Dive Brief:

U.S. President Donald Trump issued an executive order related to the Affordable Care Act just hours after his inauguration on Friday.
Under the executive order, HHS and other federal agencies with responsibilities under the ACA “shall exercise all authority and discretion available to them to waive, defer, grant exemptions from or delay implementation of any provision or requirement that would impose a fiscal burden on any state or a cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers” and more.
While the order does not immediately change former President Obama’s signature healthcare law, it sets the stage for how the Trump administration could slowly unwind enforcement of certain ACA provisions, such as the individual mandate.
