Compliance Alert: Trump Administration Releases Executive Order on ACA

This alert addresses the actions taken by the Trump administration last Thursday. First, the Executive Order calling for the expanded availability of association health plans, short-term insurance plans, and health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs). It also covers the President’s announcement that the government will no longer be reimbursing insurance carriers for cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments made in connection with Marketplace plans. The Executive Order has no immediate effect as it simply directs other agencies to begin drafting rules; however, the cessation of cost-sharing reduction payments is effective immediately and will halt the upcoming October 18, 2017 payment unless a court intervenes or Congress appropriates the funding.
