Please note: due to many government regulation changes in the last week, there are two important client alert notifications in this email. 

 

TRUMP SIGNS EXECUTIVE ORDER DESIGNED TO CHANGE ACA RULES

 

On Oct. 12, 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order intended to change certain rules under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The order would relax regulations on association health plans. This change could allow individuals and small businesses to purchase health insurance policies across state lines and avoid certain ACA requirements.

The executive order also directs the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and the Treasury (Departments) to consider expanding the availability of low-cost short-term, limited-duration insurance and health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs).

WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCES SOME ACA

SUBSIDIES WILL END

 

On Oct. 12, 2017, the White House announced that it will no longer reimburse insurers for cost-sharing reductions made available to low-income individuals through the Exchanges under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), effective immediately. Because Congress did not pass an appropriation for this expense, the Trump administration has taken the position that it cannot lawfully make the cost-sharing reduction payments.

 

This decision follows the U.S. House of Representatives' position in a lawsuit it filed against the Obama administration in 2014 challenging the federal government's authority to fund these cost-sharing reductions.
