US President Donald Trump hit ObamaCare even as an insurance company expressed plans to leave the health reform measure’s marketplace.
“Obamacare continues to fail. Humana to pull out in 2018. Will repeal, replace & save healthcare for ALL Americans,” Trump tweeted.
His tweet provided a link to a report published online by The Hill which quoted Humana’s statement as saying that the company “is seeing further signs of an unbalanced risk pool” and thus “has decided that it cannot continue to offer this coverage for 2018.”
ObamaCare is the informal name for the Affordable Care Act that was signed into law by Trump’s predecessor, former President Barack Obama.
Among others, the reform measure sets up an online marketplace where Americans can access subsidized health insurance.
