After the Republicans failed to repeal ObamaCare, President Trump has used his power to undermine ObamaCare, and signed an executive order which allows small businesses band together across state lines to buy cheaper, less regulated health plans for their employees with fewer benefits.
“With these actions, we are moving toward lower costs and more options in the health care market, and taking crucial steps toward saving the American people from the nightmare of Obamacare,” the President said.
“This is going to be something that millions and millions of people will be signing up for,” noted Trump, “and they’re going to be very happy. This will be great health care.”
Trump’s executive order to undermine ObamaCare was immediately opposed by the The largest hospital association. The American Hospital Association sent huge warning which says that Trump’s order could destabilize insurance markets and make coverage unaffordable for people with pre-existing conditions.
The executive vice president of the American Hospital Association, Tom Nickels said that Trump’s order “will allow health insurance plans that cover fewer benefits and offer fewer consumer protections.”
“No one can predict future health care needs with complete certainty and such plans could put patients at risk when care is needed most.”
“In addition, these provisions could destabilize the individual and small group markets, leaving millions of Americans who need comprehensive coverage to manage chronic and other pre-existing conditions, as well as protection against unforeseen illness and injury, without affordable options,” Nickels said.
“The AHA is committed to ensuring that individuals and small businesses have affordable, comprehensive health care coverage options, and we encourage the Administration to achieve this goal without sacrificing critical consumer protections by stabilizing the individual and small group markets.”
