Affordable Care Act 150 150 Affordable Capstone Projects Written from Scratch


Hey this is going to be a literature review of 8 journals. I will provide you with the 8 journals, 2 sets of directions, and a sample literature review. This is a follow up of 2 other assignments that I completed so I will provide you with those as well. In the directions it says, “select an issue (problem) within your discipline that scholars and/or practitioners are dealing with currently,” so I selected the affordable care act. It says to come up with a question so the question I choose is, “How does the presidency of Trump, affect the Affordable Care Act?” If you want to edit it to sound better you can but please let me know what question you decide. Thank you!

Answer preview

Affordable Care Act

In 2010 under the Obama administration, the Democrats passed the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and it was introduced to the United States healthcare sector. The act was set to help improve the accessibility of health care and its affordability to the average American citizen.  American citizens who had pre-existing conditions could now be able to access health insurance. The healthcare reform act has helped more than 20 million Americans get better access to healthcare. The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has reduced the cost of healthcare. The Obamacare lowers the cost of health care in three ways.  It makes health insurance affordable through providing incentives and subsidies, emphasizes preventive care, and has helped improve the delivery of healthcare.  However, the act has received criticism from the current United States president Donald Trump. This paper serves to discuss the impacts that Trump presidency has had on the Affordable Care Act.

How does the presidency of Trump affect the Affordable Care Act?

According to an article by Page (2016, p.1), the ACA was passed to allow universal coverage of health care, and it provides support to Americans who are aiming to buy private insurance and further expands Medicaid. According to Page (2016, p.1), Medicaid is a program by the government to cover citizens with low incomes. The Trump presidency aims at replacing the reform law with new policies. Trump hopes to reduce the spending on Medicare by negotiating prices of drugs with the manufacturing companies. Trump aims at allowing the insurance companies to sell the health care policies to states.

The End of Obamacare

In the election period, there was uncertainty about the future of the ACA that caused an uproar in the U.S health policy. The act is not receiving support from the new Trump administration and the Republicans.
