By Buzzfeed News Staff WriterDale Kromer / Associated PressDonald Trump’s signature health care law, known as the Affordable Care Act, is now law in Nevada.
On Friday, Trump signed the law into law, signing a memorandum of understanding with the state’s health care providers to establish the state-run health care exchange and other new services to ensure health coverage for Nevadans.
Kroger, a leading pharmacy chain in Nevada, has been a vocal opponent of the Affordable Healthcare Act and the president-elect, saying he plans to roll back the law in its entirety.
Krosher also joined a bipartisan group of healthcare providers and advocates in an amicus brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in opposition to Trump’s executive order blocking federal funding for state exchanges, which would have given more access to the federal government.
The court’s decision in June said it would hear the case on Sept. 5.
On Saturday, Trump met with Kroger CEO David Sacks and Vice President Mike Pence to discuss the state of health care, the Associated Press reported.
During the meeting, Trump was shown a video of the president signing the health care bill into law and said, “We have a lot of good people in here.
We have a good people, and they want it to be a little bit better than what it is.”
The president then made a point of signing a letter from the CEO, thanking him for his leadership.
Trump has previously suggested he would be open to cutting Medicaid to the state if he wins the presidency, though he has said he does not believe he will be able to do so because it is currently a federal entitlement program.
On Wednesday, the president said he would not support a Medicaid cut for states under the Affordable Health Care Act.
