Many insurers as well as the general public are likely anxiously waiting to see if and when Trump's executive order will come out - and what exactly it will contain, as it could potentially have very substantial implications for health care in the United States. Precise details of the measure aren't yet known, but Trump has previously previewed unilateral action that would make it easier for small businesses to buy coverage by joining together.
Trump promised on Tuesday morning to sign an executive order giving healthcare to "many".
"I will be signing something probably this week which is going to go a long way to take care of people that have been so badly hurt on health care", Trump said ahead of a meeting with Henry Kissinger, the former secretary of state.
Trump's executive order is expected this week and would allow businesses and other groups to buy health insurance together.
If one denies the legality of the above, take time to read the U.S. Constitution and witness the brilliance of the writers of this great document and how we are protected from rule by one person. "After tax reform, Republicans could adopt another budget resolution next year that provides reconciliation instructions to repeal and ultimately replace Obamacare".
Though, it is challenging to fully make any determinations about the executive order, since it is still possible that Trump will make changes to its contents or not sign it at all - something which, according to Vox, he has done with other executive actions in the past.
Trump appeared to be alluding to the average increase between 2016 and 2017 in premium costs for a plan purchased on the Obamacare individual insurance exchange in Arizona, which was 116% before subsidies were included.
"It unwinds the ability of people with pre-existing conditions to get insurance under the ACA", Garthwaite said. Kulhman also added that he believes that fears about association plans undermining the Obamacare marketplace are "overblown".
"We're going to have to do something with Obamacare because it's failing". While there were some changes to Medicare under Obamacare, Trump's concerns about the individual exchanges have nothing to do with the program.
