What Trump’s Executive Order Means for Healthcare

October 03, 2019 / Andrew Hirschfeld

President Donald Trump signed an executive order this afternoon in Florida, pushing for further privatization of Medicare. The ‘Executive Order on Protecting and Improving Medicare for Our Nation’s Seniors’ focuses on expanding Medicare Advantage. It will expand the role of private insurers to offer benefits rather than the government. “The Executive Order will improve upon privately-run Medicare Advantage plans, and provide seniors with more benefit choices,” says Lindsay Bealor Greenleaf, director of policy at the global healthcare consulting firm ADVI Health.
