowledging the fact that so many remain without health insurance due to the continued impact of COVID-19", said Colorado Insurance Commissioner Michael Conway in a statement. Under President Trump, abortion opponents had free rein to try to rewrite federal policy, but now the political pendulum has swung back.

Although the number of uninsured Americans has grown because of job losses in the coronavirus economy, the Trump administration resisted calls to reopen HealthCare.gov. Failure to repeal and replace Obamacare as he repeatedly vowed to do was one of the former president's most bitter disappointments. He will also request a review of policies that may reduce enrollment in Medicaid, the federal health insurance program for low-income Americans, such as work requirements for recipients.

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) said that Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, "led to higher premiums, fewer options for consumers and caused millions of Americans to lose the health insurance they preferred".

A second executive order rescinds the global abortion gag rule, which bars worldwide non-profits from receiving US funding if they provide abortion counseling or referrals. It was also known as the "global gag rule".

The policy was first adopted by former U.S. President Ronald Reagan, a Republican, in 1985.

The order directs federal agencies to reexamine policies that undermine the program's protections for people who have preexisting conditions, including effects from COVID-19. "Abortion is health care".
