Health Care Costs – Initial post due Thursday by 11:55 PM
On January 20, 2017, President Donald Trump was sworn ti as the 45th President of the United States. During the Trump Campaign he claimed to abolish the The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) that became law on March 23, 2010 when President Barack Obama signed the Bill. Although President Trump promised to keep several portions of the current law intact, his administration plans to INSERT many of the provisions of the PPACA. In a article published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), PubMed Central (PMC) and the National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, Sara Rosenbaum attempts to identify some of the more important features of this legislation. Use the following link to access Rosenbaum’s (2011) article, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: Implications for Public Health Policy and Practicefrom: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3001814/
