The Trump Administration has begun scrubbing positive references to the Affordable Care Act from federal websites.
According to the Washington Examiner, pages housed within HHS.gov that link to federal marketplace healthcare.gov now often say “healthcare law” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” Sections praising the law’s effects on costs, coverage and care have been taken down. And the #CoverageMatters blog, where the Obama administration collected stories of people who had been helped by the law, has been removed, CNNMoney reports.
The changes first appeared on February 1.
The Department of Health and Human Services did not immediately return a request for comment.
Early Friday morning, the Senate confirmed Tom Price as the new head of Health and Human Services.
