Trump says he will now keep portions of Obamacare

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, Ohio -

In a surprising turn of events President-Elect Donald Trump has now told some news outlets including the Wall Street Journal that he will keep portions of President Obama's signature health care plan.

Trump had originally said he would repeal Obamacare, but now he says he will repeal and replace only portions of it.

He plans to keep sections that allow coverage for pre-existing conditions and coverage for young people until the age of 26 under their parents insurance.

Doctor Michael Sevilla, a family practice physician in Salem says several of his patients have shared real concerns about the issue.

"I've seen a lot of anxiety this week in my office especially Wednesday, and it's basically just fear of the uncertainty, not knowing what's going to happen," Dr. Sevilla said.

President-Elect Trump also says there will not be any lapse in health care coverage whenever the change to a new plan occurs.
