With Obamacare again on the chopping block this year at U.S. Supreme Court, it’s possible that the national health care law’s mandate that insurance companies offer free preventive care (e.g., annual checkups, vaccinations) will disappear, leaving it up to states to decide whether health insurance companies should be required to offer this type of care at no charge.
In a radio interview this morning, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) responded directly to former President Barack Obama’s point in a speech last week that the U.S. economy had turned around in 2015 and 2016, not during the Trump presidency.
