Proposed Trump Budget Includes About $1 Trillion in Cuts for Medicaid and ObamaCare

The proposed Trump Budget released in 2020 includes about $1 trillion in cuts for Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare).

$844 billion is cut over 10 years via a new version of “repeal and replace” called the “President’s health reform vision,” and $150 billion is cut from implementing Medicaid work requirements which are projected to result in many losing their current Medicaid health coverage.

The budget also calls for a $600 billion budget reduction of Medicare through savings.

The budget doesn’t go into specifics on all of the cuts, but instead gives a general overview. We will keep you updated on specifics of the plan as more is released.
