There's not much Democrats and Republicans agree on when it comes to President Obama's Affordable Care Act. 

And that sentiment is even echoed in the medical world.

"The feelings among doctors are bitterly divided. There's just no question, and that has not gotten any better over the last eight years," said UB Senior Associate Dean for Health Policy Dr. Nancy Nielsen, M.D., Ph.D.

One thing most people agree on is the success of having the most people insured in American history, as well as requiring insurance companies to cover preventative screenings and continue coverage for people with preexisting conditions. 

Trump has said they will not change those measures, but experts do believe that very early in his presidency, the ACA will be repealed. 

What that actually means is still to be determined, and it could take years for major changes.

"This administration really needs to be careful about is to not make matters worse. Whether they do a two year transition period, three year period, or even a four year period, whatever that period is, Republicans now own this," said BlueCross BlueShield Association Federal Relations Vice President John Cerisano.

Republicans have wanted to repeal the individual mandate, requiring people to have health insurance, but experts say the GOP plan is really just rebranding that measure.

"A central piece of most Republican plans is a tax credit that people could use to buy health insurance. If you don't buy health insurance, you don't get the tax credit. It's been pointed out by some economists that it's essentially the same thing as the personal mandate. The tax credits that they're talking about are in the thousands of dollars so it'd be more substantial loss for those who fail to buy health insurance," said Health Policy Director Bill Hammond, of Empire Center for Public Policy.

But without concrete plans, experts say it's just too soon to tell what healthcare under Trump would mean for patients and their wallets.

If there are federal cuts as part of a repeal effort, public policy experts say they anticipate states would cut the essential plan or catastrophic plans because those receive almost all of their funding from the federal government. 

But they don't anticipate widespread rolling back of Medicaid on a state level.

They also say they believe some states, like New York, would continue their own healthcare system on the state level, similar to what Massachusetts enacted before the ACA.
