Politicization of the CDC leaves those of us living with HIV wondering who to believe

The country’s ability to weather the COVID-19 pandemic is rooted in our trust that decisions are being made based on the best scientific evidence. The recent erosion of the wall between science and politics also erodes the HIV community’s trust.

The Affordable Care Act May Be In Trouble...Again

If the value of a good piece of legislation can be measured by the frequency and tenacity with which its opponents try to get it invalidated, it’s not an understatement to say that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is one of the most successful health care laws ever created. Earlier this week, a three-judge panel in New Orleans heard oral arguments in Texas v. United States, the latest legal challenge to the constitutionality of the ACA.

With Cuts to Navigator Program, the Trump Administration Continues Sabotage of the ACA

If it wasn’t evident by this point that the Trump administration really doesn’t want all Americans to have access to health care, their decision this week to once again slash funding for the Affordable Care Act’s Exchange Navigator Program should make it clear enough.

Medicaid Work Requirements Gain Momentum in the Midwest and South

Last Friday, Governor Rick Snyder (R) signed legislation that will make Michigan the most recent state to approve work requirements for Medicaid recipients. The new law, expected to be approved quickly by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), would require “able-bodied” Michiganders to work at least 80 hours a week or lose their health coverage and mirrors much of what is contained in Kentucky's Medicaid work requirement, the legality of which is currently in question.

Trump Administration Refuses to Defend ACA in Court, Potentially Jeopardizing Health Care for Millions

For 18 months, the Trump administration has routinely and aggressively threatened the Affordable Care Act and the tens of millions of Americans for whom it provides health care coverage, but their attacks had remained largely in the province of Executive Orders weakening regulations or demands to Congress. That all changed on Thursday night when the Trump administration said that it would not defend the Affordable Care Act in court in the case of a lawsuit filed by 20 Republican-led states, claiming that the health care law is unconstitutional.

As Some States Make Plans to Codify Their Own Individual Mandate, Others Try To Dismantle the ACA

In the wake of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act's Individual Mandate in the GOP Tax Bill that was passed in December, a number of states have considered taking it onto themselves to implement their own individual mandates. That, plus, Idaho attempts to undermine the ACA.

Open Enrollment Begins Despite Trump’s Efforts to Weaken the Affordable Care Act

Despite continued action taken by the Trump Administration to undermine the Affordable Care Act (ACA), open enrollment for 2018 coverage began on Wednesday on healthcare.gov. This year’s sign-up period is about half what it has been in past years; it will only be open until December 15 in most states. Further, the advertising budget for ACA open enrollment was cut by 90 percent by the Administration, which will likely decrease knowledge of enrollment significantly.

Against All Odds, Senators Push Bipartisan Legislation to Sustain the Affordable Care Act

It would appear that the rumors of the ACA’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Despite the calculated sabotage of the ACA by the Trump administration and Congressional Republican leadership, a 4th season of open enrollment for health insurance marketplaces is only days away and a bipartisan compromise to keep cost sharing reduction (CSR) payments meant to subsize co-payments, deductibles and other expenses for people with low incomes flowing for another 2 years has considerable support in the Senate.
