President Trump has stated on several occasions that he will deliver a replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act following the confirmation of Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga) for the role of Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). Many of the specifics have not been shared, but President Trump has hinted to what this plan may include.
