The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) directs the state of Georgia to reevaluate the data used to create a waiver that would provide a private alternative to ACA. The waiver was approved under the Trump administration in November 2020, however, Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, administrator of HHS’ Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, believes there have been enough changes to policy and federal law to reconsider the waiver’s approval. According to Brooks-LaSure, “The state’s proposal for taking away the most popular option for selecting a health care plan – healthcare.gov – could exacerbate our state’s already high rates of uninsured Georgians and inadequate health-care infrastructure.”.
