Trump Unveils America First Healthcare Plan


President Trump unveiled his long-awaited historic “America First” health care plan Thursday, a series of executive orders aimed at providing Americans affordable, high-quality health care while banning surprise medical billing and affirming to protect those with preexisting conditions.

“Today, I will lay out my vision for a healthcare system that puts patients first, families first, and perhaps most importantly for all of us — America first,” Trump said in remarks before signing the Executive Order in Charlotte, North Carolina Thursday afternoon. “Under the America First Healthcare Plan, we will ensure the highest standard of care anywhere in the world, cutting-edge treatments, state-of-the-art medicine, groundbreaking cures, and true health security for you and your loved ones.”

“My plan expands affordable insurance options, reduces the cost of prescription drugs, will end surprise medical billing, increases fairness through price transparency, streamlines bureaucracy, accelerates innovation, strongly protects Medicare, and always protects patients with preexisting conditions,” Trump added.
