Where Does Healthcare Reform Stand?
31 October 2017
View Client Update
Since the collapse of congressional efforts to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), both President Trump and Congress have taken steps that could have a significant impact on the healthcare industry.
President Trump issued an Executive Order that directed several government agencies to begin rulemaking efforts that could facilitate the purchase of lower-cost health insurance plans that are exempt from many of the ACA’s regulations. He also cut off Cost Sharing Reductions, which are subsidies that help low-income individuals pay for healthcare expenses.
A bipartisan group of Senators released the “Bipartisan Health Care Stabilization Act of 2017.” If enacted, it would (i) restore Cost Sharing Reductions; (ii) facilitate the federal government’s approval of Section 1332 waiver applications that would allow states to modify some (but not all) of the ACA’s requirements; and (iii) enable anyone to purchase catastrophic plans which have low premiums but very high deductibles.
