Health Care executive order issued: Trump

Donald Trump

On October 12, an executive order was signed by US President Donald Trump, making the buying of more forms of health insurance at potentially cheaper costs, easier for the people.

The order recognized three main areas of priority: allowing small business access to association health plans (AHP), expanding use of short term, limited-duration insurance (STLDI), and expanding health reimbursement arrangements (HRA). Under AHPs, small business will be able to come together, even across state lines, to provide less regulated, cheaper health care for employees.

Opposition leaders have condemned Trump's actions. Senate Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, stated "having failed to repeal the law in Congress, the president is ravaging the system." Specialists have stated that this could dismantle comprehensive coverage for the sick and lower classes in the country, contrary to the goals set out within the executive order itself.
