Trump To Sign Executive Order To Erase Health Insurance Rules Under ACA.

In a front-page story, the Wall Street Journal  (10/11, A1, Radnofsky, Armour, Mathews, Subscription Publication) reports President Trump plans to sign an executive order today that will attempt to reverse provisions in the Affordable Care Act that placed limits on sales of short-term insurance and will expand alternative insurance arrangements to allow small businesses to associate together for the purpose of buying insurance.

        On its front page, the New York Times  (10/11, A1, Pear, Abelson, Subscription Publication) reports that “Although Mr. Trump has been telegraphing his intentions for more than a week, Democrats and some state regulators are now greeting the move with increasing alarm, calling it another attempt to undermine President Barack Obama’s signature health care law.”

        Reuters  (10/12, Pierson, Raymond) reports that the executive order “will almost certainly be challenged in court, several legal experts said.” The piece adds that state attorney generals “would likely be among the first to legally challenge Trump’s order or regulations,” and that Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said Wednesday that she “will oppose any attempt to undermine” her state’s residents’ access to healthcare.
