Recently, there was a new health care bill that was put into action in the United States. This bill has the potential to mold the United States’ health insurance structure. President Donald Trump has plans to have healthcare transform immensely, which would affect many, if not all, Americans.

The healthcare bill was issued on May 4th, 2017. “This is a great plan. I actually think it will get even better. This is a repeal and replace of Obamacare,” said President Donald Trump at a White House appearance. President Donald Trump also says that he guarantees coverage for all Americans that have pre- existing conditions. However, this could cause these Americans to face higher rates and possibly have potential holes or gaps in their insurance plans, according to CNN.com. Insurers are capable of raising the rates to cover these conditions which would significantly increase costs or insurance for these Americans. This bill has many benefits for the young Americans, but not so much for the elderly. Through this bill, young Americans are expected to save up to $4,000 a year, whereas the elderly could face increasing rates.

The new Republican healthcare bill brings up questions: Will Trumpcare replace Obamacare? Will this help all Americans? Only time will tell.
