The law requires that insurance companies may not discriminate against those with a preexisting medical condition. Insurers also are prohibited from viewing medical diagnoses on an individual level while offering coverage plans to new customers. Under one of the most popular provisions, amended in 2014, Obamacare mandates that insurance agencies must view all clients as equal entities.

Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress tried to repeal the popular piece of legislation in 2017.

 


 

Trump has falsely tweeted that he is fighting to protect patient’s rights realized under the 2010 federal law.
