The medical field, like the rest of the country, is divided on whether the law should be repealed, changed, or left as it is. With a new administration taking over the White House and Republicans remaining in control of Congress, it’s a certainty that there will be serious changes to the ACA, but it’s currently unclear what those changes are going to look like, particularly for those working in the medical profession.
