MiBiz.com: ACA likely to remain law, but opponents will continue chipping away

Posted on January 02, 2018

Laura AppelMHA Chief Innovation Officer & Senior Vice President Laura Appel was interviewed for a Dec. 24 MiBiz.com article about what’s to come for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2018.

The ACA withstood repeal efforts in 2017, but Appel and others believe opponents of the legislation will continue to “chip away” at the law that provides healthcare coverage to nearly 1 million Michiganders. Appel also talked about the impact of the repeal of the individual mandate as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was signed into law in late December. Repealing the individual mandate is expected to raise premiums across the board as younger, healthier people opt to go uninsured.

“It’s really going to have a significant impact on the individual market, and I also wonder what it will have on the group market,” Appel told MiBiz.com.
