A note to patients on the Affordable Care Act

With the election of Donald J. Trump, America has entered uncharted political landscape. One of his key promises has been: “On day one … we will ask Congress to immediately deliver a full repeal of Obamacare.” 
While we believe a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will be far more difficult than we think, none the less, we are already taking the steps necessary to ensure our patients and clients that no one will be turned away for lack of insurance. This is one of our core values; it has always been our practice and will continue to be. 
We also want to point out that although there are many proposed changes to the ACA they do not impact some of the most popular provisions including the requirement that health insurers cannot refuse coverage to those with pre-existing conditions. 
While time will tell what will happen, we are taking the steps necessary to ensure that all our patients will continue to be able to access medical care. At Mazzoni Center, we value your health and wellness and we believe that health care is a right, not a privilege.
