Five Health Care Takeaways from the State of the Union Address

President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address on Tuesday of this week.  Several health care related achievements and issues were discussed during the 90 minute address to the Congress and the nation.

Health Leaders Media has outlined five key healthcare takeaways from the speech.  They are:  “1. The individual mandate is now gone.    2. No mention of upcoming funding deadline or community health centers.   3. Will ‘call for unity’ result in bipartisan solutions?   4. Reduce price of prescription drugs, endorse ‘right to try’.   5. Signed VA healthcare accountability bill into law.”
