These are the ten essential health benefits (EHBS) that are currently in place under the Affordable Care Act, or what is also called Obamacare. President Trump and his administration originally had these ten essential health benefits included in the originally released version of the AHCA bill, or what is also being referred to as “Trumpcare”. It was not until the Trump Administration felt pressure from the House Freedom Caucus to remove these essential and popular health benefits that they were ultimately removed in an updated version of the bill.
