Changes in Health & Human Services Administrative Leadership and Direction

The Trump Administration lost again with the scandal and subsequent resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price. Rumors are rampant about his potential replacement. Unfortunately, while Price is out, his agency’s draft strategic plan remains – and notably absent is any reference to continued implementation and support of the Affordable Care Act’s coverage initiatives or many references to the health needs of minority groups. Instead, faith and faith-based organizations are prominent and language about protecting individuals from ‘conception to natural death’ (which is language like that used by anti-abortion groups). Comments on the strategic plan are due October 26.
