But in many places now, the HHS.gov website has watered down language that refers only to the "current law," where it had referred to the "Affordable Care Act" as recently as late January.
And in a section where the current HHS.gov site does explicitly mention the ACA by name, the site merely links to the full, very complicated text of that law, with an introduction that makes no mention of the benefits of the law to consumers.
Previously, that "About the Law" page began by saying, "The Affordable Care Act puts consumers back in charge of their health care."
"Under the law, a new 'Patient's Bill of Rights' gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health," that now-deleted section had said, according to an image of it captured by the Internet Archive: Wayback Machine.
Also gone from that page is slew of "key features" of the law, which include banning lifetime limits on most insurance benefits and allowing adults under age 26 to be covered by their parents' health plans.
The page that now details ACA rules on pre-existing conditions does not have — as it previously did — a section entitled "A Real Story," which included a video and written text about a diabetic man in Florida who before Obamacare had worried about his lack of health insurance.
The page on "Young Adult Coverage" previously had noted: "Before the health care law, insurance companies could remove enrolled children usually at age 19, sometimes older for full-time students." That line has been removed, as have links to a report on 3 million young adults gaining insurance due to the ACA, and to a frequently asked questions page on young adult coverage.
Completely gone now is a section entitled "ER Access & Doctor Choice," which had explained how the ACA "helps preserve your choice of doctors and opens access to out-of-network emergency services."'
An HHS spokesman has not yet responded to a request for comment on the changes.
Long-time Obamacare foe Tom Price, a Republican from Georgia who had been a member of the House of Representatives, was sworn in Friday as President Donald Trump's secretary of HHS.
A former top Obama administration health official on Friday criticized the elimination of details about the ACA on HHS's site.
"Hiding information and making it more difficult for consumers to learn about the Affordable Care Act and what it means in their lives is just the latest in a string of efforts by the Trump Administration to sabotage the health-care law," said Lori Lodes, who previously served as communications director for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the HHS division that directly oversees Obamacare.
