WASHINGTON – Republicans in the House of Representatives have set Feb. 20 as a target date to get a bill repealing Obamacare to President-elect Donald Trump.

Trump himself plans to take executive actions to undo the Affordable Care Act on his first day in office, said Vice President-elect Mike Pence in an article on The Hill.com.

Healthcare experts have warned that repealing the program without an immediate replacement would create chaos. Twenty million people are covered under the act.

HME providers are no fans of the ACA. A recent HME Newspoll showed that 28% of respondents think repealing and replacing the program should be Rep. Tom Price’s top priority as secretary of the Department of Heath and Human Services.
