The State of Healthcare
if the Democrats Sweep in November

Read the White Paper

Our latest white paper outlines how a hypothetical Democratic sweep in November could impact healthcare (attached). This brief is among the first and most comprehensive analyses to address the topic. Democratic topics and priorities Douglas Hervey covers include:

  • ACA Individual Market-Strengthen individual market and provide cost-sharing subsidies
  • Medicaid Expansion-Incentivize Medicaid expansion through enhanced federal funding
  • 1332 Waivers-Roll back waivers and limit association and short-term health plans
  • Surprise Billing-Protect patients from surprise medical bills for out-of-network treatment
  • Drug Price Reform-Engage in drug price reform, particularly around Part D
  • Value-Based Care-Accelerate payment and delivery reforms more broadly and equitably

In the coming weeks, Cicero Group will be releasing a separate article on how a President Trump reelection could impact healthcare. Cicero Group does not endorse platforms or policies; nor does it endorse the healthcare positions covered in these briefs. Rather, Cicero Group highlights perspectives across the political spectrum to further educate and engage readers in key areas that could impact their families, businesses, and communities.
