Six things to know: How health execs might benefit from Trump’s plans
Per Trump’s healthcare position, access to health insurance will be affected by driving participation and enrollment through the principles of free market competition, says Denton. In addition to allowing enrollment in insurance coverage across state lines, the federal government may provide incentives for private insurers to make coverage more affordable, which could substantively change payment models.
Further, the government may offer tax incentives rather than penalties to encourage individuals to purchase insurance, Denton continues. For example, health savings accounts may be expanded to offer a more attractive and accessible option for individuals to fund healthcare coverage.
