Affordable Care Act: Evaluating Alternatives

March 29, 2017

11:30 – 12:30 pm CT

Global Campus in Rogers or Online


Over the past decade, the United States Government has pursued a course of action to provide health care to all people under an Act known as the Affordable Care Act, later called Obamacare. The complexities of the health care industry, including hospitals, physicians, and pharmaceutical companies has been challenging. To address these complexities, the government introduced taxes, legislation, and mandates. Some believe these actions are hurting heath care delivery and affordability.

Since the 2017 presidential election, an executive order was signed to repeal and replace the ACA. Questions are being raised as to what will the new health care system be. This class will review three alternative plans being considered to replace much of the ACA. The systems to be discussed include a plan from President Donald Trump, a plan from House Speaker Paul Ryan and a plan from Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Please Note: This course is not a political statement on the ACA or any of the replacement plans being promoted.
