President’s Healthcare Orders Seek to Expand Coverage

Reverses several policies of the prior administration. 

Last week, President Biden signed a batch of executive orders designed to tackle what he described as the “damage” done by the previous administration. According to the president, the actions were not creating a new policy, but rather, followed the proper enforcement of existing law. He said, “I am not initiating any new law, any new aspect of the law. This is going back to what the situation was prior to the president’s executive order.”

The first order directed federal agencies to create a special enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act exchanges to allow Americans to get health coverage. Also included is a federal review of the changes made under President Trump’s administration to determine if there are any unnecessary roadblocks to coverage. The president also signed an order revoking the Mexico City policy which prevented federal funds to be given to foreign aid groups that provide abortion-related services. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would work through the current administration to protect the lives of the vulnerable.
  • For the Lord to give President Biden wisdom on the best health policies to support while he is in office.
  • That God would help the White House improve the health of all Americans.
